I am so sorry for the loss of Mike to you and your extended family. Mike was like a son to many of us old guys working at the PORTS site. We watched him grow in knowledge, skills, confidence, and character and it made us both happy and proud to be a part of it. When he greeted me, he always had a smile on his face, and made me feel like he was genuinely glad to know me. He touched many lives and made us great-full to know him. Although we don't understand why he had to leave, if we can see him now, we know he is in heaven and walking streets of gold. My best prayers and comfort to you. Dan Longpre

Our love to everyone who knew Michael and especially his family. Michael's memory will live on with everyone whose lives were better knowing him. When the leaves are turning in the UP we will miss his visits. This spring we will plant a memorial tree in the UP grouse woods that will be a living memorial in a beautiful place. Will miss you!
