I am sad to hear of Michael's passing. I work at the salon next to the store he worked at. I would always come over for snacks and he always greeted me with a smile. He spoke highly of his wife and children. Just like talking with family. He would joke and make you laugh. A very nice guy. Everyone in the salon was saddened to hear of his passing. Praying for his family's strength.

No words can express the sadness I feel hearing about Little Mike. Nor the joy of the memories felt over the years while in Indy. To Little Mike, I'll miss you. You were always smiling and full of joy. I will remember that always. Prayers to the family and the blessings so deserving.
Love, Peace and Happiness in all the days to come.
Joe Johnson and Family.
