    I like to send my condolences and prayers towards the family I went to go see my dear friend Mike in the hospital I spent about an hour with him I could say that I met a real good guy who went out of his way with his friend Shelly last year to come see me when I was at the hospital I work with him as he trained me to do mornings at Ponderosa I’m saddened by this but I know that he is in a better place God is with him and all the angels as well. Sincerely Anthony Aguilera you will be truly missed my dear friend.

    Mike showed us how to overcome strongholds in our lives and how to forgive and be forgiven, our loss is his gain at this time Mike is walking in the presence of Jesus with a new body and no pain.
    Mike you tought us how to live and also how to die with dignity. You will be missed but never forgotten . Love you and I’ll see you later.

    Sorry for your loss. Mike was a great friend of mine for a few years. He lived next to me in new Ken and then ended up living with me in my basement for awhile. We had some great times watching football and watching the movie cars he loved that movie, lol. RIP my friend.

    There are really not enough words to describe what a great friend and co worker that Mike was. He was truly the best. I will miss seeing his smiling face when we would make our famous fudge and just laugh about everything and solve all the world problems over fudge. I miss you friend. God bless.
