    I am saddened by the news,

    it was a pleasure knowing Mike and singing with him. We had a lot  of good times at West Kimberly Mall. The Grinch was my favorite! 

    Sorry Mark and family for the loss of a loved one too soon.

    Christiansen family, Sorry for the loss of Mike he was getting closer to God in his life sometimes we don't understand why things turn out the way they do in life. But this one thing I do know Mike will be waiting for you when you get on the other side. But right now he is an angle watching over you thee whole family. God said not to be troubled in your heart but look to him. I lost my wife Patsy at the age of 59 1/2 in Nov.5, 2015. It was was very hard but God gave me this scripture from his word. In St.John 14:1-4. 1) it says this. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2) In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receieve you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4) And whither I go ye know, and the way you know. Amen KJV. Bible.   P.S. Christiansen Family, I myself I don't go to pine Creek church , i still consider you my friend. I look at your family through "Gods" eyes. Love You Guys, Jack wright

      Thank you for the message on Mike's obituary.  I was just looking at it again, I sure miss him.  I am sorry to hear of your wife Patsy's passing.  I would like to catch up with you- I have connected with some Wright family and I saw Kevin, Bill and your dad when I went to church with Mike a few weeks before he died.
