    Sarah and families. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Mike. From all I read he must’ve been a pretty special guy. I guess that is why God wanted him in heaven And knew that he had fulfilled all his obligations as a mortal man on earth. It is such a hard thing to accept what God‘s plan is. We are praying for all of you for acceptance and for the glory of God as mike enters heaven
