My mom told me a story about how the cousins--particularly Mike and my mom--liked to rake leaves in Lulu/Grandaddy's yard, because the reward was to light the piles on fire. No mishaps (as far as I was told)... just a bunch of happy kids lighting things on fire. It makes me smile. We should have had many more laughs and cousin hangs with Mike, but I'm forever grateful I saw you all recently. Mike was a fantastic human being, and I'm glad we're family.
Mike was a true Gold and Black Terrier!! Megaphone in hand and arm raised in the direction shouting, “It’s another 1st down!” “Go Dogs”. Loved his Spirit, loved the man. So very saddened by his loss. Prayers for his family. Karen Cavin Harpe
We are so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. What a privilege it was to receive the JL Taylor award, but how much more of a delight when Mike presented that same award to my daughter, Anna. I enjoyed our friendship as youngsters and regret that we did not keep that up into adulthood. Nonetheless, I consider Mike to be a friend. I wish you and Emily peace

We were so saddened to read of Mike's homegoing. The only peace you can have is knowing that he is now well and happy with Jesus and other loved ones. May God be near you during these grieving days.
God does not put more on us than we can bear. At the time, it certainly feels like it is unbearable. This truly has been a difficult year for you. Possibly someone watching your life, will find their way to the Savior, through your trials.
Through God's gift of memory, you can keep your dear one close to you. Thinking on good times will bring sunnier days. Bob's birthday is February 28 also.
You are in our thoughts and prayers. If we can be of assistance to you in anyway way, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Bob & Kay Hollifield
