So sorry for your loss. Gus and I went through AIT at Fort Sill Ok. in 1966. We served in the same unit in South Vietnam 66 and 67. I haven’t talked to Gus in some years. I always knew Gus to be a fun loving and dedicated man.

Uncle Mike you where fun loving unconditional man. Mike you brought laughter to everyone around you and loved your family so much. One of the first memories of you was when you had taken coleen and me to the circus and had the light guys shine the spotlighted on us when it was pitch black. Mike we will miss you dearly and though your not here in the physical your memories and spirit will be with us forever. I love you Uncle Mike and I’m glad your pain is gone now watch over us and make us strong until we see you again. Your nephew Timmy.
