Mom

We've had our ups and downs over the years but know that you were always in my heart. It hasn't sunk in yet but I know this, you are my son always and forever. Even though my heart is broken, I know you're in a happier place without pain.

Hale

I'm having a hard time letting this one sink in.
All those laughs and smiles that you brought to everyone's faces.
You always knew how to light up a room, so I know you are doing the same thing up there!

I'll never forget all the happy and joyful memories that were shared, or that time when you saved me from being thrown into a dirty pool!
You are a wonderful man, who is flying high in heaven now!
We will all miss you so very much!

Love you so much Mike!
Till we see each other again.

I’m so so sorry this happened to you BATMAN, I’m going to miss all the laughs and jokes and the stupid shit we all did on a daily basis.

Words can’t even explain everything I’m feeling right now. I will forever miss our car rides to get ice cream and curly fries. I also have no idea what I’m gonna do without your pep talks every time something bad happens. I love you dad, RIP

Kristin Blair

Mike I still can’t wrap my head around this, you were just at my house a few days before this. We had spoke on the phone around 10:30 pm night before. I know in the 20 years of knowing you and in the 14 years of our marriage we had some up and downs, but no matter what we always stuck by each other’s side. I am so sorry for your family and friends loss but most importantly our kids Kyle and Heidi. We will miss you dearly and never forget you. RIP my mikeybear You will always have a special place in my heart and the kids. I wish I could be there to say goodbye but you’d be yelling at me for leaving the hospital. I have got these transplants in the bag because I have a special guardian Angel looking over me now. Thanks for everything. I love you til the end of my time. ♥️♥️♥️ Your loving wife Kristin

Shelly

I will forever miss “Batman”. I will miss making you your own Easter basket, so you wouldn’t steal any candy from the kids and I’ll miss licking every piece of chocolate in that basket before giving it to you. My heart is broken. You were supposed to come over for Christmas, open presents and have a nice prime rib dinner, and take Glenn’s chocolate cream pie. I hope you’re enjoying the homemade strawberry short cake that Grandma Thornhill is making for you up there!!!! RIP BATMAN
