Dena, Toni, Madison and Winter, You all know I love you and I loved Mike. He has been my little brother for many years; especially since I lost Jamey. My heart is hurt, for your loss and for mine. I could always talk to Mike about everything, and often he would call me to talk and I was there to listen. I will never look at cinnamon pickles the same. I made them for him this year and will probably not ever make them again. Rest in peace Mike. I’m sad and hurt that you are gone, for me. But I’m happy and glad for you….no more pain, sickness, and seeing your mama and daddy again ( along with many of your old friends). You were more worried about Dena than yourself but she will be okay. We as her friends will be there for her. Love, Connie

Dena and Family
Thoughts and Prayers are with you always. Mike was definitely a good guy. He was one of the good ole boys. He fought the battle and he won. I know he is looking down from Heaven and smiling telling you he is ok and he don’t hurt anymore and “you will be fine”.
“Girlfriend I love you always”❣️

I am so sorry for your loss. We hung around with Micheal, Whit Whitfield and Sammy Killebrew when we lived in Oak City back in the early 1980’s. The last time I seen Micheal was in 2010 at my brother Micheal Cannons funeral, he still looked the same, with his long hair. Again I am sorry for your loss.

I am saddened to read this news of Mike’s passing. He was always a kind and thoughtful man. Although we weren’t very close, we’ve known each other for several decades. He and Dena always took time to talk with me whenever we saw each other and he always had his signature sense of humor and great smile. I’m sure he will be sorely missed.
May our Heavenly Father grant peace and comfort to all his family and friends at this trying time. RIP my friend.
