Doris, Maryann, Mikey and family, I am so sorry to hear of Mikes passing. I remember so many great times we had doing many things together from camping, riding our Harley's, boating on the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, going to Lake of the Ozarks and just having an excellent adventure whatever we were doing. Mike will be missed by me and many others, I'm sure. God Bless you Dorith and Family... Dale and Fran
