    When Jr. called to tell me about Mike I was shocked. Thought about him all day wondering what happened. Mike was a great guy, good worker and certainly a friend to a lot of people. His passing will leave a void in a lot of hearts.

    Chase – what can anyone say that hasn’t already been said about your dad. He was a pretty amazing guy. He was very genuine and so friendly, the kinda of person that you could call a friend after meeting him for only a few minutes. Watching him talk about you, his whole face would light up, you were easily the best thing in his life. I can’t begin to imagine how hard losing your dad must be but always remember his love for you and that he will always be with you in spirit. You can talk to him whenever you need too, I’m sure he is there listening even if he can’t talk back.

    You are one of Davie’s best friends, you were there for him like no other, spending the summer’s out at camp, and keeping him company!!! You were a very good friend of mine as well, you were the first one to come rub my tummy and say congrats to me and Davie when we got pregnant, and you were there to play with our little man when he was first born. I have too many fond memory’s, you are very missed, and loved, but I do know that Davie aka Hytinen :)misses you more then I can say!!! We love you!!!

    Mike-I was just talking with my husband about how you were such a big part of my childhood. You were at most of my major life milestones from when I was young to when I got married. You and my sister gave us Chase….thank you so much for that. I hope you can rest in peace.

    Mike was a cousin and a good friend of mine over the years. He was the type of person that would give you the shirt off his back even if it was the only one he had. Will always remember hanging out with him and working in the woods with him. Had some GREAT times and i know many others did too. Will miss Jim a lot. Sending thoughts and prayers to his other friends and family and his son Chase who is definitely too young to have to deal with a loss like this:(

    Tammi, Chase and family,
    Please accept our most sincere condolences on the loss of Mike. I remember him from high school and of course, from his time with Tammi. There is nothing I can say to ease your pain, but please know you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many.

    Mike, your memory will live on in our son, Chase. Every day I will be reminded of you through his eyes. The hardest thing was telling him you had passed…..and the second hardest thing was putting my signature on a piece of paper directing them how to take care of you. You were my first true love, and Chase’s father…..and for those reasons alone, Chase and I will never forget you…..RIP Mike. To the entire family of Mike’s, and to Cheryl…..know that I’m always here for whatever you need.

    Michael you will be greatly missed. I wish we were able to spend more time together in your final days. You know your niece adored you that is why Michael is named after you. I am so glad that you were able to spend time with him, holding him, laughing at him and loving him before you went to join mom in Heaven. You will never be forgotten my dear brother. I love you with all of my heart!

    I think it was by the Grace of God that I got to see and visit Mike a couple weeks before his passing. I had the opportunity to see him smile once more…his human nature was so genuine. His last words to me remain ever present in mind and I will never forget his politeness and vivid picture of life as he transitions into the ever-after. God Bless all of his friends and family. He will be sadly missed by many.
