    May God's peace be with you. Cherish the memories you created with your beloved husband. I will always remember him for his caring and loving nature. When you speak of Michael don’t talk with tears, for thoughts of him should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for his life was rich because of you. Remember, Michael is not lost…we know where is nowXS7QD H. Kenneth Alcorn Dayton, Ohio

    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8- "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: (Search: Comfort)

    Condolences to the family during your time of bereavement. Michael will be missed by many in Danville because he always made sure all were taken care of. Mike often reminded me of a promise I made to come back to Danville and help him in the business - I never made it my friend.
