Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I remember mornings where Mike would bring my grandmother coffee & always made sure to bring me a jelly donut. Because of him I love jelly donuts & coffee light & sweet. I will forever remember Mike, he taught me how to ride a bike & tie my shoes. He was my mothers godfather & like a uncle to me. Forever in my heart. R.I.P. Mike.

I met Mike 7 years ago where I used to work at. From then on, he treated me like the favorite child he never had. He cared for me like his own blood. He's that one true friend who will open his door for you at 3am and who will drop anything to lend you a hand in a heartbeat. His kindness and generosity was consistent, and most definitely one of the coolest people I've ever met. He's touched so many lives and so many hearts. I am truly grateful to have known you and I will miss you greatly. You're a real trooper. Rest in peace, Mikey. ??
