I believe most people knew him as Mike or at least I did. I met him at Mel's on Old Lenoir Road in Hickory. He was a friend from day one. I loved him and will greatly miss him. He was a ray of sunshine when you saw him...a big smile on his face and he was always fine. I never knew Mike to complain. You knew at times he had to be in pain but he never showed it. He was hard working and such a good person. He was always kind and had a gentle heart. Bless you Mike. You had many friends and you will certainly be missed. I hope they make banana pudding heaven...I doubt it because you won't need it there but wish I could have made you at least one more. Love, Stephanie

A kinder, gentler man you will never meet. A friend to all who met him. May God bring comfort and peace to his family.

No matter how bad he felt, he always had a smile and a word of encouragement for everyone else. He made you feel like the prettiest girl that walked into the store. If I was having a bad day, it was forgotten about by the time I left. He will be missed. Rest In Peace Mike....
