Condolence Messages

  1. Fair Winds and following Winds my friend!. I'll see you soon…Regards as always and it has been a great honor and pleasure.

  2. "es;Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit."es; Zechariah 4:6 In the depth of his hopes and desires lied his silent knowledge of the beyond; And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow, his heart dreamt of spring. He trusted in the dreams, for in them is hidden the Gate to Eternity. Only when he drank from the river of silence he TRULY began to sing. And when he reached the mountain top, he TRULY began to climb. And when the earth claimed his limbs, THEN HE TRULY DANCED…GOD BLESS you Mike…until WE ALL see each other again…my Lifelong Friend…
