Michael Bronkhorst

Michael Bronkhorst, of Holbrook, passed away on May 6, 2020 at home surrounded by his loving family.

Dear Ann
i am so sorry for your loss. When i read of Mikes passing i was stunned as i didn't know he was ill I am grateful for the time the 4 of us spent together. My thoughts went right to the weekends away and our lunches out. They brought a smile to my face We did have some laughs and this will always be how I will remember Mike.
He was a funny man and Al and I always looked forward to seeing you both He will certainly be missed but i would bet they are all together setting up the K of C in heaven
Again my sincere sympathy

Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Mike in elementary school and he was always so pleasant to be around. A truly NICE person! Our class was very close, and was a big supporter of making that happen. I will miss him at our reunions, although I don't get back for all of them anymore. I pray that you will remember all of the wonderful things you love about him and celebrate that joy frequently. I lost my Bill almost 13 years ago, and although it is hard, I have learned to think of all the ways God blessed me with him over the years. I am glad to hear you have grandkids -- they help a lot. I pray you can feel God's peace over time.
