I am lighting this candle as a sign off there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. To honnor a wonderful uncle and to show support for my family. My uncle Mike was a wonderful man of few words. He would help any of us many niece and nephews in anyway. He opened his home to us and showed us support the same as his own kids. I will never forget how good him and my aunt where when I and others needed someone. Thank youfor always being there for us. For my aunt and cousins I pray for strength in your family to get you through the hard times. Love for each other to keep you going so I light this in honor and love Thank you for being a great uncle
