26 years ago our lives were forever changed. Mike was a wonderful husband and an amazing Dad to our 3 boys. He was so often described as a great big teddy bear by our friends. He loved being a police officer and being able to help others. This year has been a difficult one as our youngest son passed away. I know the 2 of them are together in heaven but we miss them both so much. You are forever in our hearts.
