"Joyce and Family, I was so saddened to see that our sweet Mike had passed away. I remember the first day he arrived at Rexair, he was so kind and always helpful. What a beautiful man and a treasured friend. He was very missed when he left the company. Always watched for you both when we were out at the hopes of running into you. I never see a National Geographic that I do not think of Mike. Prayers for you Joyce....Love and friendship always. Vicki Huffman"
