So sorry to hear of your loss. I knew Mike from 1970 when he would visit the Miller Insurance Agency in Grayson KY. He was a very good and kind person, not many like him today. I feel your loss.

Mike was my Manager at Putnam Agency and I couldn't have asked for a better one even in less than ideal circumstances. Kind, funny and such a good man who loved his family.
