Our prayers and God's love go out to you during this difficult time. Mike was a 1975 classmate of mine and we took ag and FFA together for a few years. Mike was well liked and enjoyed leaning new things. He loved growing up on the farm!

Dear Mrs. Frank: We share in your family’s sadness upon being told of Mike’s passing recently. For many years Mike was out steadfast friend in preparing our tax return and assuring that we left nothing to chance prior to filing. Whenever we needed good financial counseling, a quick phone call brought an immediate reply that gave us confidence that our concerns would be properly handled. When Bill Heichel visited us in Florida a few weeks ago and told us about Mike’s semi-retirement, we were happy and hopeful for the Frank family. Our prayer is that you can find the strength to carry on in his absence. May God bless you all.
