For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Dance Dear Michael, Dance!
The earth shall miss you, it will not be the same without you. We will all miss you and your smile and your laughter for the rest of our lives. May God hold you ever so tightly in His arms. Love, Aunt Patty

My sympathies to the family of Michael. He will be missed. Please take comfort in the scriptures, such as Rev. 21:4 which says that one day soon God "will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." We look forward to that time.

We all miss you, and we will continue to miss you, and long to hold you, again, but we will have to live from the love you left behind, in our memories of you, my precious boy. My deepest love son, dad.

Chrissy said...

Michael, I didn't see you very much in the past ten years. I was there the day you were born. I was at school on your first day of kindergarden with my own kids. At that time you were like one of my own. You were always making us laugh even if you weren't trying to! I will always keep that little boy in my heart. The one that laughed so very much and very offten. You must know how much your mom and dad love you and they always will. We will miss you always.

carmen said...

I have so many questions and not enougeh answers, I will never get them. But the facts are that you wanted to be the best father and person you could. I have witnessed soo many gestures of kindness to comlete strangers from you. From the first day i met you and we found out i was pregnant you said to me before I am anything I will always be a father first. You were meant to be a father. and you were. Now our world has stopped but only momentarily. We will heal we will never ever forget you. Your memory will not fade and I know you will watch over all of us family friends and most important your children . Cole, and I love you very much and we will see you again.

Tiffany said...

Even though he's gone
his memory still remains in our hearts.
His smile and face will never fade.
We think of him as we go on each day.
The good times we remember
and the days spent together
will be in our memories forever.
So when you start to get down
and you really want to cry
just think of the fun times
and don't wonder why.
Just leave it at that
and know he's better now.
He's in a better place.
His heart was right with God.
So Mike we love you
and we miss you so much
but we know you're much happier.
So watch over us and make sure we're okay
and we will see you again someday.

my prayers go out to the parsons family and to my sweet friend Carmen and her there precious son Coleman...... Mike you were a amazing person you always knew how to lift my spirt up when i was down you were funny kind and a good father to your childern alot of people looked up to you i cant put in words how much you will be missed!!!!! one day i will see you again on the other side but for now i will cherish the moments i did have with you, you will forever be in my heart!!!! i love you bub!!!!!

Bub, its been a while but you will always have a special place in my heart. You were always so generous to my grandmother and helped her out so much, from mowing her grass to helping her buy her groceries. We love and miss you! Our prayers are with you and your family. Good Bye Bubba and God Bless.

Love Always,

Bubba, you will be missed. R.I.P Bubba, you'll never be forgotten by any of us, we've all lost an amazing friend/family member, Bubba was someone who could make us smile. But in this time of loss we've gained one of the best guardian angels any of us could ask for to help look over us and guide us through life's path. Your heart will soar through everyone around ♥ Love goes to everyone ♥♥ I hold you and your family in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you

I am still having a hard time getting through the day knowing that you are not here. You have always given your all to make sure that everyone had what they needed. Everything you did was for your children.
Why God decided it was your time I dont understand. i know I should be happy that you are more happy than we can even imagine. But I am selfish and wish that you were here. There are going to be so many days ahead when i want you to hold our son, hear his laugh, hear him talk. i still dont know how I will ever raise him to be the man that you were. But I promise you i will do my best, he will know that you were the best father in the world.
mike please ease the pain in myheart. I am having a really hard time with this. You were always the strong, responsible one. Please help me and watch over me, cole and nini. please touch all of your children and let them feel your love. I will never let the world forget you....EVER!!! Coleman and I will love you always. oh and by the way I held Nini and told her how much you loved her and that not a day goes by that we dont think about her and love her. I promise you that I will always be good to our little girl and boy.
We love you. always and forever Coli and Coleman

The hurt and pain I feel is almost unbarable and I don't know how I will make it through this. You were the best brother and I love you! You were beautiful and sweet and generous and loving! I am blessed to be your sister! ALL MY LOVE..

