Mickey was older than I In 1_~8 . Nobody to look up to,we watched Mickey.He couldn’t get trouble if he wanted.The one main thing was,no one ever heard him Judging someone else,,,
Mickey and Barbara were, like their parents, “salt of the earth” folks. I grew up with Barbara and then worked in a professional capacity with Mickey over the years….just such good solid Christian folks. My condolences to the family.
He was such a good family man that touched so many lives. I am praying for his family.
