    Condolences to all who knew and loved Michael. I hope those who loved him will find comfort in the difficult days to come knowing he no longer feel the pain of his last days.

    Pat and Family,
    Mike was one of a kind! He made sure that you saw him if he was nearby and always had some humor to share. Never did I see him without a smile.
    At Jo Byrns, he worked right along with you Pat in whatever task was needing to be done.
    His passing will leave a big void but it will soon be filled with all the memories shared with you at visitation.
    i hope you understand why I cannot be there in a crowd but I will be in spirit,

    Mike was there for me when my blood sugar bottomed out and i was missing in action at work and Michele called him and asked him to come over and check on me and he found me passed out and was a wonderful man that was there and after that he always checked on me when i was across the street at Mike and Michele’s house . I have moved to Florida and lost the love of my life but i am still fighting Diabetes and seizures thanks to him and Michele and Cindy . God is good and when he is ready for us we go where ever is beyond this earthly world , with no pain and suffering .

    Faye, I just learned today of Mike’s death. So sorry to hear that. Always remember the fun visit to see us in Ft. Worth, and then Mike was always so friendly at church when we were visiting back at Adairville Baptist. Tried to call today, but the number I had did not work. Much love and sympathy, David & Margaret
