To Mike, this has been a rough year since your mom Theresa passed, then your Uncle Mike, and now you. My heart feels so incredibly saddened. My brother told me yesterday about what happened and all I could think was how I wish I reached out to talk with you more often since I last saw you about a year ago. You were a great, helpful and kind guy and I am grateful for your friendship. Thank you for being a part of my life. Regardless of only knowing you for a short time since we first talked on Facebook and friending each other from our friends' comments. Then to find out your mom was my cousin's best friend, I always loved to see her whenever Charlotte came to town. Your mom and you were always welcomed company with my family. I'm sorry I did not keep in touch more often. To your loved ones, my heart goes out to every single one of you and I truly wish I could give you the comfort and peace you all need. Much love to all. Mike, Give your mom a hug for me up there. You both were a treasure and truly appreciated. Rest peacefully, my friend.
