Mike's Obituary

I was here, now I’m gone.  For all of you who read this page just to see who died and
of what, I ain’t going to tell you.  Ha ha ha!  Who cares where I worked?

I am survived by my great friend, lover and wife, Pamela; Three great kids; Brian (Deb),
Shantyl (Adam), and Joshua; two grandkids, Catie and Coleman; two sisters,
Deb (Frank) and Nikki (Chris) and brother, Charlie.

I was preceded in death by my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins
and Pee Wee.

I loved to boat and fish.  I will miss going to Table Rock Lake.  Oh, wait!  I can go any time now!
No driving, gas, place to stay, no money to worry about…how fantastic!

How could I forget my other kids, the four legged ones, Maggie, Max and Dolly.

Well, that’s about it.  Party hardy---have a lot of fun.  No crying---just a lot of laughter,
music, card playing, food and drink. Love you, see ya, bye!  I’m out of here!
