"To me, my brother-in-law was a good man with a great heart. He would always be around for anyone that needed him, be it family, friends, neighbors, and even animals. I admired his know-how on anything he did. If it was something he didn't know, he made it his business to learn and would then go at it with gusto. He was organized and precise. My memories will last forever and I will be forever grateful for all that you taught me."
"How can I choose one story to tell of an uncle who had it all. As a child, I can remember your big bushy beard always telling stupid jokes just to make me giggle. As I grew older you always could make me laugh, you were so funny when the telemarketers would call. I always knew you were a phone call away to help me get things done the right way. The holidays will never be the same without you here to stay and I will never forget that one Thanksgiving day. There are so many thoughts in my head and so many things I left unsaid. I love you uncle you meant the world to me. I promise to take your advice and go in with a smile, so you're proud of me."
"Mike was a kind and thoughtful man. We have only known Mike 5 months- but in that time he was so helpful and kind to us. I have heard the stories of how he made such s huge impact on the families that live in Willow oaks- how tireless and devoted he was to the community, the neighbors and his friends. Rest in peace Mike- you are missed so much already"
"As I sit here I am thinking about how I want to pay tribute to my uncle Mike. I find myself thinking about when I was a child and I was told that Uncle Mike and family were coming for a visit. I couldn't wait to see the fun Uncle that always goofed around with us, all the silly games he would play like blowing on his thumb and making his other fingers grow, letting us pull on his beard and trying to bite us, tickling us till we were crying. Those are just a few memories. Every time it was time for them to leave I would stand in the driveway and cry. As I became older the excitement of seeing Uncle Mike never changed. I am so grateful that my children had so many memories with you as well. Memories that they will carry with them forever. You will always be so special to me and I will hold you in my heart forever. Love you lots xoxo Lisa"
"To the Lisi family,
I had the priveledge and honor of working for and with Mike. He was like a Father, a mentor, and a good friend to me. He gave me the confidence and courage to do my job well! Years later I kept in touch with him as spoke of his Bea, and their many travels. He will be sorely missed...never forgotten!
