Not sure what to say?

I am only now reading of Mike's death. I am terribly sorry for you loss. I remember him so clearly from the BSM when I was a student there from 1988 to 1992. I know he ministered to many students over many years.

Dianne -
I should have written this email some time ago, upon learning of Mike's passing; however, I just found this tribute website after hearing of it indirectly from Jean Ann. I have read many of the tributes left thanking you and Mike for your gifts in the lives of so many. I am guessing you have no idea of the influence you had on my life as a young girl in Kerens, Texas. My love for Jean Ann and her familiy was established in childhood - her kindness and genuine...

Although it has been over two years since Mike passed away, when I learned of it today and read the messages here, I greeved as if it happened only days ago. As leader of the Aggie BSU, Mike was a great influence in my life when I was a student back in the 80's. I have so many fond memories of Mike and the BSU.... the praise, worship, and message of noon Bible studies; playing 42 and ping pong; helping international students from Taiwan learn English better; and Mexico mission trips.

I just found out about this today. I was at the BSU back in the early 90's. There was a problem with my transcripts and I missed a semester of school but had already move to College Station. I showed up one day at the BSU and met Mike. He didn't care where I was attending, he just welcomed in. I will never forget how the BSU helped me thru a tough time.

Thanks, Mike. I will see you one the other side.

Dear Diane & Family,
I recently learned of Mike's passing. A church/Aggie BSM group came to my hometown to help us clean up after Hurricane Ike stormsurge; also, I am now receiving again the BSM newsletter. I am very sorry for your loss and for the world's loss.
I am grateful that I had the opportunity to visit various parts of this website. I will be sharing it with my family.
I was active in the BSU when Ron Wells was there, and I remember when Mike came to lead...

I was already an Air Force Veteran and the Aggie BSU was the third one I had participated in when I met Mike. During the four years (1983-1987) I was there, like many others, Mike became a spiritual big brother to me. I discovered the news of his passing almost two years later and I grieve as if it just happened. The bolt of cloth Mike was cut from is rare and hard to find these days. I am using this website to introduce him to my family. They say my admiration and respect for anyone man...

Diane, this past summer I learned of Mikes passing through David George. I appologize for not knowing sooner because I certainly would have been at the service. I first met Mike when I was a student at UTA and we ended going to Tarrant Road together and playing softball and just really becoming friends. I remember when Mike joined Tarrant Road Baptist Church and how happy I was that I would get to spend more time with him. Mike influenced my life in so many ways, especially his tenderness...

I only learned of Mike's passing yesterday at the BGCT convention in Fort Worth. Mike affected my life profoundly as the BSU director at Tarleton when I was a student there from 1975-1979. Through his tutoring and guidance, I became a Baptist Journeyman to the Philippines, and grew tremendously in my walk with Christ. I know there are many he impacted with his life. My prayers and thoughts are with you, Diane, as you confront the passing of a year. May God bless you all, and may Mike's...

Two old Tarleton Texans will miss you Mike!

Precious Diane,
My heart is sad to hear that you and your sons lost Mike. In the memorial service, your son, Matt spoke very much like I remember Mike. He was winsome and authentic. You and Mike were the most steady and consistant Christians I had ever met in 1975 at Tarleton State University. Even though I was the Pres. of the FCA on campus, much of my direction and strength came from Mikes influence and friendship. How could I ever forget getting a tear when you would sing...
