Prayers and Condolences for Madbiker's son Michael

Just received word of the passing of Ralph's son Michael. I met him, he was polite and seemed a good, hard-working young man.

Prayers for you, young man, and deepest sympathies to your family.

I heard the sad news from Wayne. I'm sure words cannot describe the sorrow you must feel on the passing of your son. My sincere sympathy to you and your family Ralph.

Michael

May he go with God and have the best of peace. I didn't get a chance to know him, but I am sure we will be friends when we all get togather someday, my prayers are with you and yours, God bless.
