    Dawn, I know it has been a long time since we have seen each other but I am so sorry to see this… my heart breaks for you. Just know my prayers are with you and the kids and grandkids.

    Mike – you slipped away too quick big brother. I am thankful that we had our conversations, text and phone over last several months. I enjoyed my visit with you a few months ago when I came over. It was a good visit. I just wish we had the opportunity to have that cook out like you talked about us having together. I’ll miss you Mike.
