There are so many memories of Mikey but I think the one that makes me laugh the most is me and Mickey begging him too take us too school and give us a ride home so we didn’t have to ride the icky bus and ya know what, he always said yes bc that’s who he was. There aren’t and will never be another Mikey Harper. Oh can’t forget the swing set in your back yard or getting sprayed with the water hose. So many years I’ve known you and your family that we are family and you will always be in my heart and remembered. Til we meet again.

Mikey, my life will forever be changed without you. Looking at your picture is so hard. How I could have just one more day with you. You did have a heart of gold despite any adversities you may have faced in your life. I will carry your love and our memories with me in my heart forever. Always your baby sister, Missy ❤
