So many years between working with you at First Baptist of Orlando to marrying Paul and calling you "Dad". So many memories of when we lived together for a year at "the beach house"-I will miss your grilling skills, and the salt you would leave behind on the table...But most of all, I will miss the kindness you showed to all you touched! Don't worry, Sarah will carry on the "face last" tradition. Love always, Linda (Mike's daughter in law)
We will miss you, and I promise, we will have a great Celebration of life for you!
