  • It doesn’t happen often, maybe once in a blue moon, that you come across a kindred spirit…a person that becomes the family that you never had. That’s what Mike was to me, a co-worker, a friend, and a long lost brother. Natalia, my wife and I offer our sincere condolences and our deepest sympathy to you, Michael junior, and Natalae Elizabeth during this most trying of times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless!
