    Mike was my aa and fishing buddy. Spent many a hour in a boat with that guy. I acually sold my boat to him when I was hurt in a car accident. He spent in the boat includeing Christ into every terror step. He was my friend and my inspiration. I will miss him dearly. I love him and hope our souls will hook up again in heaven as they did on earth.

    I didn’t really know Mike but am very good friends with his sister Karen Ansell and feel I knew him through her. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to his family praying for healing and peace and acceptance that he is in a better place with our lord and no longer in pain.
