    Reggie and Brenda I’m sorry for the loss of mike. I will never forget his large hat collection and his sincere and strong hand shake he would offer when I entered the house. He is with the Lord and has a new body. We will see him again and rejoice with him. I wish I could have been with all of you yesterday but please know I thought of your family during the day.

    Brenda and Reggie. We send our heartfelt sympathy. Remember when we lived next door on Pine Street. Mike was always so excited to open the door when someone would knock. He enjoyed company and he was always so happy when it was Mr. Mike. They had a special connection. May he join all the other angels as he watches over all of y'all and be surrounded by the love of Sammy, Irma and Dixie.
