Mike Barrett memorial

Long time friend of many, enemy of no one.  Mike Barrett always had something nice to say about people.  One thing is for sure,  he always said a lot about a lot of things.  You could ask Mike the time , not only would he give you the time, he would tell the brand of watch, how the watch was made and where the workings came from.  That's what we loved about Mike.  His stories about  the old (teenage years) South Minneapolis neighborhood and the items in the trunk of his car were crazy funny.  Please help his high school sweetheart and life long wife and best friend, Skeeter, through these sad times with a huge memorial donation.  We all will miss his humor and great (long) story telling.  Your funds will help Skeeter get life back to some normalcy after the grief subsides a bit.  Every penny we raise will go to Skeeter.  Please share this message with all who you think will help.  A little background information about me to be transparent for GoFundMe, which I agree with to follow.  I am a 25 year friend of Mike and Skeeter.  I live in Burnsville and they were my neighbor for the years they lived on Aspen Drive.   All of the funds raised will used to pay for final expenses and on going bills that there are little immediate funds for.  The money will be used for to help with everyday living since unfortunately there was no life insurance.  the funds are coming to me which I will personal distribute to Skeeter.  All the funds will be accounted for by submitting ledger statements to both Lon Berg (another 25 year friend) and to Skeeter (Alana) Barrett.  Thank you-
