I will always remember you and your great nature and expertise as a shipmate,sailor,,man and friend. I sure wish I could’ve made it by to sip a cold one and bbq with you. Darn opposite days off. One day will have plenty time to enjoy Heaven on God’s porch bro! Thanks for being there and all you did here also! You are missed! ❤️ Joey

    Michael, never would I have imagined that I'd be saying goodbye to you before you'd say goodbye to me. It doesn't seem fair that the young go before the old., but it's God's will. I am so happy that you FaceTime me a few months ago, we had a good conversation, we laughed & talked away. In April I wished you a happy birthday & you said, " thank you, sweetheart & I love you". ,then I wished you a happy July 4th & you responded back by saying " Happy 4th & once again told me you loved me. I have more peace because of that. Even though we didn't actually talk, we texted which is the basic way ppl communicate these days. Im so thankful for our text because they were so recent.. I will miss you but I know your at peace. Until we meet again, I'll carry you in my heart ❤ I was blessed being your aunt! love you always and forever.

      Pasty Rainwater, you sound like a wonderful person. I just met Michael's girls at his funeral. The last time I seen the girls they were very young. Brittany wasn't even born. They all are beautiful. Now Aubrey Grace is here and she's beautiful & perfect. God how I wish he could be here holding her. His life was cut way to short. I miss him so much. He recentlly FaceTimed me & then we started talking on messenger. The last time we spoke on messenger was July 5th. Then I get a call that he passed away. Still so unreal but I know the reality. It was nice talking to you & God bless you. ❤
