    Darrell and Family,

    I want to extend by sincerest condolences and heartfelt thoughts to you during this difficult time of Mike’s passing. He was a great kid and I have wonderful memories of him hanging around Swinney Gymnasium at UMKC back in the late 1970’s as a part of the Kangaroo basketball family. May you get some comfort in knowing he is at peace and hold on to all the precious memories a father has with his son.

    TO THE FAMILY OF MIKE. I SPENT MIDDLE SCHOOL AND SOME YEARS AT SMS WITH MIKE, AND MANY FUN TIMES AFTER SCHOOL. I DON’T NEED TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH PLEASURE AND FUN WE ALL HAD WITH MIKE, HIS LAUGHTER, SMILE, AND SENSE OF HUMOR WAS PRICELESS. THERE ARE NO WORDS I CAN SAY THAT CAN EXPRESS MY SORROW FOR THE PAIN YOU ALL ARE GOING THROUGH, NOR ANYTHING THAT WILL BRING HIM BACK. SO I WISH TO ONLY DISPLAY THE HAPPY THOUGHTS OF MIKE, I FEEL THAT’S PROBABLY WHAT HE WOULD WANT TO HAVE , RATHER THAN SORROW.
    MY PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF YOU AND MY FELLOW FRIENDS THAT FOLLOWED MIKE AS I HAVE.
    TRULY, DEVON COPP

    I can always remember Mike’s huge smile and him talking to me over the summers in KC after I became a Sigma Chi! Although I was quite a bit younger then Mike, Brooks, Chad, and Mike would always debate on who was the best athlete in the family! I think it might have been Mike! God Speed to the Corwin family! Love you all so much! In Hoc!

    I’m so sad to hear of the loss of your son. Mike has been a friend and employee of mine off and on for the last 25 years. He recently started help us out again about a month ago. I’m very greatful we were able to reflect on all the memories the last month. Mike is a good friend and employee and he will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Dear Wynne: I’m so sorry to hear that Mike has passed away. I knew him from the time he was eleven years old, always so lively and full of laughter, often up to something. As we remember, he and my son Chris played on the same basketball team in Middle School, Mike used to dribble down that court like a fire engine. As the years went by Mike grew more handsome than I could ever have imagined. When I was very ill one time he looked after me for a month, cooking delicious meals for me, handling medications, telling jokes, and bringing sunshine into my days. When I heard how ill he was I was grief stricken, it just didn’t seem true. Now Wynne I know your heart is broken, I wish I could somehow help you, perhaps I should say I’ve been through this and somehow one day I learnt to smile again. Please know that in spirit your wonderful son will always be with you. Goodbye for now Mike, but it won’t be forever.
