From: Judy Stringer
Relation: friend

Mike was the valued friend of Terry’s from the time they spent on the recy line in the summer after Mike arrived in Canada. Times together were special- in Williams Lake and Victoria. Seeing the furniture that Mike made and the home they made for each other was inspiring. Hearing of their travels was awesome. Mike lived a full life and touched many hearts.

From: Ken and Diane Felker

We are so pleased we had a good visit with Mike shortly before his

We met Michael through Audrey’s work at an Oliver winery, in 1995. Michael impressed both of us as a very intelligent man with a great sense of humour. After meeting Dorothy, we were so pleased to maintain a friendship over the years, as our family grew. It is great to have memories of Michael at his best. We send Dorothy all our sympathy and support at this very difficult time. Love Audrey & Mark.
