Not sure what to say?

We are so very sorry to hear of Mikes passing. We will keep all the family in our thoughts and prayers.

Heck of a good fella. He will be missed.

God Bless all the Brown family on the loss of Michael.

Condolences to the family of Mike. Mike, Kim, and Davey, were my neighbors growing up, and there's not enough space to tell you of the good times, and fond memories I had with all of them. I graduated with Mike in 1973, but he was more than just a classmate. He was just such a genuine nice guy, and a good friend! R.I.P. neighbor.

I will miss my cousin and live long friend. Rest In Peace.
