    To family of Mike:
    I am so sorry for your loss of a son, brother or uncle.
    Mike was a dear friend of mine. He was the most kind, honest man I knew.
    We spent 5 years as an inseparable couple. We traveled to California, Hawaii, George and the mountains in NC. He met and grew to love my family. I wanted him to reach out to you so desperately while we were together. I think it was the best time of his life. He told me he finally called. That made my day!
    If anyone would like to contact me, I would be happy to fill in some of those missing years. I also have some photos the family might like.

      Hi Rita, This is Erin Cullers Mike’s youngest sister. As I am sure you can imagine our whole family was and is still in shock over his tragic passing. We last talked with Mike about three months prior to his passing. We begged him to come home if only for a visit. We all love him and miss him so much, he was a vital part of our family. I spoke with my other siblings and we would love to have any current photos you have of Mike. Our mother has Alzheimer’s disease and we had to place her in an assisted living facility the Monday before Mike’s passing. We have not told her and will not tell her, it would push her over the edge.He is still her baby boy and she loves to tell people she has four children. I can send you my address if you are still willing to let us have some of his more recent photos. Thank you very much Erin Cullers
