Dear Carolyn, Mike,and Courtney and the entire Mecca/Sanders family,
If there were words I can offer to help ease you pain I would say them. All I can do is to pray for all of you that time will help heal some of the pain. Such a senseless tragedy but you guys are such a great family that I know your love for each other will help you get through this.
God Bless you all,
Gail

Mike was one of my best friends! We had been friends for over 15 years. My heart is broken as well as many others. Words cannot express my deepest condolences. Mike always made me laugh, we always had a good time. He taught me everything I know about contracting and electrical work. He will always be in my prayers and deeply missed. Now I will always think about the good times not the bad. I love you mike and you will never be forgotten!
