    Michael, I’m so sorry I couldn’t save you. My heart is broken. I will miss you every single day. I will carry you in my heart until I die. I will miss your beautiful smile and blue eyes… I will miss your voice… I’m mad that we don’t have more time to make memories and celebrate milestones together. I will continue to look for you… just give me a sign. I love you with all my heart. Love, Erin.

      Hey wavy baby, I miss you more than words can describe. I thought I knew what heartbreak was, but boy was I wrong. Losing you is by far the most heartbreaking thing I’ve had to face. Although we cannot see you or hear you, we can feel you. I know you’re still here watching over us. Thank you for being such a kind and beautiful soul. Thank you for being there for me when I was feeling low, sharing music with me, and for all of the childhood memories. I remember playing in the mud together, walking home from school together, and getting sick together. I wish I could do it all over again. I will hold all of these memories very close to my heart. I will live on for you and try to be the best person I can be. I love you Mike. ????

    Michael , When we found out your mom was pregnant with you we had 1 month to prepare for your arrival ! One hour and 20 minutes of labor and a beautiful baby boy was born. You never had an ugly or awkward looking moment.. you were always the cutest kid.. All the memories and pictures are extremely hard for me right now to look at because I know this is all I have….and my heart will never recover …. Some say it will get easier as time goes by….time will tell …..right now it feels impossible….20 years will never be long enough……R.I.P my Michael Michael Motorcycle….I will love and miss you forever and a day…. Nana

    Oh sweet baby boy. Rest in peace. See you in heaven

  • Papa Posted June 29, 2018 12:02 pm

    Michael, even though I was your grandfather or papa as you would call me, I always thought of you as my son. I loved you from the first time I saw you and I will always love you. Michael not having you with us is unbearable at times, but we know you are in a better place now.

    Michael I pray that I was the father/ grandfather that you needed me to be and know, that I always tried to do what was best for you. Michael you will always have a special place in my heart and whenever I think of you I comfort myself by remembering you as the little boy who always had that smile and laugh and was always happy. Mike, nothing made my day better than when you would tell say to me ” I love you papa” Michael I loved you from the beginning and my love for you will never end. I love you and I know that I will see you again.

    Love Papa

    When we moved to Corona Tom and Michael were my sons best friend. The friendship continued for years and all the kids were great kids. I know how hard this is for Michael family and friends and I pray for all of them. I hope you all find some comfort knowing he is in a better place. I know Michael touched many lives and will me dearly missed. Rip Michael.

  • Alicia Lara Posted June 29, 2018 11:30 pm

    What I remember about Michael is that he was shy around me, but very polite. I would say hello and he would respond with a smile. I enjoyed watching how he played around and joked with his cousins. I will miss seeing him, but he’ll be there in spirit. We will all make sure of that. See you later Michael…

  • Tammi Schilling Garland Posted June 30, 2018 7:24 am

    My prayers for all the family and friends. I am sorry for your pain. May God comfort you in the assurance of salvation and knowing that Michael is in Heaven and that you will see him again.

  • Chrissy Riggs Posted June 30, 2018 6:16 pm

    To Kim and Family,
    I am so sorry. Nothing could be worse. I wish I had gotten to know my little cousin. But stuff happens. I will pray for you and your hearts to heal. If people offer help, take it. Don’t forget to sleep. God will help carry You through this horrible time.
