I meet Michael approx. 3 years ago. He had a way of calling me sister-in-law that made Roger (Towers) mad and me smile at the same time. Michael was a true friend to Roger and has been a true friend to me in the past 8 months. My heart is heavy and I pray that the family finds comfort in knowing he was truely loved and will never be forgotten.

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

God send comfort to the bereaved Love family and give them the courage to move forward in your will......In Jesus name Amen

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know. Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way? Jesus said to him I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one come the Father except through Me. Amen.

Miss you Mike...

These are the days we dread when our lives have been touched by someone good and positive in this world. Skyline was where friendships gave birth to familyhood. Love will be missed and I can't imagine a day not running into him without prank to play on me. Travel well my brother. May God hold you in his arms and his hand on your family as they as WE heal from your calling. ONE LOVE

My heart goes out to Michaels family and friends. I have not seen him in many years but when I heard the news I was saddened. Everyone should recognize that God makes no mistake and has decided to bring Michael home. He gave his life helping others.
