I'm so sorry you lost Mike. He will be greatly missed. When I loose a loved one I turn to God for comfort. He feels our pain and has promised to end death and bring back all the ones we've lost. (1 Corinthians 15:26, John 5:28, 29) I hope these promises bring you comfort at this difficult time. My sincere condolences, Corina Reply to this comment

To Mike’s family, As a longtime DataScan associate, I had the privilege and pleasure to know Mike for many years. I will miss his wit, joy, energy, and seemingly boundless knowledge. He was kind, caring, and never too busy to help with an issue or question. It is difficult to fathom that his star, which shone so brightly on Earth, is now in the heavens. He will be sorely missed. With sincere sympathy for your loss, Tricia, Chip and Katey Skelton Reply to this comment
