Dearest Robin, please know how loved your family is and how much you have been missed. Michael was such a Godly teacher that greatly impacted us in our walk with God. He was my (Connie) go to person when questions arose about scripture, even after you left our church. Our love to Meaghan, Mike, and Maris.
I am heartbroken for your loss of Michael. I kept for years the card you sent me when Dan died seven years ago. I wish I could just hug you to show how I hurt with you right now.
Please know you and your entire family are being prayed for.

Many happy memories of Michael while he served as pastor of Chestnut Baptist Church in Camden, Maine. Much love goes out to his family.
On behalf of Randy, Rose, and Will, I send our sincere condolences to Robin and all the family. Michael's impact on our family is significant; he baptized Randy, married us, and dedicated Rose. Yet to give Michael credit for those milestones is an error, as he was a humble man and ALWAYS gave glory to our almighty God. We look forward to that blessed reunion in Heaven one day.
