Hello everyone.

I hope you fathers had a great day. You all should be honored every day!

I had a great dad and I know there are so many great dads out there.

I am saddened to tell you that Mike Friend from the Roundhill Store has passed away.

He sure has been a fighter through his cancer. As a dad and a grandfather, he wanted to be with his family as much as possible. He wanted to have more special time, to make those memories with his family.

I know he succeeded.

Now he can rest and enjoy heaven.

We will see you one day, Mike.

I will miss him greatly. I enjoyed my Roundhill morning coffee and bacon egg cheese biscuit. Then after a hot day on the farm, he was still there for my cool glass of ice tea. He helped me with the community for anyone in need.

Christmas food boxes was given out with his help. He was always there to help.

We had a lot of good times.

I will miss him so much. Keep his family in your prayers.
