Family

Know that others share in your loss and that we are praying for you. Gone too soon such a fine young man who was doing everything right. He now lives above in his own forest , where he plays music for man and animals (I see he loves dogs), eternal life is his. When you feel that slight wind on your shoulder or maybe the sun with a special twinkle that will be Michael letting you know he is there! While the tears may fall in the night know that joy will arrive in the morning.

A citizen of Richmond who read a tragic story about a wonderful young man, Michael Raymond Bailey Jr. Godspeed young man!
Sincerely

Joyce, my son Scott and Michael were friends in grade school (Powhatan). They met up once at the campground and they couldn't believe that the other one was there. They had a great time playing that weekend. Michael was a sweet kid. We are so saddened by this tragedy. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
