Mike you are the Best Big Brother a little sister can have. You gave my children and I a home when we had none. You were always there. I never heard a discouraging word from you. You were always positive, always looking for an answer to find a way to all problems that came your way. I looked up to you.
May you find peace and rest. I will miss you.

I heard a lot of stories about you growing up , how you like football, the Incredible Hulk, and how sweet you were from Grandma. Also, how heroic and strong you were, and etc. I know I thanked you for all you did then, and you would say, "its ok", or "no problem, no problem". I just wanted to thank you again and if you go see Memaw and Papal on Sundays up there let them know I said hello and I love them.
Thank you Uncle Mike you are loved and you were very appreciated.
I love you.

Dear Uncle Mike,
The last time I seen you, you and Shawn came up to pick up your tractor up here at the Ponderosa. You seemed really happy and in a hurry as usual. I told you that you could come up here some Sunday if you wanted to since you enjoyed it out here and sit, walk around, or whatever. I think you thought it would be a bother to me as you always worried about bothering people; you were never a bother, but you were a blessing. You never came up here after that, but that is ok.
Thank you for coming up to see my Grandparents and I when they were alive. Thank you for bringing Cheese puffs for us. I remember when I was taking care of Grandma you told me to be sure to push the cheese puffs this week so you could bring us different treats next week. Well, when I told Grandma that, we ate cheese puffs for breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner. We held our bellies with our hands being so full of cheese puffs. Thank you for the Reese cups, nutter butter cookies, and for making my eyes light up when you walked through the door with your cooler packed, and leaving me a few Mountain Dews to drink for the week. You always looked so big, mean, and scary but you were oh so sweet.
Thank you for the memories of you and Grandpa sitting under shade trees and smoking cigars in the summer with your goofy laughs, and thank you for cutting logs, and bringing Grandpa music cds. He would play those cds mostly on Sunday evenings and nights after you would leave until about 4:00am in the morning; either the cd would get restarted or the cd didn't come back on which would mean Papal was asleep. We listened to Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey, Bobby Vinton, the Hit parade hits, and Hank Williams Sr. and etc. the most I think.

So very blessed to have known you. The memories and laughs are many. I know the Hershey bars you kept in the freezer and jar of peanut butter for me to make "Reese cups" when I came were the greatest. Can't thank enough for that. My sister Teresa, Tara and Sean had the best. I know you will always be looking over them. You've definitely touched each and every one of us in a way that we can't ever forget. Fly high Mike til we meet again!

Mike was the kindest open gentleman I knew. I have been his brother-in-law for 32 years and was serving in the military when I met him. When Gail and I made it home on leave, he would take me down to "his" room in the basement on Bowchester. I would always end up with collectible KY Wildcat limited edition coke bottles. He would give you the shirt off his back. I will always have fond memories of him and after visiting Louisville last week, wish I was there again this week. Rest in Peace, Mike, obviously you are with God!
