Mike was such a wonderful member always helping out at the Cragun House when I was a member. He was always busy around Brendan Wood neighborhood. I still have the beautiful stain glass angel he made and gave to me before John and I left Lebanon... He was proud of Alana too!

Alana,
I am so saddened and sorry for the loss of your Dad.

I am glad I had the opportunity to meet Mike at the restaurant just less than 2 years ago. I got a kick out of hearing him talk about arrowheads and he showed me an arrowhead with a built-in twirl shape! Never forget it.

Please pass along my condolences to your family.
