So sorry to hear about Mike’s passing. So many fond childhood memories spending time with your family. Mike was such a good guy who connected with kids. Special memories hanging out at your horse stables, hunting and family barbecues. I’ll remember him with fondness. Prayers to your family as you grieve your loss.

Mike and Dottie were solid members and leaders of our small group here in Colorado Springs! Whenever either of them led a study, we knew we were getting solid, biblical teaching. Mike's comments were always full of wisdom and truth!