Deborah Parsons said...

Bub, I miss you so much. I don't know how to live without you. Everyday seems to get worse. I now know so much more about the offel strife and stress you lived with. Please foregive me that I was not able to help you my son. I want you to know that you were the best Daddy and the best son anyone could have. You were a good young man and your heart was beautiful. You did everything you could to make things right for everyone.You did the best you could with your situation. I know this son. I am so sorry that your life was so miserable, it should not have been that way. I love you now and forever !!!!

Stephanie said...

I cant believe your gone Mike. You reached out to me and I ignored you out of respect for my husband, and now I regret it, killing myself with the what ifs. I am soo sorry Mike. I cant help but smile thru the tears because you truly are such an amazing person. You will always be remembered love. My heart is broken for your parents, your sisters and to the children you left behind. I am so very sorry for your loss Mr. and Mrs. Parsons.

Bubba I know your in heaven looking down on us trying to guide us watching as take the path we have chosen in life. Not every one makes good decisions in life but we must live with the decisions we have made for only God can Judge us and when the time comes to stand in front of his all mightiness then only and only then will the judgement matter. We must keep faith in the Lord and know that our loved ones are in heaven sitting next to God himself looking down. I go about life 1 day at a time trying to stay positive its just hard to stay positive when the death of ur bestfriend consumes ur life and its all u can think about. I miss Mike alot and patiently wait for the day when i will get to see my friend again thats all we can do is wait!! I have alot of love for the entire parson family my heart and prayers goes out to you and your family.

R.I.P for you will forever be missed

Momma said...

I guess it's time today, I know you cannot stay! Life has taken you away from me, but in my heart you'll always be! I'll love you all my days in store; I love you now and forever more! I miss you more than words can say; I'll miss you each and every day! My memories seem to change at will; They keep you much alive still! I wish blessing always for you, you did in life all you could do! You were the best my son, for you it is not done! You were all you could be, now it's up to you, go fly and see! Your life was in quite a snare; don't know what happened there! Life struggles to much to endure; now you're free from them for sure! Your dreams on earth did not come treu, however now they always do! Fly on my boy, for now your free; I know your watching over me! I'll keep you safe inside, until the other side!
Together soon we'll be my son, when it's my time to fly! Fly on baby, for it's okay, I will let you go today! My precious son, your free now honey, fly on son, it's never done!

I didn't know! I'm sorry I missed your funeral. I was thinking about you today and decided to look you up on google to try and get in contact with you. I wanted to catch up on life, when I found you have moved on!? I was thinking about how we used to kick it on the dirt road and help "Crazy Dave" with his washer and dryer operation for a quick buck. How I would spend the night and we would sneak out and roam the streets of Winter Park. We were the best of friends for a while and then went our seperate ways. I'm sorry I didn't keep in contact with you. May you know God's eternal mercy and behold his face in Heavan.

Mike, my heart is in sorrow of your news today. Childhood memories remain fresh as I think of all the years we cherished together! It wasn't easy but I loved you, my friend! Goodbye, my brother. Goodbye, my friend. See you in Heaven again:) Love, Laura L. Lecas

Unknown said...

Your most definitely were his BFF:)

Unknown said...

My heart goes out to you. So sorry to know a piece of your heart is gone.

He really loved you; he truly did.

Thinking of you Mike as I have almost everyday as I watch Coleman grow up. He has grown into such a handsome, intelligent, creative young man. Carmen shares stories with Coleman about your goals & dreams as an aspiring artist. It has been a struggle & challenge for Carmen raising a little boy without daddy. Losing you was difficult, to lose you the day after Carmen's birthday will always be a reminder of your last words to her that morning, your statement of love and commitment. God knows the truth of all that transpired after you spoke with Carmen that morning. That those that inflicted the harm against may not be proven here on Earth, but on judgement day it will be revealed. We love you Mike! Many prayers & love to Debbie & Mike
