It seems like the years are going by so fast but sometimes it still feels like yesterday since you've been gone. You have a new brother in law. I think you would love him. He is the sweetest, most generous person you could meet. And he is the reason this page still exists. You have two new niece's as well. Leah and Autumn would steal your heart. I can hear them now uncle Mikey come play with us. Leah is more outgoing. Autumn is more contemplating like see just sits and takes everything in. They are growing so fast. I know you are watching over them from afar, protecting them. I sent you birthday wishes. We love and miss you everyday baby brother.

It's been a year today since you were taken from us. There isn't a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you. Love you babes. One day we will be reunited in a place far better than this old world the rest of us are in. Look after Grandma and Aunt Ruth and Matthew till I get there. Love you!

Where do I start? Michael was such a good person. He was not only my best friend but my protector. He didn't like anyone messing with his lil sister (that's what he always said I was to him). We grew up together and told each other everything. Always confiding each other. He was the first one that I told I was pregnant at 15 and helped me through it all. I will always love you Michael

Like many of u i also think of the skating rink when i here Mike Carwell's name. he was one of the best people i knew on a pair of skates. he taught me a few tricks on skates and i have since then taught thoses tricks on to my children. and through the little things like that, he will live on in our lives. No matter if u lost tough with him or not u will always be remembered.

I worked with Mike for 8 Years. He was always picking on me about something, usually about me driving a Dodge. He had the Most Amazing Sense of Humor & a Beautiful Smile. I loved listening to him tell a story. He was so funny! He is simply irreplaceable. Know that Our hearts are broken here at Tabor's and He will always be missed terribly! We will be Praying for all of his Family & Friends

I have known Mike for 13 years. I remember the first time I saw him on skates at greevalley. He was SMOOTH. You could tell he loved being out there. I remember when Alexis was born and remember how happy that made him. He was PROUD. My heart breaks for his family. It is so sad to know this young man is no longer with us. He will be missed here at Tabor's and in this LIFE. GOD BLESS.

When I hear the name Mike Cardwell...I think of the skating rink and can still see him with the oversized dice. He was one of the best skaters Words can never explain how my heart is breaking for his familiy and esp his daughter. Mike was a sweet, patient and funny man who left memories sketched in many hearts. Another life taken way to soon. May he Rest in Peace.

There are no words to express the sorror that fills our hearts. You were not just our friend, but our son. We shared many hours of time, laughs and many meals together. You might not be with us in body, but you will always be with us in the spirit. Someday, when Jesus call us home, we will all be joined together in Heaven, never to be parted again.

15 years at the rink. What memories. I can remember you sayin' to me..come on Lori, get that big ol' butt in gear..You were there when I need someone I could trust to mount my new skates. I remember when Alexis was born & I brought her an embroidered blanket to the hospital. You were always bigger than life. I pray that there is a skating rink in Heaven, roll on my dear friend...roll on..

If there's a skating rink in Heaven I'm sure you've been there already. If there are cars and trucks, I'm sure you'll be 4-wheeling. Wherever there's laughter, I'm sure you're in the middle of it. You can finally meet our grandad. I imagine my Mom and Granny were there to greet you. Welcome Home Son! Gone (too soon) but not forgotten.

Mike, I will miss your smile and your laughter. Miss all your stories and you spending your 6 months of vacation time at work with all us girls! You were the light of my Shwee's life and you will be truly missed. Thank you for all the enjoyment you have bought not only to my life, but to every life you touched. You will never be forgotten and will remain in our hearts forever.

I have known Michael for 17 years and our hearts are broken by this horrible tragedy. My husband Jimmy worked side by side with Mke for 10 years and they were great friends and yes somedays great enemies but they had love and respect for one another. Mike will be missed tremendously. Our hearts go out to his daughter and entire family. We are truely sorry for the loss of this great guy.

My heart is filled with sorry and grief. Words cannot express how much you meant to us all. No time distance could ever change the fact that you were considered a great friend to me and my family. I will miss you terribly. Until we meet again in heaven Michael. I love you my friend.

You left us too soon Michael! At least you no longer have any worries and we can all feel a little better knowing your up there watching over all of us. We will always love you, but we will also always miss you! RIP buddy your journey is over on earth but has only just begun in heaven.

My sweet baby brother, I love you so much. I will miss being able to see you and to hear you laugh and joke around. You were probably the biggest prankster I knew. Rest easy with the angels baby. I will love you forever and always miss you.
