I was saddened to hear of Michael's passing. The few times I had spoken with him since high-school he told me of some things from his life and his love of the Lord and Penny were the top 2. I said before how much he loved you, Penny, and how amazing it must feel to be loved like that. He had a big heart for friends and family. Hold onto the feeling of being in his arms in a big hug. Let that feeling bring some comfort. I pray Jesus holds ya'll in love and comfort and you can have smiles through the tears and a few giggles to boot. God bless.
For Penny and family, hold tight to the good memories and know we will see him again when it’s our time. I will forever remember him as the brother I never had. Prayers for peace and comfort, Love y’all I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you, please kiss him goodbye for me! To be absent from the body is to be in the presence of our Lord.Kay
So sorry for your loss. We love you and Mike You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love Jett

Rip... Until we meet again brother...
I met Mike through Penny and he was like a brother to me. Always concerned with everyone else, even if he wasn't feeling well. His smile and laugh could light up a room. Heaven gained a "gate keeper". He will be there greeting those that enter with that beautiful grin. I can hear his welcome home now. No more pain, just joyous celebration. We will all miss him but he was needed by God to do his work now and one day, I know I will see him again. I love you Mike and Penny.
R.I.P Micheal you will be missed. Love you
Penny and Michael, I am so very sorry for your loss. Mike has been a great friend of mine for a very long time. When least expected, I would look up at a funeral of a family member and there he would be. I’m gonna miss all the funny videos and jokes he sent me. My prayers for comfort are with you and the rest of your family .
Rest in peace brother. You made it home and you did great.
You will be missed Mikey … your jokes, laughter and how you called my your Michelle…. You are a one of a kind and will be truly missed…. Love you Mikey
My heart goes out to the family, God bless you all. Mr. Faulkner will always be one of my favorites to have had the opportunity to care for.
It was an absolute pleasure to have known Mike. He was a genuine human and one heck of a shuffleboard player Penny I will continue to keep you in my prayers and may God comfort you and all the family during this time of loss.
Penny,I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
