  20. Unlce Dennis & Aunt Sandy, John, & Dennise,

    I heard the news on my drive in to work Sunday afternoon. As i looked up into the Waianae Mountain Range, i couldn’t help but think of the free spirit that Mike was, and how much he would have enjoyed hunting in those moutains, wild hogs as big as a Great Dane. Then i realized, that is exactly where he is – just where he wants to be, free to hunt everyday, and soak in God’s majestic beauty.

    We wish we could be there to relay our remberances and memories in person.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Aloha

    I was so HAPPY for you when I heard you got married. It was the day after my birthday this year!!! Now I got the message that you are widowed, so soon. I’m so sad and being that I’m in Dallas—-(Peggy called me about the passing)—-I’m not even able to be with you!!! You KNOW I would if I was home!! May God give you His peace and may you be blessed with strength to get thru this extra tough time. Know that Mike is in Jesus’ arms and in a much better place than we are! God be with you, Teff! I love you lots!!’ Gramma Judy

John-we will be back in Iowa late Saturday if you happen to still be in the state. We will try to connect. Otherwise, we are praying for you all. Love, Michelle, Kevin and the kids

  28. When something like this happens, we seem to think back to the to the moments we want to remember; for me, I cannot think of one particular event, but I do know I can’t remember ever seeing Mike grumpy- I just remember his smile and ability to go with the flow. May he continue to live pain free in your hearts and with God in heaven, and may you fill your hearts with the times that brought you laughter.
