Mike, you were an amazing person, overcoming a lot to make a good life for yourself and your family. You told such wonderful stories, like the time the gate was stuck at the lock and dam in Alton and it turned out that a giant catfish was blocking it. The fish was so big it had to be sawn in half to remove it. Or the time someone dived into the river and thought they were standing on a log, but the log started swimming away; another giant catfish! You were also always calm and patient and soft spoken. You always reminded me of Mom, in appearance and in character. Welcome to Heaven, because I know that is where you are.
Your sister Sandi
