I was looking forward to seeing Mike at our upcoming class 75th birthday celebration.  Last reunion I had a wonderful conversation with him, which included sharing memories of our days at First Presbyterian Church and its influence on our lives.  Mike was such a gentle, sensitive soul.

Yes, Mike was a gentle person.  I remember him at First Presbyterian Church as well as his mom Zelna Lowe who was our church organist.  She taught me piano (at Millikin) and organ (at the church).  We have many happy memories of First Presbyterian.
