To Mack and William,

My family and I are so sad for the loss of Michael. When my dad and I made our first visit to see Essie and our grandmother after they moved to Rutherfordton, I was a bored teenager. Michael was living with your mother that first visit and was so nice to me. He worked all day and then spent his evenings entertaining me with talking, playing games, and ice cream! It is a precious memory of his kindness that I cherish.

With much love,
Melodie Whiteside Steele and family
