It's with a very sad heart that I'm praying for Mike's
family's healing and strength in this time of sadness.
But, we look to the joy and hope of the resurrection!
Promised by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the
assurance that Mike is in a better place in his heavenly
home. I looked at Mike asq2 a younger brother of which l never had a friend with whom l shared so many
