My sympathies go to all of Mike's family and friends at his passing. He was a wonderful man. Mike was my chemo pal at the Cancer Center. We were on the same chemo schedule and saw each other almost every Tuesday. He was my rock during it all and I will be forever grateful. He is at peace. Karen B

To the Ahalt Family:

I wish to extend my deepest thoughts and prayers to your family on the passing of Chip. He fought a courageous battle. He is free of pain at last. I will miss seeing him either working in the fields or driving by in his truck and/or on his machinery.

My home borders the Ahalt farm. In my 46 years of being a neighbor to your family, I cannot express my gratitude for your many acts of kindness and your everlasting thoughtfulness shown to me throughout these years. My humble and sincere thanks to each and everyone of you. God Bless-

My deepest sympathy to the family. Mike was an awesome guy whom i think very highly of. From my first visit a potential customer also became a freind. Ill alway have memories of his humble smile and how is face would light up when we would go look at the newest 2 yr olds to hit the milking string.

My deepest sympathy on Mike's early calling to his heavenly home. I was his high school class mate. Mike was greatly admired and loved by many he touched.
