We are so sorry for your family's loss! Mike was such a dear person. We grew up together in Lyman & our families spent so many memorable times together! More than I can list. Mike taught us 3 Morrison girls how to drive in the little red Mustang. He & I floated down the N. Platte River in a canoe - such sunburns! We had fishing, boating, ice skating, & meals spent together. We all enjoyed watching Mike's athletic prowess in many sports. He was such a joy to know & to grow up with!! Much love goes his way & to you as you grieve his loss. Cliff & Anne Morrison James
