    I will never forget the time we were camping at Merrimac and Mike let Scott and I practice driving on one of the backroads. Mike had a lot of courage to let us drive. Although I do remember that once was enough! I will miss you Mike.

  8. Jenny Nyman

    I loved our camping trips together and coming over to the house to play with Scott and Andy. Thank you for taking it easy on me with the joking. I will miss you.

  9. Stephanie Nyman

    On one of our camping trips to Merrimac campground Mike was talking with me about the type of books I was reading and Mike went out and bought me a book to read. Also I appreciate Mike letting me live with the family for a year while I was at NIU and cooking things that I liked. Thank you for putting up with me Mike.

  10. Sue and Jim Nyman

    Brenda you and your family are in our hearts and prayers. We will always remember Mike and the good times camping, sitting around the fire, cracking jokes all night. We had so many fun times coming over to your house watching movies together while the kids played and Mike cooking dinner for everyone. He always cooked something we liked and he'd say it's for the Nymans. We will miss Mike and pray that he has found peace.
