I can not find the words to tell you how I feel for you guys! I just met Mike when he came down to Fort Morgan and was very likable young man and very open. I know you will miss him and we will too! God bless Mike and all of you!

My deepest sympathy, so much love and prayers to you. Mikey was so engaging, funny and battled a difficult battle. He knew that Linda loved him, always, and I'm sure that gave him some peace when the battle was difficult. He can now be an angel helping others who are fighting the same foe of addiction. Rest in peace, Mikey, you will be missed by many.

Mikey touched all of our hearts with his beautiful smile and amazing wit. He will be sadly missed by all of us and we can only wish we had spent more time together as a family and didnt live so very far apart. We are here for support with open arms anytime, anyday, forever. Our thoughts and hearts are with you today, tomorrow and always xxoo Gayle, Ian , Josh & Sarah

Linda and Duke - Our deepest sympathies are with you and your family. Mikey did indeed have a true warrior spirit, always pushing to overcome whatever problems might come his way. His smile and laugh, his kindness when you least expected it, and his quick wit will always be remembered.
