I remember so many evenings when your family cane over to play cards. I remember Mike always making jokes. Mary? Your family, as well as the Riske family had a huge impact on myself and my siblings. Great memories that one could never forget. We are thinking of you all as you go thru this difficult time. The whole Gleason family loves you all. ❤️

I'm so sorry to hear of Mikes passing. I served with Mike in the USAF for several years, and came to appreciate his wonderful sense of humor. I have always been aware of his distinct manor of speaking. The first time I met Mike I was surprised to learn that he was from Michigan, I thought for sure that he was a southern boy. I will miss him, but we all have wonderful memories....Ron Groom
