    Mikey boy! I was hoping to we’d get you back to the island for some adventures. Truly a tragedy to have you gone from our lives. A lot of people are missing you and will always love you. Words cannot express the feeling of your absence, I will always happily remember our times together, only wishing we had the chance for more. Love you.

    I remember when Michael and I were young boys probably less than 10 or so. Stan bought us fishing poles, and seemed like he took us to just about every fishing hole he knew of one summer. We also played around his Grandparents house out in Matoaca alot qhen Michael and Stan would drop by.

    I memories stretch back to when Michael and I were young boys, and Stan buying us fishing poles and taking us fishing what seemed like everyday almost. I remember us playing in the yard around his Grandparents house in Matoaca back then too.
