  • Michael Davis was a friend of mine and we worked together. I am praying for his wife and three year old daughter. Mike was a very responsable person and the best I can figure is that he got confused in the dark and somehow ended going the wrong direction. I had ridden with him in that car just a few days ago and I am still in shock mode. We are glad thay the other man was not injured. Please pray for Michaels family.
