    Dear Alice, Brenda, and Marta,

    I’m sorry for your loss of Mike. We share a lot of great moments together, most in the arena of sports. Mike was a battler in every thing he did, he demanded nothing less than is best. I enjoyed reconnecting with him on FB, catching up with him was a hoot. May. The Lord comfort you, and we will see on the other side of the Jordan. My love and mercy goes out to everyone.

  10. Bill Burkett says:

    I was so sorry to see that Michael P. has left us earthly beings. While sad that I won’t get to continue talking with my friend, I am overjoyed that he loved the Lord and shared so much with so many. We attended Ohio U. together and he was such a joy to be around. I will always remember him stopping by to see me in Jacksonville when he went to work for the Miami Hurricanes. His smiling face always cheered up the room and we had a special bond as we both drove classic old cars: Mike’s Olds F85 and my “White Cloud” 68 Fairlane. I’ll never forget the note he left me when I parked in “his spot”.

    It was such a joy to catch up with him this past fall to see what he was doing with himself and watching him spreadi joy with his bass playing and sales expertise. Your son and brother was such a special human being that I was blessed to know and call my friend. Thank you, Lord, for letting Michael P. Nall be a part of my life and make my days brighter. I know he’s smiling and worshipping!
