  13. I did not know Mike at all but when I saw of this sad loss I felt I had to tell you I was thinking of your whole family at this time. I have been through a very similar loss as my husband and father of my two sons passed away 8 years ago with a similar accident. I know how hard this time is for the family and know how amazing the support of family, friends and complete strangers is. If after all the craziness has passed and you need someone to talk to that has been through it, I am here you and the family.

  14. Mike was one of the good guys, hard worker, intelligent, funny, and a awesome father to Joshua. You truly will be missed and I know I will miss those unexpected text messages asking for some advice on traveling to New York or sharing with me what science project you and Joshua had done.

    We will miss you and rest assure we will help Tam-Marie and your family to keep your memory alive and do anything possible for your awesome son.

    Angela, Jeff, and Tyler Mathews

  16. My deepest sympathy to the Bradshaw family. A very hard working individual and a great friend to all of us. His smile and zestful spirit was infectious. He will be dearly missed.

  17. To Rick, Punky and Matt
