My heart still freezes and skips a beat when I think of you. You were my dear friend! The grieving process has not ended for me and probably never will! You were such a gentle and kind man! A man of peace! Words simply cannot adequately express how deeply hurt I still am at not being able to call you and just talk to you about life! RIP my friend!

Missing my brother today more than ever, with the family reunion fast approaching I can't help but remember the times that I spent with my favorite brother. Oh how I miss your presence you made me laugh and cry and I would give anything to have you back with us. It has been 5 years and it seems like just yesterday when I saw you last watching the Finals in 2006. Love and Miss you Always and Forever. Your sister

I will always cherish the opportunity I've had to know Mike . He certaily epitomized the American dream and goodness in an individual. His upbeat personality helped me through many challenging situations and I'll forever be greatful for his presence. I know his family and friends will greive his departure from this life but I think we can all be assured that he is in the best of care. Whenever I think of boiled crawfish , fish frys, home-made sausage and etoufee, I know I'll feel Mike's presence near because those are a few favorites he spoke of often.

Kind, Reserved, Cheerful, Helpful and Jovial, are just a few distinct words that come to mind about Mike. He was a very reserved and at the same time welcoming man. You will always be missed homie.
And may the almighty God provide the strength and comfort to your family at this sorrowful time.

I struggle when I scan this earth for a physical presence of my friend. I realize that you are still with me. In looking outward, I am looking in the wrong direction. It is when I look inward to my soul, that I find that you are still with me.
Your honest; kind hearted; warm selfless spirit has left permanent impressions upon those fortunate enough to have been your friend. My heart goes out to friends & family. When you feel Michael has left you, you will find that he will never leave.
Look inward & you will find Michael closer than ever.
