We are all honored and blessed to have been a part of Mike’s life as he was a part of so many life’s even though his time with us was limited. I will remember every moment we had together thought-out the years. You might have left us physically but we know you will be watching over us spiritually. You will definitely be missed RIP Mike and until the next time we meet in another place maybe we’ll be friends in the next lifetime. Kelly and the entire Black Family my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mike , I am going to miss the way you would tease me. Along with the sweet person you were and a very great friend to my husband. A wonderful figure for my son and just seeing you with your family. I know you’re in a better place now. May God be with your family and friends now and in the future. May you Rest In Peace now.

So sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. We were
acquaintances through the transmission shows and I always appreciated a conversation with Mike. His creativity and calm way of dealing with folks was always apparent. I wish his family and friends peace during this difficult period.

Mike Black is the best Husband, Father, Employer, Friend and all around greatest man I have known. He will truly be missed by all those who knew him. Mike was always a selfless man and the first to offer help to a person in need. As a favor to me he roasted a pig for my friends sister's wedding free of charge. The look on his face and Kelly's was priceless when we pulled up to the Sandy Pines house with a pig strapped into the back seat of an Alero as if it were a passenger. My prayers go out to his family.

My heart is broken for you all. Mikes kindness, courage and selflessness will live on in all of that had the honor to know him. That's what he would want!
You are in my prayers and thoughts. I am so so sorry for your loss.

Kelly, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry for your loss.
