Mike always had a great outlook on life and an outgoing personality; its obvious why he was successful in radio. Mike will certainly be missed.

Mike had the most beautiful smile, and laugh that was so infectious. He is definitely going to be missed by so many. I am sending prayers out to his friends and family.

Mike was always fun to spend time with and he always brought a smile to those around him. I am sure his easy wit will be missed by many, as we will miss him.

Mike's Grandmother was my babysitter between 3 and 4 yrs old. Mike lived next door and he would come over every day so we could play. She kept several kids at that time and when 1 got the chicken pox Mrs. Bandy made sure we all got it before we entered kindergarten. I remember being covered in the "pink stuff" and gloves on our hands so we wouldn't scratch. Mike would sneak over during nap time and I would scratch his back if he would scratch mine. We never were technically scratching ourselves so we couldn't really get in trouble.

Mike was a wonderful man and will be missed by all. It's a shame he had to die at such a young age.

I remember when we were in the first or second grade and Mike had a party at his house with games he had invented himself. One of my very favorite memories of high school was when we went to the Def Leppard concert with Mike and a few other people. Mike was the life of every party and a positive person. It is sad he is no longer with us.

I was one of the people that was with Mike and Jennifer when we went to the Def Leppard concert our junior year. I always had so much fun with Mike in Mrs. Carter's class. He was a great guy and I loved him dearly. He'll be missed.

Mike was a good friend of mine and I miss him very much. I will never forget the night of my prom my date turned out to be a @#$%^ and talked to another girl all night. Mike rescued me and we danced and laughed (he always made me laugh) and had a terrific time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Mike was one of my oldest friends (along with Tracey Bussell, Lee Jones, and many others...). We attended the same preschool (or nursery school, as we called it). I knew I could always depend on him and always considered him a dear friend, even if I didn't see him for years. Mike will be greatly missed.
