    Sorry to hear this as he was my big brother growing up. From him taking me to school in first grade when I cried the whole year and never once got mad at me. Taught me how to clean a squirrel even tho I wouldn’t eat them and several other tasks. He was a good guy and will be missed. To the family I am sorry for your loss. Call me if you need anything.

    Very sorry for your loss. I worked with Mike in Balad, Iraq and still kept in touch with him online. I enjoyed working with Mike since we had a lot in common including having 2 sons back home in which he loved and talked about often.

    It breaks my heart to know that our Little Mike is no longer with us, but I know he is finally at peace and no longer in pain. Little Mike was a good man and he loved his family with all his heart. Little Mike will always hold a special place in my heart. Uncle Mike, Dee, Corey, Kristi, and Cameron may the Lord grant you peace and comfort in knowing that He will be watching over you until we see him again in Heaven.

    Prayers for your family.

  • Tiffany Brock Posted September 2, 2016 7:13 AM

    As i get ready to say goodbye to my first love, i remember all our good times, the best 2 things for both of us were the births of our boys, Corey & Cameron. You can never really be prepared for something like this to happen so young, but we are shown it happens everyday. I know that you are finally at peace and no more suffering, no more pain and no more sorrow. Today we will tell you goodbye but only for a short time, because we will meet again. I know you and Donna and Lena are having a wonderful reunion. Please watch over our boys and their families from up above and i will watch from here. Let your soul sleep peacefully now Mica, i always love you.
