You will be greatly missed! I still keep waiting for you phone calls! Please just watch over us especially Pops and Elias! They are having a hard time! I’m thankful for the time spent with you even if it was in rehab, the hospital or even dr visits! I have great memories! Some of the stuff you would talk about puts a smile on my face! You are no longer in pain or suffering! We love you! Still hear your voice and will hold on to that for as long as I can!

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

Wow! Can't believe you're gone, I still remember going to check on you and Chrispy. I would ask if you needed anything and you would say no, but will you go to Walmart for me and get a sub sandwich, crackers with no salt had to make sure No Salt and treats for Crispy. I would get back and cut a slice of sub and switch out your water bottle for a cold one. I would tease you that I was going to take Chrispy home with me and you would say oh no, shes my baby. I have her now, but I didnt want her this way. I remember when we went to a doctor appointment and on the way home we kinda got lost, we laughed about it all the way home. Rest in Peace Mikey.
