Dear Michael, Tommy, Billy, Milton and families,

I am so very sorry to hear about Mike; such a shock. I’ve known Mike and his entire family all my life and he worked with my Mama and brother at Alexanders for years; they were one big happy family there; everybody grew up with everybody. His Mama, Francis, was our families hairdresser forever and Mr. Haywood was the barber that got passed on to Tommy. We often talked and joked about those “good old days”. I will be praying for your family and I know God will bless you all with the comfort and strength you need now. God Bless you all,

Sue Stroud Davis
