Locke family:
So very sorry to hear about Mike. I grew up knowing him and his family. I had lost touch through the years. You will
be in my prayers in the days to come.
Love in Christ, Deborah

Eugenia Collins

I am so sorry about Mike. We rode the school bus together for years. I always enjoyed seeing you both in Winona. I
will miss him. I can not come because I had hand surgery yesterday, but I will be thinking of you and praying that you
will find comfort in the days to come.

I work with Michael Locke Sr's son, Michael Locke Jr, in Chattanooga, TN. I'm sorry to hear his father passed. -
