  4. It breaks my heart to know that Mike is no longer here on this earth with us. I will certainly miss him, his singing and everything about him. The last time I talked to him was when my daughter was in the hospital. He was concerned for her. Now he is among the greats that have gone on before him. He is no longer sick or limited . He is well and happy. Though I will miss him here, I know he is in good hands there.

    mike I found out way to late to make it to you. I never got a chance to tell you that you were like a dad to me. and I know I was like a son to you..i remember the time you told me I was,i believed it. we shared a lot of dark secrets and even a few bottles of wild irish rose in our time together. I know you were not a man that said I love you a lot and rightfully so,the world was a bastard to you because of the way you choose to hide the pain. I never judged you and always embraced our time together. my heart hurts because ill never get to grace your presence on earth again,never get to hear that voice of a songbird you possessed. I don’t think you ever knew how great you really were. I know the angels in heaven are sounding better this year. you gave me the gift of music in its purest form, and I am forever greatful to you for the words you told me and things you showed me. look over us from up there and see that you keep us a spot in the front row of the stage so we can be close. I pray for wade,shanna,brannon and tammy ,I know this is a pain that is to much for little words like these. god please see that our eyes are on you and your will,for we cant make it without you. I love you mike, Rest in Peace Michael

    July 4th was yesterday and all I did was remember you. Today I was trying to play a dvd in my computer but it wouldn’t play, but instead your voice came through the computer and I realized that it was a song you wrote playing out of nowhere. I spent tonight reminiscing about memories we had. You are so truly talented, unlike so many who made it in the music industry. You got to go home, and all of the pain of this world is over for you now. I love you and I always will. I can’t wait to meet you again one day.

  11. Happy Fathers Day Oh I just ❤️Ya miss you very much🦅

  12. Happy Birthday Dad I miss & Love you R.I.P😔
