My sincere condolences Pat and Fred. You raised a wonderful son. Mike always thought of others before himself and had such a kind heart. I will miss his humour and thoughtfulness. He has fought a long hard battle and was so blessed to have such supportive parents by his side. May he now rest in peace.

Donny and I were very sad to hear about Mike. We are both sending you warm hugs and prayers and lot of love.

Mike will definitely be missed by many.

Nothing I say can take away the pain. Mike was one of the most kind hearted people I have ever met. His smile could light up a room and his laugh made me want to laugh no matter how bad a mood I was in. He was a shining example that you didn't have to be blood to be related. He embodied the word "brother" by treating all of his friends like they were his brothers. I am truly honored to have known Mike and he will forever be in my mind and my heart. R.I.P. Mike...my friend...my brother. Until we meet again.

Dear Pat my sincere condolences to you and your family. Mike always showed such courage as he met the challenges of his life. May God Bless you all and give you Peace.

To all of Mike's family. I am sorry for your loss. Mike was a guy with an endless smile and a kind heart. A life taken way too soon. Rest in peace Mike. You will be remembered.

Pat and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Mike. He was always one of my favourites to wait on. He was upbeat and loved to joke around . "Mike when you reach the gates of heaven it will be your day, wink wink."

Working with Mike was always an adventure you never knew what either of us were gonna do? Mike was always easy going and smiling. I learned a lot about the band Kiss through Mike even though I was always a fan... just never brought it to his level. Safe journey my friend and can't wait to hear you play Hard luck woman on the harp! R.I.P.

So sorry for your loss Jeff Candace and family Lucky & Carrie Holmes
