My friends the Goldens, our hearts are with you in this difficult time. Michael's ready smile and eager handshake will always be my memory to hold on to for this young bright soul. So many of us worked with him and shared his growth and were enjoying his journey in life. We know he will always be with you and we all wish the family the very best. So glad Michael was in our lives, though it was a while ago and far too short. Peace to all of you in this time.

Mike, Bridget, Becca & Mandy
Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Michael was an extraordinary young man and will be greatly missed. We had the privilege of seeing him with the boys whenever they were doing stuff together. One of our fondest memories is having the boys over for taco night and them learning to salsa. He was a very sweet young man, always smiling and happy. Our prayers of comfort for you and your family and may he rest in peace. We love you Michael!

WE MET MICHAEL ONE DAY WHEN HE WAS A TEENAGER, RIDING HIS 4-WHEELER DOWN THE ROAD. HE SAW US IN OUR YARD AND DROVE THE 4-WHEELER DOWN OUR LONG DRIVEWAY . HE WANTED TO INTRODUCE HIMSELF TO US. HE EXTENDED HIS HAND FOR A HANDSHAKE AND SHARED A FEW WORDS. MICHAEL WAS A FINE SON AND WAS SO POLITE AND WELL MANNERED. IMMEDIATELY WE KNEW HE HAD SOME GOOD PARENTS WHO TAUGHT HIM WELL. OUR HEARTS ARE BROKEN FOR YOUR FAMILY DURING THIS DIFFICULT AND SAD TIME. MICHAEL IS IN HIS HEAVENLY HOME IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD. LOVE AND PRAYERS, DIANE AND FRANK BIVONA (Julie West’s PARENTS)

To the Golden Family. My prayers and thoughts are with you. I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling. Michael was our neighbor for 3 years along with John and Mike. Within that short period of time we felt like we knew Michael (G) and his dear friends for much longer. They were like family to us. Every time we would see Michael he would always have a smile on his face and something very nice to say. I also received many hugs from Michael. He was a very good hearted young man and would do anything for you. Michael will be truly missed.

I’m so sadden for my friend Ashley, his significant other. I pray you can find signs of his love for you in days on end. I know I was never lucky to meet him but I have always heard so many great things when I did catch up with you about him and you. I’m truly just speechless and I know you had found someone that made you so happy and took away all the past hurt you had and focused on what was to come. I love you and again I wish I could take the pain away and bring him back for you.

Bridget & Mike we can’t even imagine the pain you are going through. You raised an incredible, amazing young man. Michael was such a sweet soul with a great big heart! We were truly blessed that he was part of our family for many years, a son to us, brother to my kids and great best friend to John. There are not enough kind words to describe your beautiful son Michael. Our hearts are broken but we know he’s dancing and making new angelic friends in Heaven! Our prayers and thoughts are with your family. Love, Loretta & Randy Arceneaux 🙏😘💔
