I worked with Mike in the Marcellus Shale. I remember he brought a positive attitude and performed his work very well. I was hoping to cross path again, Mike. Our prayers go out to you and your family.

To the Vanston family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
