So glad that we got to know Mike through Spartanburg United Methodist Church. A truly kind and intelligent man.....Loved talking to him Sunday mornings before church service. I will miss his knowledge of Randolph county and our "yard stick" conversations! A true pleasure to be around!

Connie and Family: I didn't know Mike very long, but he was one of the nicest people I have ever met. You two always looked happy together. And, as a fellow sailor, I am wishing Mike "Fair winds and following seas."

Connie and girls
Sorry to read news of Mikes passing. Jim and I are traveling and unable to attend calling/service. Mike never knew a stranger. We both enjoyed visiting with him. Sending all of you sympathy and prayers.
