Going to miss you cousin, loved our visits to your mom and dad’s house on Indian Creek when I was growing up. When my dad was sick in the hospital you were a comforting presence for my family. I always admired you, Kenneth and Rita for the love and respect you had for your mom and dad. Rest in peace.

I know there is much sadness here over the loss of Michael for so many of us, but I know there was rejoicing in heaven when he walked through the pearly gates and into the arms of Aunt Bertha and Uncle Calvin and Rita and Bo and so many others who were waiting their turn to hug him and welcome him home. May his memory always be a blessing to those who love and miss him already. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, Mary Kay, Cindy, Paula, and Trish and your families.
