My precious nephew,
Michael Gene. Your named after your Uncle, Michael Gene Garrett. He loved you so much, it made him proud when you were named after him.
We have always loved having you stay with us. Especially more recently with Gina and I in our new home, until you moved out in March of 2019.
Gina and I enjoyed our heart to heart talks with you on those late night drives picking you up from work.
I'll treasure them always. Seeing you with your children, and now only seeing you through them. But so thankful a part of you is in them to comfort us now.
You'll always hold a place in our hearts.
Prayers for Carol, Valerie, JR and family.
Love, Aunt Linda and cousin, Gina.💕💕

Michael and I have been together since November 2018 we have lots of love for each other. I was with him at his best and at his worst. He was so loving and caring to everyone he encountered. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.. He loved his children so much I caught him numerous times crying cause he wish he could hold them. When my youngest would see he was getting emotional she would just hug him and hold him tight. We made lots of memories from going to watch my daughter cheer at competitions to cheering at her high school games. He helped me with the kids I watch and was always great with them, We became teachers to all the kids in March thru the end of school and I think he enjoyed helping me with that thanks to corona. My nephew asked me today who is gonna make my peanut butter and jelly sandwich in the early mornings. He is so gonna miss uncle Mike he says. We had great fun just sitting at home also ..we would sit around the table playing cards mostly oh hell he loved it. We had big bomb fires in the back yard all summer long, I called him my little fire master(lol). He loved to be in his sweatshirts or his jacket even when it was 100degrees outside. We had date nights where we would just get out of the house and go have fun. We went bowling, went to the casino in Anderson where he loved cause he always came out with more money then he went in with and he loved reminding me of that.. He was a jokester also.. He was always up all night cause he wanted to watch over us and make sure We were all ok at night while We slept. We are all gonna miss him terribly. We love you Michael gene Randolph you will always be in our hearts. I'll meet u again someday up in heaven until then just watch over us and lead us in the right directions. RIP MY LOVE I love you

Michael I can't believe you are gone. You will always be in my heart. I loved you like a son. So many memories when you lived with us. Vacation's we enjoyed together the trip to Gatlinburg. You stayed up all night playing pool. Camping trips listening to you and Danni argue like brother and sister. Watching you play basketball when you went to Union. Oh don't forget teaching you how to drive in my Toyota (was a little scary). Always enjoyed watching you compete in Bible challenge you could quote so many scriptures. I'm so glad you were such a big part of our family. You always came up and hugged me and said I love you Aunt Cindy. Made a lot of memories with you and the children Last year . The pumpkin patch, staying up watching back to back movies. Taking the kids to the park. Just watching them curl up on the couch and falling asleep with all 3 of them on top of you. They loved spending time with you. I know you are watching over them. I hope you know Aunt Cindy loves you Mikey doodle 💞

Our sympathy goes out to Michael's family. Such a great loss for all who knew and loved Michael. Although I wasn't his biological Aunt, he always referred to me as "Aunt Marsha". Jeff and I remember as a child, picking him and his brother and sister up on Mt. Olive FWB Church van and taking them to church. Many fond memories we will hold in our hearts of Michael, we will see him in the faces of his precious children now to help us along with this great loss. And to forever remember our sweet Michael Gene Randolph.
Love, Aunt Marsha & Uncle Jeff 💕💕

Michael and I spent 4 years together. In those years we raised 4 wonderful children. Michael and I done everything together. We watched the kids enjoy being in sports, going on adventures, and overall we loved watching them grow as individuals. Thank you for giving me the chance to help raise your 3 kids with you and to love them like my own. I also want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to become a mother to our beautiful babygirl. We all love and miss you so much.
