Oh how our hearts break for you and your boys Misti. Mike really was such a great soul, I remember running into him in the village after one of your boys games or practices, he was such an involved father and we can't imagine the depth of your pain. We are sending our prayers and deepest sympathies, please know we are thinking of you all. Jamie & Missy Wells
