April and family - I am so sorry for your loss. My husband Scott worked with Mike on several jobs throughout the years. Recently, Scott suffered a traumatic brain injury and Mike was very supportive to Scott's brother Lance(of FreeLance Electric), providing information about his experience at Kessler and what to expect when Scott comes home. I can't express how comforting it was to hear Mike's first hand account and I am forever grateful for it. Your family is in our prayers.

Dearest Bortone Ladies, Words cannot describe the deep pain my heart feels for the 3 of you. Mr. Bortone was an incredible man with an inspiring spirit. Although I only met him a handful of times he was the type of person who instantly made you feel like family. A piece of him will forever live on in my heart. But most importantly, I see so much of him in each one of you (Lisa, April, & Marissa). Thank you for introducing me to such a beautiful person. I love you all so very much, Jo
