    I truly have no words to express the loss I feel. The experiences we shared as brothers from different mothers is unmeasurable. His parents Lil and Ernie were like second parents. Mike, " I'll see you on the lakes, I'll miss bro."

    To Rachel, family and friends in Chicago and the Waupaca area my prayers are always with you. Mike was one of the best!!
