I can’t believe your gone, I sit back now and think of all my memories of our time together in the years past. A lot of good times, lots of laughs. I know your in a better place now, in Heaven. I’m going to miss you! Love, Cricket

A member of one the sweetest families I’ve ever met. I’ll miss our times of playing pool, fishing and just sitting on the porch. He did have his challenges but he still remained confident and didn’t let that hinder him. Prayers for the family and if I can do anything, please let me know. I know Mikey would for me.

Buddy and Louise I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet son Mike. I didn't know Mike very well but I met him when the seniors at our church went to the beach last year. He was so kind and considerate. He loved to eat and I guess that's what we had in common. He really enjoyed his meal at Longhorn and so did I. But mostly I really enjoyed his company. Rest in peace Mike for you are in the hands of your loving Savior Jesus Christ.
