  3. Dear Mayo family,
    I am Mike’s friend, but want to share a thought for you all. It is in times like these we reminisce experiences we have had with those who have gone on to the next life. Each one leaves a mark on the lives of others. May the marks we leave be such that will bring a smile from the lives we have touched and to our Heavenly Father. Isaiah 26:3
    May God put His loving arms around you in way you feel His presence, and may He bless you all.

  4. Mike, I just wanted you to know that I am praying for you and your family. May God Bless you all during this difficult time.

  5. Mike and Family, words cannot adequately express the deep and heartfelt sympathy this message brings to you and your family. You are in my prayers.
