Memories Timeline


  1. Uncle Mike was a one of a kind person. Or as he always said, they broke the mold when they made him! He'd give the shirt off his back to anyone! I have so many memories of him in my life growing up that I will never forget! Like the day him and his friend Barry LeJeune came over to spend the day with me and they cooked supper for us. We had so much fun that day! He was fun(obnoxious most of the time)and loving, always knew how to make me smile! I will miss the way he would bounce around and act all crazy! I will miss him dearly! Rest in peace Uncle Mike, I'll see you again one day! Love, Sunshine
