I did not know him , but heard only good things from the people that knew him and the family. I hope the following poem brings his loved ones some comfort 💞 The Tide The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, but echoes on in sweet, soulful refrains. For every joy that passes, something BEAUTIFUL remains. ✨ anonymous With love, Shelly Anderdon

So Sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Mike ALWAYS had a smile on his face. He would go out of his way to say "hi" and "catch up" when he'd see me from a distance at our kids sports events or around the Fox Cities. He was this way to everyone. I always enjoyed our conversations and sharing "what's new" in each other's lives. Our deepest sympathy to his family.

I wish we had the right words, but there are no right words. Please know that we are holding all of Mike's family and closest friends in our hearts. Mike was kind and humble and he touched many. I know the void will be tough for his family, and those who called him a friend will miss him greatly.
