Uncle Mick was gentle, patient, caring, and very proud of his family. My sympathy is with all the family and appreciate the great support he gave my brother Brent. Thinking of all the fun times we had in Mossburn with our cousins. Marilyn Hine, née Everett

Mick, I will always remember your smile and caring Heart, the warm embrace you always gave me. You being there for Nanna and and me/us through good and bad times. No matter what, you will always be remembered, because there'll never be another one to replace you in my Heart and the love I will always have for you.
Growning up in Mossburn was a very big part of my life and you and Nanna were a special part of it.
