Donna, I am so sorry for your loss. What a great man Mike was.! He will be missed by many. We always talked about our husbands, their golfing, and about our daughters, Sarah and Martha at dance class when they were little girls. I will have a big hug waiting for you at the YMCA. Sincerely, Pat Grams

Dear Donna, We have been talking about times when our lives have intersected with yours, first in LaCrosse, then honored to be a musician for your wedding, and then those encounters at the little cafe in Cascade, all fond memories. May God's presence & promises comfort you. With deepest sympathy, Ray & Marlene
