Washington State Veterans Cemetery, Medical Lake…

The US Army military memorial service for long time friend Mike Morgan was solemn and moving.  Veterans, families and loved ones have a profound kinship, with a love of country, honor, and duty…  It was an honor and privilege for us to share in Mike’s memorial service to celebrate his life as a special friend, and for his 35 years of service to America.  As a US Navy veteran, Steve was able to salute Mike during Taps.  In keeping with Mike and Lyn’s spiritual traditions and beliefs, the Chaplain shared the 23rd Psalm and offered comfort and counsel to those of us saying good bye to one of God’s best.   Mike’s military honor and service to God and Country added to the immortal bond and appreciation we have for veterans of all wars and military families.

Judy’s friendship message…

Mike and Lyn Morgan have been dear friends in our lives since the beginning.  Lyn is like a sister to me; we’ve been friends for more than 35 years.  We were at Mike and Lyn’s wedding in Spokane, Washington, in the mid-80’s.  Lyn and Mike were perfect for each other, and obviously very much in love.  We made it a point to stay in touch and visit with each other most years because it was always a special time together.  We shared love and laughter with them over the years, and always had a great time.

Mike was a real gentleman, always thinking of others, especially his beloved Lynny.  He treated her with love and respect every day.   Mike was intelligent and genuine, just an all around nice person.  We will miss his fun nature and spending more good times together.  More than that, we so appreciate that we were privileged to know Mike and call him our friend.  Thank you, God, for the gift of Mike!

It’s occasions like this that make us ever more mindful to find joy in every day and treasure our times with the ones we love.  Life can change so quickly without warning.  We send love and prayers to our dear friend Lyn, and hope she will be sustained through God’s love and her precious memories of Michael J. Morgan.

With love,

Steve & Judy Sparks
