Mickey purchased my dad’s (Hunter Grove) kennels during a period of my dad’s illness. I was sad to see a lot of memories go but Mickey became a great friend to our family. My sons and I would spend time with Mickey at the kennels during hunting season. He was always ready to take us down memory lane to the places I grew up hunting with my dad. My heart goes out to his family and I can honestly say I loved that guy!!
