In remembrance of a great man, father, brother and friends. It’s amazing the world was able to hold him, because he was bigger than life itself. He loved so much you would have thought he’d met his capacity long ago---not so!!! MikeE always made room for everyone. Gone but never forgotten. MikeE is survived not only by family, but every friend who became family.
