Enjoyed Michael stopping in to say hello when ever he was at the store. He was such a friendly guy. Ginnie if you need anything let me know.

Ron Layer on Aug 26, 2020

Always a pleasure to run into Mike, and exchange stories. Great sense of humor and easy to like. So sorry Ginnie for your loss. Life is sometimes just not long enough.

Maurice Foresman on Aug 25, 2020

We are all saddened by Mikie’s passing. We spent a lot of time together on the farm. Mike could fix anything! Three things defined Michael hard work, love of his family, and his Faith. I know as he reunites with his Mom And Dad they will have much to visit about. I hope in Heaven they have farming so he and Dad can work together again. God Bless you my Bother and may The Perpetual Light Shine upon You. Maurice
