  1. Becky and Family: I am so sorry for your loss, I was totally surprised when Nicholas sent me the message. I guess I did not realize how sick Mike was. The Lake Charles has lost a vital choir member; I know everyone will remember him for his beautiful singing. I could always hear him in the congregation, he helped everyone sing a little better by his example. I know you have difficult days ahead but our Heavenly Father will be there to guide you along. My love and prayers are with you all, Pat Slay
