Mikey will be remembered for being funny and having a loud personality. He loved sweets, especially ice cream and anything chocolate. He was a true mechanic at heart, constantly taking things a part and putting them back together.

My handsome big baby brother. You were so tall, handsome, kind loving, giving, a true protector. My heart breaks thinking that you left and how you left this world too soon. I would gladly trade my life if you could be here. My kids are grown but you had so many more years you needed with yours. When my fiance that I have now had to go serve a month and a few weeks for a warrant. I cried I knew that I couldnt hold, smell, love on him until he came home how selfish and stupid I was. Now you are gone, and when I got the news The first thing I thought about was your true love Christina. Rest in peace knowing she is loved and if she needs anything we will all be here for her and the kids. I cant wait to meet her. I will truely miss your voice your smile and your kind soul. Rest in peace mijo. I love you my baby brother from another mother. But you are my full blood brother no matter what. Rest in peace Mikey💙Until we meet again tell grandma I send her hugs and kisses. April too, my beautiful sweet cousin Velma, Jerry, Big Joe , Micheal and so on. I send you hugs and kisses too my sweet brother. Thank you for always asking me if I was ok or if my kids were ok. You were a wonderful brother and uncle. I love you. 😢

Mike just as I will ALWAYS say to you at your darkest moments in life that I will ALWAYS be here for you I meant that, but now i must sadly say you will ALWAYS be in my heart and never forgotten. All I have left of you are pics, video clips, letters, drawings, and for the most part wonderful precious memories of YOU/US. When received the news I couldn't believe it so had to drive to Seguin to hear for myself. I can't stop thinking about you brother. There's no way in the world blood could have brought any closer. We had a strong a bond. I was told last night from the receptionists at my job that u came looking for me on a day I was not scheduled to work and that broke me down all over again. I feel so lost and hurt without you Mike. We love you. Me and the kids will always keep you in our hearts and prayers😭
