Dear Mick, We don’t have words to express how much love we have for you and how much we miss you. You have been the bright light in our world. Everyone that has ever known you sees you as “the strong one.” But many would also say that you are the most tender. So many times, you have been the one at such critical moments to have the best idea, or to work the hardest in the most difficult of circumstances to make it perfect for everyone else involved. Although a bit mischievous at times, when you were little, you would always brilliantly come up with the perfect games of rescuing all the stuffed animals from the lava in the living room. Imagining that all of the kids lived in the woods, painted their faces and you would, of course, have to build a fire. You were fearless and willing to push the boundaries to whatever circumstance you were in, serving those you love. Even if you didn’t say the words, you loved deeply and fully, and your actions proved that time and again. Your humor was unique and infectious, and you always had a story to tell. You would make sure Deven always got a Dr. Pepper and tell everyone that you didn’t need water because it was already in the DP. If there was any chance to make an explosion with fireworks, you were the first to jump in and light ‘em up and “go on get” when Uncle Chris’ truck almost caught on fire, and you had to run to grab Journey out of the way. Your work was so important to you and your ambition proved that you could become a manager at just 23 years old. We are so proud. Your sense of purpose was deeply fulfilled in your role as provider for your siblings, as a leader to those you worked with, and in the way that you lived life. IT was to the fullest. You are the epitome of selflessness, humility, and fun. It is amazing to us to reflect on the story of your life and see how true, honest, and deep you have been. You have deeply imprinted on each person that you have encountered. Most of all as your family, we have had the privilege to know you the most intimately. Tristani calls you sister, Journey calls you caring, Ethan knows you as the backbone of this family. Ma and Trina are so grateful for the role that you played as protector. You will always be the missing piece in our world. We are truly honored by your life. ~See ya, Tristani, Ethan, Journey, Harlan, Ma, Trina, Aunt Mandy, Gammy, Abby, Uncle Kyle, Uncle Josh, Nana, Papa, Eric, Uncle Chris, Aunt Christy, Ashlyn, Zak, Lucas, Aunt Kimmy, Uncle David, Deven, Dylan, Alyssa,
