Jennifer and family, Audrey and family, and Dianne and family. We are so very sad for your loss, a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle and nephew. We will remember his quiet nature, smiling eyes and wonderful smile. May he rest in peace from this terrible disease. Far too young to be gone, but he left wonderful memories for you to cherish through your grieving time. Sending our sincere condolences and our love.

Love Uncle Frank and Aunt Lynda

Our deepest sympathy to Jen and family. Kevin is so glad that he got to see Mike and they had that last chance to reminisce in a way that they always did. Wish we could be there at this time. Thanks Erik for keeping us updated, your dad must have been so proud of how you handled so much in such a short time. Mike will always have a special place in our heart as we know he will in all your hearts. His sense of humour and stories will continue to live on!
