I was 12 years old when I lost my uncle mike. He always had a big smile on his face and he always knew how to make you laugh. He knew alot about things but what he knew the most was how to love. He treated me and my sisters all the same none of us was ever left out. He loved his family very much and My uncle mike will always be in my heart .I LOVE YOU UNCLE MIKE.
