Dear Gayle and Family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. Please know you and your family are in our prayers. I have had the pleasure of keeping up with you somewhat by seeing Debbie Creech in the bank before I retired. I also remember Mike from school and always thought you two were such a special couple. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Love in Christ, Susie

Mike was one of my best friends and I will miss him so much. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers. The vacations we took together on the Epting trips are still talked about often when my family gets together. I feel so blessed that God allowed Mike to be a part of my life. Love Henry and Rose Powers and children.
