    Uncle Mike was an easy man to get along with and it's he did love life as well as family. I will always remember the last time that I saw him. He still had that smile of his and a great sense of humor. You will be missed Mike by your family left here on earth. But enjoy walking by Gods side in peace and no pain. And also enjoy being with your family in heaven. Love you always. William R & Bev Lesh and kids.
