Dear Lisa we were terribly saddened to hear of Mike's passing. We truly enjoyed our relationship as a result of our time at Monte Vista. I especially liked working with Mike in the HOA and truly appreciated his commitment over the years to stay on the Board where his advice and support was invaluable. Time heals most wounds but the death of a loved one is truly the most difficult. If it helps please know that we both are thinking and praying for you and Mike and your family. Be well!

Warm Regards,
Mike and Carolyn Becraft

I thank the both of you now and always for being so kind with my being in Deep Creek Lake. I pray for you both and may God Bless your family.
