Mike was different, a jack-of-all-trades, a wandering child that never found his niche in this life. Mike wasn't perfect, but none of us are. He had a kind heart and a loving spirit. He knew who God was and what love was. He was loved and he will be missed.
Visitation and Memorial Services led by Larry Creasy, Jr. were held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday, Nov. 24, at McDaniel Funeral Chapel in Senath, Mo.
