Sheila and Family I am so sorry to hear about Mike. Mike and I hired in the mill on the same day and did the count down to 30 years together but both of us stay for 40 years. Mike was a great guy and good to work with.

Sheila, children, grandchildren and family,

I send my heart felt sympathy to you, and understand the grief you all bare with the sudden loss of Michael. May you find some comfort knowing how much he loved you.
Sometimes it is very difficult, in our humanness, to understand the sudden life events that shake us to our core, I too have been there, but always know that absent from this earthly body will always mean present with the Lord. I will always be grateful to Michael for his service to our wonderful country. With much respect, Stevie Hogg and children
