I am very saddened by this news. Riley (Mickey) was my First Cousin. His Mother and my Father are siblings. I have not seen Mickey for 20 some years, but I will always remember him as being a sweet man. He would keep me company while I was babysitting other cousins. We would laugh and joke and always have a good time. I wish I had kept in touch better through the years, but I left Indiana when I was 16, and have been living in Arizona since. I have missed all of my family in Indiana, but Mickey was special, and his loss has left me very sad, and wishing I had a chance to see him one last time. I pray that God will strenghten and comfort my Aunts and Uncles and all of my cousins who are devastated by this and that He will give them the comfort and peace that only He can provide. If any of my family reading this would like to contact me, please email me at [email protected]
with my deepest sympathy,
Michaele (Holliday) Lee
