    I am a class mate of Mike’s, and would like to express my condolences to the Brown family. I pray that the many memories you hold will carry you through this difficult time. When we were in school he could always bring a smile to your face and would leave you feeling like everything would be just fine. I look forward to the day we will meet again in heaven. May God comfort and carry you through this time.

    Dearest Don and Rose and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing, but as much as anyone could understand, I know that you would not want to keep him here if God was ready for him to come home. Only God knows what is best for us and his timing is perfect.
    I was especially comforted at my husband’s recent funeral by the words in a song that Larry Purvis shared – “If you could see me now, I am standing well and whole………my healing is complete”.
    I also know that you have learned through the trials of this life to trust God. Don and Rose you have always been a special blessing to me and I hope that my love and prayers for you and your family are as comforting to you as yours are to me and mine.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I couldn’t imagine the loss of a child. When I talked with Shane he didn’t know weather to cry or be happy he’s in a better place. I told it’s ok to cry but be happy for him, he’s not suffering anymore and in a better place. I pray that God gives you the peace and comfort you need.
