I am SO sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Mike was one of my absolute FAVORITE customers. He was always so happy and kind. I was wondering why he had not been in to see us since right after Christmas. My prayers to Mike's family. He was such a GREAT man!!!

Dear Lori, Lindsay, Patrick and the Wrobel family,

I wish I could there with you. Mike was one of a kind, larger than life . We always shared some good laughs, and I'll miss being with him every summer.
