Sixty-four years you spent with us Mike
You inspired us with your passion for sport,
And shared with us your love of music.
You experienced the beauty of the outdoors with us.
You never forgot our birthdays.
Your door was always open.
You never took no for an answer,
And you never gave up
You were stubbornly steadfast in your beliefs,
And you lived on your own terms.
You kept a poem with you
to comfort strangers and friends in their time of loss.
You endured tragedy and pain, and reminded us of all our blessings.
When you were no longer able to do the things you used to do, You encouraged us to fulfill our dreams
Rest in peace, surrounded by family and friends.
We hold you tightly in our hearts, and there you will remain
until our lives on earth do end, when we will meet again.

A celebration of life for Mike will be planned after Covid-19 restrictions have been eased. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, www.kghfoundation.com.
