I worked with Mike as a physical therapy aide when he hurt his arm. He was a lot of fun and he made me laugh. He was taken too soon.

I worked with Mike on many jobs over the last twenty years, from the Colorado river bridges to houses he was painting at. I would like to say how sorry I am for your loss. Mike was a pleasure to work with, a hard worker, and a genuine good man. I will miss him, and seeing him in his old ford truck. May God bless his family.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
