Cricket's Thoughts

We Miss You Mikey

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Mikey!

You are the kind of friend that only comes along once in a lifetime.

You know the good, the bad, and the ugly about me, and you still put up with me anyway, because we are friends.

We share tears during heartbreaks, words of encouragement during challenging times, and above all we share laughter.

Even now, as I look back at all the hilarious stories you have told me, they still make me laugh until my cheeks hurt.

You have never been afraid to tell me when I have done a good job, nor to tell me straight up when I am being stupid.

You just tell me how it is.

Lord, we have played so many late night games of online pool, just to keep us sane when life was threatening to overwhelm us.

Have you ever admitted to a single soul how often I win? πŸ˜‰

When Haley goes through those times of wanting to rebel against the system, lashing out in anger and crying tears of frustration, you talk to her for hours and always end up singing Skippppppppy for her, never failing to bring a smile back to her face.

When y’all are done talking, she gets that silly grin and reminds me that Mikey said I needed to buy her Doritos and Skittles.

You have always been there for the friends in your life, giving all you have to give, expecting nothing in return. Once I asked you why you had done something for us, something we did not ask you for. Your response was so simple – because we are family.

You cannot explain friendship like that. It just is.

We miss you so very much Mikey.

Please get well soon.

    Since I heard you were hurt, you have no idea how many times I’ve listened to “Rockstar” until I cried. Mikey, you’re like my big brother. You’re my best friend in the world. I need you more than anyone. I know you’ll get better because you’re Mikey. You’re probably sleeping there, dreaming about eating Doritos and wondering why everyone is crying. We all love you and need you, so put down the Doritos and get back here Mikey.

    Love Always,

    Haley Girl

    Mike is that special someone who always finds his way into the lives of those that need him most. I have not spoken with him for almost a year now, since he helped me and my brother in ways only family would understand, I guess he wants it that way.

    I now understand what this is, pay it forward? He does good, we do good and so on, he has touched so many lives that as I search, both online and off line, it almost seems that Mike is a million people in a million different places helping those that need his help then just vanishing for a while. I hope with all my heart he gets better and never vanishes for good, because things will not be the same without him.
