    Mr.Mike took me in and gave me a place to stay about 9 years ago. He didn’t ask for anything in return but just wanted me to do better and I did most definitely. He was an Angel when I had no where to go and we stayed very close after even after. He was definitely there when I needed some extra help and I am so grateful. I am praying for your family. He was a very sweet and kind man. I miss him!!!
