I am truly sorry that Mike has passed away. В  I taught him at Baker High School in the 60s. В  He was a fine person and student and we developed a close friendship. В  He helped me so many times doing plays at BHS and at the Springer Theatre working back stage and helping me gather props and scenery. В  В I'm sorry to see that Gary has passed as well. В I wish I had kept better contact with them both, but I have many pleasant memories to remember them by, especially Mike.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My heart is broken for you, Debbie. You have been through so much and I admire the strength that you have shown. Mike was one of the kindest, sweetest, people I have ever known. His smile always just radiated his love for you and lit up the room that he walked into. I am so glad that I was blessed to have him as a friend and I know we will see him again! My thoughts and prayers are with you always!В

I want to offer my condolences to the Family and friends. Hebrews 4:15 says, “ For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tested in all respects as we have, but without sin.” Yes, Jesus endured sufferings when on earth, including the pain of losing a love one (John 11: 33, 35, 38). It has been promised from our God of comfort that sickness, pain, and death will be removed ((Isaiah 33:24; 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4,5). An additional promise given is that all our loved ones in the memorial tombs will awaken from asleep in death to enjoy life as our loving Creator purposed (Isaiah 26:19; Psalms 145:16). Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.

Yesterday, July 1, 2019, another fellow friend, co-worker, and member of our old fishing club from our earlier days with The Gas Light Company of Columbus has joined those who have gone Home before us to the care of God.

Six of us started the fishing club and later others were added. Four (4) of the fist timers are waiting on the boat for the others to show up and see how many fish they can catch, how much they can eat and yes, drink. (I always had a 2 bottle limit and was designated the driver. I was always the person who separated the fish into individual piles. I was trusted to be fair or I was the only one willing to pick up dead fish. Someone had to be that person.) Those fishing trips were always looked forward to. We had a banker, Charles Kennedy, who collected money every payday so we would be ready to go.

We are all looking forward to making that final trip to meet The Great Fisherman of men so we are storing up blessings for that day.

Our prayers are with you Debbie and the family as you celebrate Mike's Homecoming and grieve at his death. May God give you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
