Dear Pam and Family,
So sorry for your loss of Mike ,He was a nice man. I will never forget when I lived in Beaverdam and lived 2 houses from flying j -my dog got loose and went to flying J-he wanted to see what it was all about and Mike was giving him water and food.I thanked him-Mike called dog warden back and I got him home before dog warden saw him-my dog was a big and some were afraid of him but he wasn't-Praying God wraps his arms of peace and love around you all

Betts Family, So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Although we had lost touch since high school, I still remember Mike as such a great guy. So many fond memories of my Junior year at Bath High School with good friends. May you find peace during this time.
