My deepest regrets and condolences to Mickey’s family. I lost touch with him since high school but I always keep him fondly in my thoughts when I think back to my school experiences. I'm glad he had a happy and successful life. May he RIP.

I am so sorry to read about Mickey. My thoughts and prayers are for peace and comfort for his family during this time of grieving. I gave Mickey all of my best marbles in the 5th grade. He loved Petey his toy dinosaur. Such fun memories. I will remember him fondly. What a great guy ...

Mary John and Family so sorry to hear about Mickey.  He was a long time friend going all the way back to Junior High School.  I lost touch with him after high school, but then reconnected again about 20 years ago when my wife and I walked into Fifth Avenue Baptist Church.  It turned out that the Sunday School Teacher for our age group was Mickey.  We later joined Fifth Avenue and maintained some contact with him after that.  The last time I saw Mickey and Mary John face to face was 2 or 3 years ago.  Will miss you my friend until we meet again in Heaven.
