I am so sorry for the loss of your son, Sue and Felix. I was researching y'all and found that your son had passed away. I cannot imagine the sorrow you must be experiencing. May God give you peace and give you comfort.
You probably don't remember me, but I will never forget meeting the two of you back in 1969. Sue, you were my stand-in for the tv show, "To Rome with Love." My character name was Pokey.
God's love be with you all at this time.

I met Mikey while I was in high school, through his sister Diana. For a while, I even stayed with their family and got to know him really well. He cracked me up constantly, and was just one of the funniest people I knew! I am in shock that he’s no longer with us, but I’m so glad to have known him. I’ll miss having him around.

- From Minni, with all my prayers and love to the whole Silla family

Mikey, my big brother, my friend, my influence, not a day has gone by that I don’t think of your laugh. That is what I will miss the most…and calling me names. I miss that and I want it back.

Everyday I get a visit from a hummingbird that scares the crap out of me. I can’t help but feel that it is your presence because you loved to scare me in a fun, playful way. We had so much fun growing up together and you always included me, your little annoying sister, in everything. You taught me how to have fun in life and not let the dumb things get in the way of happiness… just to let it go and look for the bright side. Even as we grew into adults, you carried that spirit with you. When life got you down, you still found a way to brighten everyone’s day around you, always putting everyone else before you. That took so much strength, courage, and a heart so big that was taken for granted. You made a difference, you impacted everyone around you. I don’t think I ever told you how much you meant to me and how much I looked up to you. It was an unsaid truth that I hope you knew.

I will always remember how you brought a boring room to life, how the only thing that really pissed you off was when you couldn’t beat a Nintendo game, how you were always down to go anywhere at any time, how you enjoyed picking on all of us (we all loved it by the way), how you never minded cooking something extra just for me because of my pickiness, and how you were just yourself all the time regardless of being judged. But the one thing I will ALWAYS remember is if I was mad or sad, you would punch me in the arm, give me a hug, put your head on mine, and teasingly call me “my sissy” in that silly voice you would do. That was your way of saying I love you.
I love you and miss you more than any words can express.

Mike Was A Good, Funny, Strong, Loyal, Cool And Honest Man, May God Bless His Family At This Most Trying Time...
As We All Know Mike Always Had Fun And Could Always Make You Laugh. He Had A Wonderful And Classic Laugh That Couldn't Be Mistaken And That Always Lifted You Up. What A Great Laugh He Had...
What I Would Want People To Know About Mike Is His Loyalty. No Matter When, What or Where The Party or Get Together Was, Mike Would Be There, He Would Make Sure Everyone Had A Awesome Time And Would Never Come Empty Handed. The Most Loyal Person And Friend I Have Ever Had The Pleasure Of Meeting...
Mike Was A Great Man, And We Will All Miss Him. May God Rest His Soul And May The Heavens Be Filled With His Laugh And His Great Presence Till The End Of Time...

You have always been the fun uncle, the one who likes to make jokes, and pokes everyone around, likes to give everyone stupid nick names like poopy butt, pueky mouth, or even bogey Wilson. I may not have got to spend a lot of time with you but you have always been my favorite uncle and to know that I will never see your face again sucks. I keep saying this is some kind of joke because your a jokester but it’s not, it’s real life and I know your in a better place and I love you so much Uncle Mikey Michael Silla Rest In Peace

Mikey, growing up you where like a brother to me. You always made me laugh harder than I have ever laughed, to this day, nobody has ever made my ribs so sore from laughter. You always had a big heart. You where always kind, strong, and determined. You taught me a lot in all the years growing up with you. Your love of music and eclectic taste gave me a window to a vast variety of music which has stayed with me to this day. I am saddened beyond belief that I’ve lost one of my brothers. I honestly wish I would have been able to keep up with you. Rest In Peace my brother.

I taught for a year at St. Paul's First in North Hollywood. Mike was in the seventh grade class. Hey gave me some of the greatest memories I have of that year. He had a lot of guts and always gave 100%. When Facebook became a thing, I looked him up. I know he had his ups and downs. I pray that God had mercy on him and that I'll see him on then other side.

Hi Mikey. I know you can hear me. Being in California, we always kept in touch. Always talked about the old times when we were growing up. Always talked about alternative, classic punk rock and movies. When, I was going to come to Vegas, we were suppose to hang out. Man, I know your rocking in heaven . You keep smiling and we will one day meet again. Rest In Peace., Michael. Love always, your childhood friend, Sylvia.
