Deb and Justin; Nothing we say will make the pain of having to say good-bye to Mike, so soon, go away. Mike and yourselves are one of the reasons living and raising our family in Mount Forest is so memorable. You could always count on Mike to support, encourage and even instigate a lot of the shenanigans we got into. His beautiful smile, contagious laugh and facial expressions from across a room always meant he was thinking of the next event/prank of the day/evening. Hugs to you both Deb and Justin. XO— Tali and John McGovern, August 8, 2022
