Dear Family
I knew Mike 50 plus years. His parents i knew first, his mother Joan a nurse at soldiers home was a lovely mother and his father a gem. Mike was such a nice guy as well as his sister. What c a kind family. I was so happy to have met them. You were lucky to have a great guy.

What a great picture that perfectly captures Poppa Mike's "essence" My heart is with you all. There aren't adequate words to describe the loss of someone so special. Mark is planning to wake up even more good looking now that Mike can sprinkle that special dust! We love you Shirley, Tina and Michelle and will keep you in our prayers.

Shirley and Family, I cannot get Mike out of my mind. He is gone too soon, too soon. He had an engaging smile and a contagious laugh. We played football together at CB and once one does that the fondness and appreciation never goes away. My heart, prayers and thoughts go to you for your heavy loss. What a man. What a man. God bless you and everyone you love. Mike McClain
