Mike was a true standup guy. He was someone I could always count on and he rescued me many times in tough business situations. He was a client of mine for many years, but he was also a good friend. I'll never forget him.

Much Love to his family,

I have to admit, I didn’t want to write on here because it’s hard to believe you are not here anymore. But as respect to you. I feel even more compelled too. So here it is. To my beautiful god father. I love you unconditionally. From the day we first met at JC Penney’s as you talked about furniture while I listened for whatever reason lol, I knew you would mean so much to me becoming the man I am today. The amount of knowledge you shared with me, I could never live without. Your strength and intelligence as a man. A black man. It was beyond words to describe. Pop. You are my icon. Even though we are not of blood, we are of mind body and spirit. As you may not be here in the physical sense. I know spiritually and mentally you are just beginning your journey of eternal life. The pain has subdued. But the wisdom you will bring into our life as you learn more from our lord and savior. I can not do anything but give a tip of my hat to you. Pop I love you. I love you for allowing me a chapter of your life. I love you for giving me a reason to become more of a man than I ever thought. And I love you for the legacy you instilled in all of us. Today I may shed tears. But my heart has never been filled with so much joy knowing some day, we will speak again. Rest well pop. Shalom
Your god son. Ryan C. Little

Mike, I love you so much. You were a true “Big Brother” for me: when you often let me “style your hair” as I practiced my beauty school ambitions at 6 years old to when you arranged for me to be hired at Helene Curtis as I ran from a crazy marriage to our many times praying and sharing God’s precious Word over these more recent years.

My heart is broken yet I rejoice because you are present with our LORD! Shalom my dear brother. Love Rhonda

I only knew Michael for a short time but he left a lasting imprint on my heart. I could tell from the first time we met that he was a man of integrity, principle and faith. He had a kind heart and beautiful soul. I'm privileged to have known him.

Pops, not a day will go by that I will not think of you and the wonderful father and daughter relationship we had. The life lessons, wisdom and our daily talks meant more to me than you will have ever known. I promise to live every day with the tools you have given me. I promise you will be smiling down on me as I make you proud. Forever your blondie
Your loving daughter
Tina

Michael will always hold a special part of my heart. Without hesitation he was truly my friend, brother and a mentor to me. His spirit was kind, thoughtful and compassionate. He found sunshine on every rainy day.
Never to be forgotten.

My brother in-law Mike will be greatly missed for he was a kind, generous and caring person who always showed warmth and affection to his family and friends. He was a loving husband to my sister and a proud father and grandfather. Mike was very knowledgeable and a good conversationalist, he always enjoyed the finer things in life and he cultivated a great sense of style and taste. Above all Mike was a spiritual person with a deep faith in God. I'm sad that I won't see Mike again but I will always look fondly upon and cherish the memories of this great man who I was fortunate to have known.
