  19. A heavy loss for me Mike. We became friends at 8 or 9 years old. and stayed friends from then on. You were a brother. Just as Ritchie. The 3 of us raised a lot of hell in Riverside growing up. We were the 3 crazy ones of the gang.But we always had each others back. We had the world by the throat and anything we wanted we just shook loose. I’ll never forget all the good times we had together. I hope you’re with Ritchie and raising hell. You are my brother and always will be my brother. I’ll see you on the other side. And Godspeed Amigo.

  24. Miss you ❤️ Michael until we meet again

  25. Love you Michael. Even though we haven’t spoken in years. I still cherish the time we had when you moved to Phoenix for awhile. Had lots of fun. Remember your little apartment with your pool table that took up the whole living room. Get a dozen people in there it was cramp. But even with that never see a beer spilt on the pool table. Lol. Wish I would have been in more contact than I was. But you have always been in my heart as all my family is back there. It was hard moving to Arizona at 9. Missed growing up with my cousins and aunts and uncles. Grandma and Grandpa came down almost every year. And now it’s been 20 years since I’ve been back there to see everyone. So I will make it a promise cuz. I’ll be back this summer to visit everyone and can. Including you. Loved you then love you now.

  26. I miss you already my crazy beautiful baby brother. I have peace knowing you are with the Lord and with mom and meme and pa and all of our loved ones in heaven. I know you are beyond the moon happy to be holding your son again. I know we will be together one day and until then I will hold all the memories of our lives close to my heart…
