To The Jensen Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death at any age is our enemy. Even God considers death to be our enemy and he has promised through his word the bible in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4, to eliminate death along with pain and sickness forever. The earthly resurrection that Jesus spoke about in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which read, “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” is soon to take place and will allow us the opportunity to welcome back all of our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, to awaken on a paradise earth and enjoy life forever upon it. Psalms 37 verse 29. What a happy time that will be. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a real hope of being reunited with you loved one again.

Mike was a very nice individual, and a super boss here at Chase(Bank One). He introduced me to Camp Mary Orton, where I volunteered a few times. So sorry to hear of the loss of Mike, and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Diana and Family, Mary and I are very sorry to hear of cousin Mikes passing. I have such wonderful memories of Mike and I playing together at Harold and Margaret’s and Phyllis and Eric’s house. We were the same age and later talking together about banking whenever we could see each other. We wish we could be there to see all of you and to celebrate his life.
