There are so many people who love Mike, and for good reason. It's funny, he and I were very close friends for a few years in college, but most of the memories escape me. I just remember that he made me feel comfortable. Happy. Loved. Appreciated. When I didn't feel confident, he would help me realize my worth.

When I picture his face, I can only see him smiling. He was fun. He always cared about everyone else much more than himself. If I needed someone, I could always send him a message and he would be there. What an amazing person Mike was. I could not come to Mike's viewing, as I want to remember him alive. I never want that smiling image to leave my mind. That comforting face that was always there for me.

To all of those who love Mike, I am so extremely sorry for this terrible loss. Please find comfort in the memories. May Mike rest in peace, and bring so much of his beautiful personality to God in heaven.
