What a shame, a kind and genital soul. A friend and great help . I failed to reconnect with Mike after a minor disagreement and that will prove to be a great disappointment that I will hold against myself and although minor as it was it kept us apart until tomorrow when I will be with him for a last time..Ihope by then I have an appropriate apology to a fairly new friend that I will never forget.
As I pray for Gods forgiveness for Mike I will also pray for the souls of those who failed him . I hope he hears me.Rest in Gods sweet peace dear Mike.

Mike was always so quiet and polite. I always tried teasing him when we were younger. He was so sweet and kind. I will miss him greatly. I pray you have many conversations with your mom and uncle my dear cousin. Love you.

Mike always had a smile for me and no matter what he was going through that day, somehow i knew my trouble would be ok. He was always so calm and relaxed and i really admired that about him. Something i really wanted. Always asked me how i was doing. RIP my friend
