  6. Mike was my friend and I am proud to be able to say that. Mike and I worked side by side at Delco Remy (Delphi) for more than 15 years. In all that time I never met a person who did not like or respect Mike, for his values, honesty, and his willingness to help others when they needed it. I will honestly miss Mike, but I know he will never be to far away. My friend maybe gone, but he will never be forgotten. Cheryl, keep your chin up and always remember Mike as your husband and companion forever. May God be with you and your family always. Scotty & Jane Cooper.
