Celebrating the life of Michael Woods
Thank you for signing Michael Woods's Guestbook
Nan and family, We were so sad to hear of Mike's passing. My family has been going to Surfside every October for the month of October. We would call Mike to come by and visit with us and catch up on several occasions. It was always so good to visit with him. Mike had such a great personality and kept us laughing. So fun to be around. He would always express love for his family. Please know our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you and all the family. Love and Hugs!

I'm sorry that you've lost Mike. It was one of the pleasures of my life to grow with Mike and Marsha. He was always one of my heroes and could always be the most fun to be with. We'll miss him.

My Dad and Mikes Dad were very good friends, although Mike was 10 year older than me we were very good friends in my late teenage years, we had some good times together when I worked at "B and L tire company". I had not talked to him in years, my prayers go out to his family, he will be dearly missed.
