  1. Sometimes words can seem so inadequate during this time of grief and pain. Pray for strength and comfort to come for you and your family until the words of Isaiah 35:5,6 are fulfilled.

  2. So very sorry for the loss of Mike. Mike will always have a special place in my heart. He was an amazing, fun, sensitive, caring and loving man! I always treasured my time of working with him at REACH and his “hubba-hubba” was like his trademark. We’ll love you always, Mike!

  3. Heaven is getting one of the good guys. His hugs and smiles will be dearly missed. He was a charmer. Our sympathy and prayers to Mikey’s family and friends.

  4. I was friends with Mike at REACH for over 22 years. He was a good man with a strong sense of right and wrong. I have an empty space without him. Along with the help of his good friend Lynn, he would dress as Holly each year for Hallowwen. He really enjoyed his blond wig! Good bye my friend, I will miss you.

  5. Sorry to hear the news about Mike’s passing. I remember spending time with him when we were little when he would come visit my mom (Helen Schneider) with his mom Leona. He was a very special person even then. Our sympathies to the family.

  6. To all of Mikeys family, I so loved being able to provide care for Mikey for the past 11 years. That guy stole my heart from day one. I sure miss my buddy. He was so fortunate he had a family that embraced his uniqueness and loved him unconditionally.

  7. I would like to take time to give my prayers and thoughts to the family of Michael. Years ago Michael used to be involved in Special Olympics. That is how I got to know Michael. He was such a great guy. Please pass on our thoughts and prayers. Angels are singing in heaven. Coach Cindy
