Hi Judy, Jeff and Jason, I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. I will always remember his smile and good nature. I remember when we planned mom & dad’s 25th anniversary ‘this is your life’ and he was a great narrator!

Dear Bonitatibus Family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mike at Kamyr for a summer when I was 15. He was a great man and always so proud of his family. I used to run into him from time to time at True Value and he remembered my name and was always such a nice guy. Again, sorry for your loss, he was a wonderful person.

Rest in peace. Prayers to the family.
