One of the most genuine people you could ever meet, he spent every free moment making sure that those he loved knew how much he cared. He made sure to keep everyone laughing until the end. His legacy will live on through the stories that will be told for years to come.
There are not enough words to thank “Mr. Mike’s Dream Team” (Keidra, Bea, Barbara and Lorraine) and Amedisys Hospice for making the last year of his life happy and comfortable. They have become a part of our family and we are forever grateful.
