Jennifer, Colleen, Leslie and families. We have been thinking about all of you during this difficult time. Uncle Mike was a great man! He cared deeply for all of you. He was so proud of all of you and your families. He was so full of life and the kindness and love that he showed to everyone was a true testament of his character. We will miss him so much! Mom will especially miss his visits and their long chats. He was a true family man! ❤️
Love, your sister Stella Huntley, Marion and Garth Dyck, Allen Dyck and Taylor Sigurdson.
