Uncle Mike was like a Dad to me. He walked me down the aisle at my wedding. He will ALWAYS be with me. The Lord has set him free. He has been released from his earthly bonds, and is now 6' tall, running, jumping, playing ball, and everything he could no longer do. Love you forever Uncle Mike

Little Uncle Mike was the best Great Uncle anyone could ask for. From the times he would scare me to the times he would play with me at family reunions, I will always have great memories with him. I will alway remember him as the one who loved to play cards, draw with me, and make puzzles with me. He will be missed and cherished by all.

My prayers go out to the family. Mike was an amazing man, despite his "size" he live and worked "bigger" than a lot of "normal" people. He loved to joke around and play with us kids, and was a great roll model for us. He will be greatly missed.
