    Mike was one of my dearest friends for almost forty years. Some friends come and go but Mike was always true. I never liked to call him an employee because he and I worked side by side for so many years.I will greatly miss my friend "IronMike".His smile ,talents,work ethics and integrity is hard to find in one man . Mike will always be in our hearts ! The family is in our prayers. God Bless You, Doyle & Linda Jackson
