Susan and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I wish I was there to offer some sort of help for you and your family to relieve you all of your grief, even if, just a hug. Although I am not there in person, I am there in spirit and here is a long distance hug for you all. My wish for you and your family, Pearl, Al, Karen, Hope, Dee Dee and the rest of the family, is that each one of your sadness is replaced with only the happy memories that each of you shared throughout his short life. Love you all.

Susan, with great sadness I heard of this and my heart just aches for you. I cannot imagine what you are going through and as a mother, it wrenches me to think of the emotions and the depth of it. I lift you and your family, and your Mom and Dad up in prayer that He keep His loving arms around all of you and walk with you in the days to come. That He infuse you with His strength and grace and with the knowledge that one day you will see Mike again and in a much better place than this. Warm hugs and tender thoughts...

Mike was abfraternity brother of mine. He was as loyal a friend as I could ever ask for. He always had my back, and never gave up on me through hard times, even when I felt like giving up on myself.

I recall is going to Cornelius one weekend to visit a friend, and my car had been acting funny so I was not sure if I was going to be able to make it. I called Mike and told him, and he just came and picked me up on his way from Atlanta. He would always go the extra mile to help you out. I’ll never forget that. I love you Mike, RIP brother.
