Mike always treated me with respect. I had the privilege to deer hunt with Mike and his family for many years. He was always so kind and friendly. Even though Mike is gone the hunting stories will be passed on for generations. He was a good man. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to you all. Chris and Shannon Bertsch, Eau Claire, WI

My deepest sympathy to Jackie and all the family. Mike was a great cousin. He had a big smile and booming laugh. He will certainly be missed by all who knew him. The pain is over for him and he can now rest in the arms of the Lord. Thoughts & prayers going out to all. Barb Thompson-Bowling Green, KY
