    Mike’s family, may you find comfort in your loving memories and the great hope in the promise at Revelation 21:4 when death and pain will be gone forever after Almighty God restores his original purpose for the earth (Gen, 1:28 NASB). Then we may again see our loved ones whom we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). Please accept my condolences on your loss.

  • Gary Melton Posted April 27, 2017 4:09 PM

    I met Mike in 1994 and I immediately liked him. As time went by I grew to love Mike. I personally witnessed Mike overcome his problem with addiction and alcoholism. I saw him flourish as a good Christian man. Along his journey I had the privilege to meet his entire family. My heart and prayers go out to his family. Mike touched and had a positive impact on an enormous number of people. He was a kind and forgiving man. He was my friend for 23 years. I will miss his smiles and humorous behavior. May you rest in peace my friend.

  • Dick and Mary Martin Posted April 27, 2017 4:19 PM

    Rest in sweet peace dear Mike. The news of your passing caused myself and family to remember fondly of your dedication to God. Thank you so much for speaking at my dads funeral. That meant the world to me! I wish I could be with the family today as your life is celebrated. Prayers for you, Monica, and the kids. I pray you feel Gods arms around all of you today. Love you all.
