My deepest condolences to your family and all those who knew your son. My prayers for you all as you go through this unimaginable loss. My heart as a parent breaks for you. I pray for you to find some peace somehow during this time.

I'm so sorry. I speak for the entire Goodcents family that had the pleasure of serving this young man his favorite pregame sandwich while he went to SMW. Footlong chicken on wheat toasted with pepper jack cheese and bacon, call it the mikey sandwich. He lit up the whole restaurant! We watched him grow up into a fine young man. My heart breaks for his friends and family. Rest in Peace young man.

Debbie and I are saddened at Mikey's passing. We are thinking of you and your family. A hug from all of us here to you and yours.

This family has been my family since early 1970's, yes that makes me an old fart. I have watched them all grow up and become handsome young men and women with families. Roy was my brother, as they say (I don't like this, but it fits) from a different mother. As Roy and I were having "choir practice" in the garage, little Mikey, it seemed like it, was always there, running around, hugging his grandpa and steering clear of me until after a while I guess when he figured out that I was kind of harmless. This whole debacle is as tragic as it gets, I am beyond words of sorrow, just can't come up with it. Mikey turned out, (no surprise) to be a handsome young man, he is a total very unnecessary and tragic loss to all of us. So sorry for the entire family, hope I have not said too much!

Watching you grow up through your mother’s eyes was a joy. Your short life on this planet left a big heart print. Melanie and family, God bless and keep you.

Our deepest condolences to the Williamson family. Such a senseless act. Mikey and Joe would go fishing together when we lived in Parkhurst. Joe just loved it because “Mikey knows what he’s doing”. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.

Jeff, Angie and Joe Placek

Mike and Melanie, I am heart-broken to hear of Mikey's passing. Kim and I send out our deepest condolences to you and your family. I never had the pleasure of personally meeting Mikey, but I can only imagine what a wonderful young man he was, knowing his parents the way I do. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this painful time.

Chuck and Kim Pisano

My deepest condolences to the Williamson family. I rode the bus with Mikey all through elementary, middle, and high school. We grew up together, and he is present in many of my childhood memories. It was always hard to stay mad at him when we teased each other, he never failed to make me and many around him laugh. Again, my heart and prayers are with the Williamson family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss.

Avery Schmidt

Mikey, I’m so thankful to have been your friend and teammate. You were always full of energy, life, light, and joy. You’re gone too soon, I’ll always think of you when I step onto a softball field, thinking of the first times you played with us and having to tell you to keep quiet about only being 17 cause you weren’t old enough to play. I’ll cherish the memories we had, and we will never forget you. Rest In Peace my brother, I love you and hope you knew how much I respected and cared for you.

Jon Hicks

My heart breaks for your family. Such a handsome young man, taken too soon. Many prayers for peace & comfort through this difficult time. With every scent, dream, feeling, memory may you be reminded that he is always with you.
