    Mike was a great person and would also take time to talk with everyone and see what he could do to help them. When he was a county commissioner he would ask what he could do for the Veterans. Mike was one of the people that I asked about building the the Veterans Memorial on the courthouse square. His response was what can I do to help get it built.
