I miss you Brother. You responded and cared for my mom when she was in cardiac arrest. You gently and lovingly cared for her. Thank you.

Mike had such a HUGE heart, with a genuine love and concern for people. He didn't know a stranger, and could talk to anyone. A very outgoing person, with a big personality, and loved to joke around. He will be greatly missed. Monica, I will be praying for you and your sweet family.

Fluffy was a big guy, but even bigger than his person was his heart, his sense of humor, his personality, and his willingness to be of service to his community. He will definitely be missed.
