The relationship I had with my brother, Mickey, was one of a kind. As far back in my childhood that I can remember the love and trust we had between us was unequaled. We were always there for each other through all the good and bad times in our lives. I loved him and will miss him deeply. I once gave him a little plaque which says it all:
How fortunate I am
How blessed I have been
For you are my brother
And also my friend.
Love, Pat

We were blessed to have Mickey as our friend and neighbor for over 25 years! Mickey was the first neighbor we met back in 1994- even before we closed on the house. We were walking up at the top of the hill admiring the setting when Mickey walked up to us and warmly welcomed us to the neighborhood. He remained that friendly to us for the next quarter century!
I enjoyed his brand of humor and our thoughtful conversations about the state of the world today. He always invited me to "come in and stay awhile" and often offered, " Do you want a high ball?" I would politely decline, although once I responded, "Mickey- It's only 10 in the morning!" We would talk and talk. One time I had left my burning pile to borrow a tool from him, and we got into a conversation. Before long we heard a siren screaming very close by. We wondered what all the commotion was about. Soon we found out; the fire chief and a police officer were at my burning pile! Apparently there was a burning ban that I was violating.
Mickey was always eager to lend a helping hand. Early on, he would help me with various projects. He was always so generous with anything he had. Over the years I probably used more of his tools than my own, mainly because he had such a large assortment of tools and equipment. He would joke that he didn't know how to use half of them.
Mickey was the most honorable man we knew. He was a godly man with good old-fashioned values. He spoke truth and lived out his faith. My children respected Mickey and enjoyed visiting him. I was fortunate to have Mickey as a role-model for my family. We certainly will miss him! Included here is a picture of my daughter, Naomi, with Mickey when we visited him in May of last year.
Our heartfelt condolences to Patty, Mike & Margie, Peggy, Carrie & John, Cathy & Joe, and the rest of the family.
Love in Christ,
Jay Burns

My Uncle Mickey was, and will always be a ray of sunshine in my life. His constant “I love ya now”, his big hugs and kisses every time I got to see him meant the world to me. His funny “Me Mudder” poems, His answers to “wonder what the weather supposed to be like?” He always would say, “I just get up and look out the window”. As a little girl, I loved to go spend weeks at a time at his house. Even if it drove him and Aunt Patty nuts! Uncle Mickey's heart, to me, was a heart full of love, gentleness, and his family. Uncle belief, is that now, your spirit is at peace along with my Momma's spirit.
To Aunt Patty, Mike, Peggy, Cathy, and Carrie...I’m so sorry for your loss. I am praying for peace, comfort, and the presence of God to help you in the coming days.
