      We are so saddened to hear about Mikes passing. My husband Joe is from Frankfort and his aunt Sue Shore called tonight and told us about it. Please accept our thoughts and prayers for your family. Joe has many memories of Mike when he would join him during the Christmas holidays at his Aunt Loucille Woofendales house. I met him much later, but I always enjoyed his laugh and humor. Again … Our prayers are with you. God bless. Pam and Joe McEwen

    I am very sad to hear of Mikes passing. He was always so kind to me and my family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was fun to joke around with. My family and I enjoyed attending church and worshiping God with him. He was always cheerful and had a smile on his face every time I saw him. He Loved the Lord, and showed it in his life. I know he’s rejoicing now. I am sad for his dear wife Christy and his family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

    We are so saddened by Mike’s passing. Not only was he our cousin, he was a friend and brought Christy into our lives, what a blessing! He was always so willing to help where ever needed as was Christy. He was a stong believer in Jesus Christ and gave his life fully to Him and now is in His presence. What a reunion in heaven he, my mom, Phyllis Vickers and Aunt Sue Campbell must be having. Oh, to be a fly on the wall. We are going to miss him so much, we had so much fun on our travels together, just wish we would have had more. We love you Christy and are here for you. We are so sorry we were unable to make it back for the service, I’m sure it was beautiful.

    I just learned of Mike’s passing today and not in time to attend the services. I am an attorney and have known Mike since 1977 when I first became a memebr of the bar. He was a good attorney, good man and a mentor to me in the early years of my practice. My condolences to the family. He will be missed.

    My condolences to the Douglas family and his many friends. I was a classmate of Mike’s, going back to grammar school at Kyger (before South Side was built.) I remember the last time I saw him, sitting on his new motorcycle, on South Jackson Street, with his lovely wife (summer of 2012 when our 1967 class had held its 45th reunion.) He was, indeed, a great person and his passing is a loss to us all.
