I met “lil Mikey”, as we called him, as soon as I moved to the neighborhood in 2009. He loved to come over and hang out with DJ and work on all of the toys, he was such a hard worker! Mikey was always ready to lend a hand! It seemed he always showed up just when he was needed! We’ve had a lot of fun fixing 3 wheelers and dirt bikes. Chasing dogs, pigs, goats, chickens, around the neighborhood. I know they all grow up, but I wish I still had that sweet, funny, hard working kid!
We will forever be your favorite neighbors. We will miss you until we see that smile and hear that laugh again. Love you Mikey and the Patterson family❤️ it is because of Mikey that his family and I ever became so close and I will always be thankful for that.
My deepest condolences.

Mike, Sandy, Summer and Sabrina,

Our hearts are heavy, knowing that Mikey left us way too soon. We send you our love and prayers that the memories of Mikey will continue to comfort you. Having the assurance that Mikey received Jesus as his Lord and Savior is part of that comfort. An eternity awaits each of us, and this short life prepares the way for eternity. Our prayers surround you.

Dear Mike, Sandy, Sabrina, and Summer,

There are really no words that can express the sadness and grief that you all are feeling. Nor are there any words that can take every pain, hardship, and what challenges you are facing, away. Michael (Mikey) had one of those spirits that just brought life and joy in the atmosphere. He had so much energy and just having him around put a smile on your face and happiness in your heart. I remember Mikey when he came down and stayed with us. He was fun, funny, affectionate, and his cousin followed him around. And Mikey didn’t mind at all. I only have good, happy memories of Mikey.

The one and only thing that brings peace and comfort is that Michael received Jesus as his Lord and Savior. His spirit lives on and he is now free from sickness, crying, and pain. Now Michael is in perfect health, joy, surrounded by praise and all the pleasures of heaven.

My prayers go up for you all. Trusting God the Father, Jesus the Son, and Holy Spirit to be with you all and miracles to come.


Mikey will be missed here until we see him again. Only can we be greeted by Mikey, at the entrance of eternity, by receiving Jesus as our personal Savior and submission to His will.

I will see you someday, Michael E Patterson 111
