I have so many happy memories of my visits to South Dakota and hanging out with the Schmitts. My fondest memories are the neighborhood games of baseball and kick the can. I always remember how Mike had a smile on his face and a great laugh. He always treated me so well. Rest In Peace, Mike May perpetual light shine upon you! Love your cousin, Cheryl
