    To the Gibson family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29. In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. Mark 5:41-43 I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. Feel free to contact me at (614) 870-2979. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson. Please call.

  7. Michael Bauer :

    I’m so sorry to see his passing. I worked with Mike at Columbus Motor Car Company. He was one of the nicest, most sincere persons I ever met. He was one of the hardest working people I ever knew and always had a smile on his face. No matter what was going on in his life, he was always there to help others around him. He was a true joy to work with. He will be sorely missed.

  8. To the Gibson Family, Please know that you are in my prayers. I am thankful for all the support that will be with you. Love to all

  9. Martha Smart-Cox :

    My Little Brother Mike was such a wonderful person and a great father, husband and brother. He was always willing to help others and asked for nothing in return.
    I’m sure that he would want all of us to celebrate the good life that he had. We can all be thankful that we had him in our lives and continue to remember him as the great guy that he was.
    You will be greatly missed by our family.

    Love Your,
    Oldest Sister Martha
    Niece’s & Great Niece’s and Great Nephews

  10. Gregg Turk and Terry Turk -Barker :

    To Gwen and family,
    I just saw Mike’s passing yesterday, I was out of the country and just catching up on the papers delivered while I was gone. I immediately called Gregg to let him know..we were both saddened by his passing. You know how much Gregg and I enjoyed not only his company, but all of you as a family, when we lived down the street from you. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers!
