Oh Annie, we are so so sorry. Words seem so inadequate to help ease your sorrow. May you feel Gods love and peace surround you.

I remember one time Mike was in town and he found out I had never heard of Kitty Wells. He took me by the collar out to his car and we had to listen to several songs of hers..great guy, mild giant. RIP Mike.
