Our Sincere Condolences

Dear family of Michael,
We are very saddened and surprised to hear of Michael’s passing. Larry has spoke often of Mike’s military service in Viet Nam with great admiration. We have enjoyed hearing from Mike at Christmastime over the last several years. He would always include a line or two of humor in it which made us both chuckle. May you find comfort in knowing that our thoughts are with you at this time as you remember your loved one.
Fly high with the Angels Cousin Mike!
Will miss your card every year!
Larry and Mary K Larson
