I am so sorry for your loss Pam. I found out today that Mike is gone. I will always remember his singing telephone messages to me on my phone and for his book sharing.

I am so very sorry to hear about Mike's passing, Pam. I had seen him only a few days prior. I will always remember his great sense of humor. I was looking forward to him coming back to work.
Rest in peace, and Godspeed, Mike. You will be missed greatly. God bless you all.

Dad. Yesterday was absolutely beautiful as we said goodbye. The outpouring of support mom and I received can't be put into words. Hearing the stories and seeing the sadness, and smiles of all the people you touched, brought comfort for me. You were and will always be the best dad, role model, and friend a kid could ask for. Enjoy the movies I sent with, rest easy and look in on mom and I from time to time. Love you with all my heart-Ryan.

I'm not alone saying Christmas 2018 was a rollercoaster of emotional highs and lows. We lost a good man. A husband, a father, a brother, an uncle, great uncle and great-great uncle - as well as a friend. Mike wasn't one to wear emotions on his sleeve, but deep inside was the huggable teddy bear we all know and love. And while we're sad he's no longer with us - it's only his physical presence that is gone. Because he will be with us in every memory we hold dear, every tear we shed, and every heartbeat as we carry him with us from this day forward. RIP, sweet brother-in-law, Mike. Happy trails to you - until we meet again! ~caj

The time of year when blizzards are the norm -
and ice storms can be expected.
Not on this day - it rained softly from dawn to dusk.
You see, Mike passed away that morning and Mother Nature
lost one of her favorites.
He was an avid outdoorsman, hunting, trapping,
playing golf, and a very good baseball player in his youth.
Whether it was putting meat on the table, picking dandelions
on his walks to put in a frying pan -
He appreciated a stunning sunset and the warming sensation
of a marvelous sunrise - more so the latter as he usually was up waiting for it.
The rain that day can be explained away as just the unpredictable
Wisconsin weather -
Or could it be Mother Nature weeping for the loss of her grandest admirer.
