  5. prayers for the family mike was one of the hardest working employees i’ve worked with he would do anything for anyone we also became great friends and got to hunt and fish together i especially remember great memories when he came up here and helped us with the hunting outfitter in seymour one year he did all the cooking and everyone loved it rest in piece my friend

  6. Mikey greeted me for the last 20 years about the same way – “why are you at my house?” He then proceeded to talk my leg off on those days he felt like talking. He helped build fence, cut my yard after my surgery and to my surprise even helped you pull weeds in my flower bed again after one of my surgeries. Though he tried to act like a cranky old man, those that knew him understood his heart of gold. He would complain loudly when I checked on him while you were out of town but also complain if I didn’t stop by LOL! I miss him as do all those that lived him.

  7. It was one weekend in September 1992, I had just bought a boxer puppy (Sargeant Rock) and my boyfriend needed me to go to Victoria with him, when I had to leave Sarge with Mikey. You ask was I nervous: OF COURSE I WAS ! This is Mikey we’re talking about! The only exception was to not give him Lonestar Beer to drink. Wouldn’t ya know it the very first night he slipped him some of his Lonestar, so you know Mikey really loved that dog, since only Billy Bob shared his beer. Well, when I got back in town one of the first pictures Kristi showed me was of Mikey with Sargeant with his paw on a Lonestar can of beer. But he’s not hurting anymore & he can bulldog in heaven with the best of them. I love you Mikey Hosea, you will always be in my memories! Hang in there fam!

  8. Kristi my prayers are being said double that God will give you and Crystal all that you need at this time. Love you and miss you. You know if you need me just let me know and I will be there.

  9. My heart is broken to hear this. Mike & I went to school together . We were good friends through the years in school. I am so sorry to hear of his loss. My thoughts & prayers are with you all.

  10. Worked with Mike in Navasota, we were on a BBQ team together. Always thought the world of him. We stayed in touch still after all these years every once in awhile. Way too early to lose such a great guy.
