I am deeply saddened by the news of your loss from the passing of Michael. My sincere condolences to Niccole, Brittany, Logan and grandson Mason and your entire family. I remember when he and his parents John,Ruth and siblings were very close to me, my parents Tony, Frances and my sister Rosie and my nephew Little John. I regret how far we drifted away tending to our complicated lives. Words cannot describe what I am feeling. A friend told me at my mothers wake, "Death leaves a heartache only The Lord can heal but love leaves a memory no one can steal." May Michael rest in peace! I pray that our Lord brings you and your family the much needed peace during this sad and difficult time.

So sorry to here this. Mike was my manager for years when we worked at Evergreen lawns. We always had fun at work and sometimes after. We had a great group of people there. Most of us moved on from there but that is a time full of great memories that I will always cherish. I will be praying for Nikki and the kids and family through this hard time.
