Diane, Annie and Family, We have many happy and fond memories of Mikey, Annie, Jourdan and Teddy in their early years that are filled with many smiles, laughter and happy thoughts. Mikey was a kid who always laughed and had a constant smile on his face. The kids always had joy in playing together and the time spent growing up. We are so sorry for your loss and send many hugs and prayers.

All our love, Kelly, David, Jourdan and Teddy Cole-Chirio

When we were younger, Mikey was one of the older cousins; sent to torture us yougins (especially the girls). I remember his laughter and his speed as he and the other boys ran away from my Uncles after we would tell on them. As we got older, I remember the smile and comforting voice. The man who would sit with me and talk about anything in the world. The kindness he would show to make sure those around him were good. We would joke about the old days and laugh together in Aunt Jackie’s basement. Your laughter and smile is what I will remember the most. Love you always, Cousin Mikey. ❤️

I have struggled the last few days thinking of what to write, how to put into words what I am feeling about this. It bothers me that we all so quickly grew apart, we cousins were all best friends for so long. I am sorry that I did not keep up with you more than I did. The youngest of us is not supposed to go first. You, Grandpa and I should still be spending time together as the boys club in the family full of girls and it is not fair that I don’t get to see either of you again. I miss all of the days that we spent together swimming in the pool at Grandma and Grandpa Pryer’s house. I can still feel how cold it was when we came inside wet, Grandma and Grandpa must have kept the AC at 60. I can see those big eyes on your face as you stood there shivering with the rest of us waiting for the towel that we no doubt forgot to take outside with us or to Grandpa’s dismay threw in the pool. I choose to remember you that way. That face, that voice and that smile.
To Aunt Diane, Uncle Randy, Uncle Mike and Annie. My heart breaks for all of you. I can’t imagine how hard this is but I will hug my family a little tighter each night and keep you and Mikey in my thoughts.

Mikey was my bonus little brother (aka step brother) He was funny, silly, and had a kind heart. Some of my favorite memories with Mikey are catching tadpoles and fish in the creek by the house you all lived at when we first met. Watching scary movies and making you play barbies with me. Running around Spring Arbor like we owned that part of town, and going to the party store on the corner for penny candy. All the late night and hot summer day swimming. So many fun pool memories. Camping trips. Playing endless games of Yahtzee and all the great memories of you and Boo. Even though we have parted ways for many years now, you will always have a special place in my heart. I love you Mikey, rest easy now.

I remember when I earned my learns permit.. Dad would let us take Kathy's Buick Park Avenue out to get him a Pepsi 2 liter.. We took a detour and got some junior bacon burgers at Wendy's. Just kicked back in the car and fead the sea gulls fries.. If I live the next 60 minutes, or 60 years you and yours will have a piece of my heart. I love you and yours.. God bless bro, I'll see you on the other side.

I have a lot of great memories with Mike, going to Kwings hockey games, disc golf, fishing, and shooting hoops in his drive way.. One of my best memories about Fitz is that he was the first friend in the door to visit me in the hospital, he had genuine care for his friends and family, and a great sense of humor.

I have so many beautiful memories of growing up with my cousins. We were all each other’s first friends. When little Mikey came along we were all in love. His big beautiful eyes and sweet little voice won all our hearts. I remember Grandpa always doting on Mike, always taking him on bike rides. Grandpa probably loved getting another grandson after the string of girls that followed Jason. Everyone loved Mikey. I know he has long grown out of the name Mikey but it is how I still and will always remember him. I see him as he is in this picture in his turtle costume on Halloween at my Mom’s. My heart is breaking for us all to lose him so young. Diane, Randy and Annie I love you all so much and I am so sorry for your loss.
