    I hate I met Mikey and your precious family in the way I did, but I feel blessed to have known him nonetheless. He was such a kind soul and could turn any “bad” day we were having around so quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there Monday to hug each and every one of you. Please know that 4 South loves you all and we will miss Mike so much.

    It was a privilege to have met Mike and his family! I enjoyed taking care of him. I would always say “see ya later, but maybe in stores or at Walmart some where, not here” my heart filled with sadness when I heard the news but I know you’re resting peacefully looking over everyone with a smile. Whenever u were my patient on the floor, I made sure no one bothered him because he wanted a nap. A good 2 hour nap may I add lol. He deserved it. I’m so sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for his amazing family and friends. May God Bless you all ! 4 South will definitely miss him, that great smile and sense of humor! I love y’all. Oh, shout out to mom for getting that Cups coffee for me that day! I really appreciated it lol and woke up then! 😘

    My condolences and prayers are with Mike’s family right now. Mike was a great guy who could always bring laughter to any room. We went to Vo-Tech together in high school and took automotive technology. His sense of humor and general personality gave us all a good friend and endless laughs. He will be sorely missed. He is at peace now, and his remembrance and personality will live on forever in all our minds and most importantly our hearts. Forever shine on, ‘Mikis’.
