Mike, I’ve known you and your family for my entire life. You will be missed by all, especially your sisters. RIP my friend, please give your mom a hug for me. Until we meet again, know you made a difference.

Mike and I were close friends during our teenage years. Mike and I constantly were spending time together whether it be cars or camping or just hanging out together or cruising in the cars. I didn’t get to see Mike as much in later years with me getting married, starting a family and moving away to work and go to college. But I often got to catch up with Mike when I was back in Jackson. The last time I got to visit with him was nearly 4 years ago. And of course I wish I had gotten back to Jackson from my now home in Florida to see Mike again.
Mike .... I have and will miss you. I will miss the laughs we always shared together. And I will cherish the many memories we shared. One of the many was the time you hit a golf ball into tall rough and we were tromping around in there trying to locate the ball and got into an underground bee nest. We were running for dear life but I will never forget seeing you back out in the open running full out with a bee right behind your head.
I know you are able to run and jump again if you choose now that you have shed the worn out Earthly body. I will cherish that selfie picture that we took the last time we visited. It was a picture of two good old friends.
