Dear Visitor:

There have been so many people who have supported us since Mike died. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have sent us cards, gifts and prayers. Your support has meant so much and we appreciate that you continue to honor Mike in various ways.

Please take a moment to visit the "PHOTOS" section of the web site. I’ve shared some family photos—some of which were taken within weeks of his death. Mike was so much more than the police officer many people know. He was a wonderful husband, a perfect father, and loyal friend.

For those of you who knew Mike, you know what a special person he was. Unfailingly funny, he knew how to have a good time. And he always knew how to make us laugh with his goofy dances like the pencil sharpener and the Gumby. One of the things I still miss is his quick wit and his ability to make me feel like everything was going to be okay. He was my protector and he never liked to see me or anyone else in his family hurting.

And he was such a great dad. It breaks my heart to know that Kendall will grow up without her daddy. He only had a year and a half with Kendall but she was certainly his pride and joy. She’s reached so many milestones since his death and she continues to do new things every day.

Please always remember Mike and the sacrifice he made.


Denise L. Wise

Widow, Michael H. Wise, II (EOW 6/5/04)
