Mike...I know that I never told you this but since I was little and I would go with you to shoot trap I have always looked up to you. You were not just a friend to me you were a big brother that I lost. You were the brother that I never had. You ment a lot to me and seeing you always put a smile on my face no matter when I saw you, no matter what kind of a day I was having you always put me in a better mood. I think about you everyday and miss passing you on the road every morning because for the past three years I have passed you either on your way to or from work on my way to or from school. Sometimes both ways. You watched over me when you were here and you made sure that I stayed out of trouble and I know that you are watching over me right now making sure that I stay out of trouble. Everytime I would see your mom I would always ask how you were and I would tell her to tell you hi. Your are greatly missed by all of us. There are still times when dad talks about when he use to shoot with you and how much fun it was. Well until me meet again, I miss you very much and I will always remember and think of you and remember all the good and fun times we had together. With love, Jenny

Brother Mike,
This is another Website where everyone can say good things about YOU. I truly Have never heard a bad thing about you. It has been hard Mike. Everyday I think about you, and how this could have happened to you. This is not the way that I had thought things would end up. Eventually you, Pat and I would all work together somewhere, God help our employer if that ever happened. I try to keep my head up and think about ALL the FUN that we had. I miss that fun. You will never be forgotten by me. I will carry your name on forever. I will tell everyone I can about the good man that you are. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP US ALL. Jason

Micheal, I did not know you. However, I would like to share this story with every one.

On May 17, 2001, I stopped at a Dunkin Donuts for may daily dose of coffee. There were these two women that were lost and I proceeded to give them directions to where they needed to go. One of the women asked me if I was a Police Officer (due to my jacket). I advised her that I was retired. This woman reached into her purse and pulled something out. She introduced herself as Michael Nickerson's mother. My eyes filled up with tears, as Mrs. Nickerson gave me a pin with Michael's picture and a card. and I gave her my condolances and said Thank You and cried a little more.

God for some reason has brought us together and I thank him.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people become friends and stay awhile... leaving beautiful footprints on our hearts... and we are never quite the same because we have made a good friend. Mike was a good friend to many people whose lives he touched in a special way. I will never in all my life forget him, or the good times that i shared with him. Mike you were a great guy, and I am very saddened to have had you taken from us. You are greatly missed, an I can't wait to see you again someday.

See you soon buddy!!

With Love,

Byrd

ALTHOUGH MY TIME IN KNOWING YOU WAS BRIEF, I LOVE HEARING THE MEMORIES THAT RICKY AND FELLOW OFFICERS SHARE ABOUT YOU.

YOU SEEMED TO BE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY WHERE EVER YOU WENT.

I HAVE GONE TO A FEW EVENTS IN YOUR HONOR AND THE LOVE IN THAT ROOM FOR YOU WAS OVERWHELMING. WHEN THEY WOULD SPEAK OF MEMORIES OF YOU, THERE WAS NOT A DRY EYE IN THE HOUSE.

THESE EVENTS ARE PUT ON TO KEEP YOUR NAME ALIVE, BUT BELIEVE ME, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. I WILL DO MY PART TO HELP RAISE MONEY FOR YOUR FUND, BUT YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART. WHEN THE SONG, "YOU ARE MY ANGLE" SAYS "WHO'S GONNA HAVE YOUR BACK WHEN IT'S ALL DONE", PLEASE LET THAT BE YOU!!!!!

WITH ALL MY LOVE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,
DEBBIE AND RICKY STRONG

Mike,
I still think about you all of the time. I talked to Albert the other night and he put a smile on my face just like you always did. I know that you have been watching over me lately and keeping me safe. There have been some close calls as you know that you keep me out of. Keep watching over us and PLEASE keep Jason and Ope and the rest of the GUYS clear of danger. Love and MISS YOU ALWAYS. UNTIL WE MEEET AGAIN.

Dear Mike,
I knew for just a short time but everytime you came into the store I worked in you were always smiling. I remember you coming into get gas for your truck one of your other pride and joys. You never had a bad remark for anyone you would have gave anyone the shirt off your back If you thought It would help someone in a time of need. I miss you Mike very much. Your family has been very strong through all of this. I know you watch over all your fellow officers and everyone down here can't wait to see you again.
A good friend Debbie Lurch

Mike and family:
I went to the Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial service this week in your honor and saw your name engraved. I hope your family has been able to make it there to visit, but I know they must be busy with the trial. Who would have guessed back in the academy that something like this would have happened. I also wanted your family to know that your picture sits in a chair in the back of our police academy classroom to remind our student officers of the sacrifice they may be called on to make. Lexi

Michael:

I did not know you in life , however I have gotten to know you through your friends and family during the trial. It would have been a great honor to have worked with you. You are a hero, and will always be. May God bless you and your family.

Hey Mike, There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and your family. Thanks for continuing to watch out over your fellow officers and giving us strength and motivation to continue our jobs. Thanks for watching out over me last week, you know what I'm talking about because you were there with me. I still miss you and I'm still so very proud of you. Keep the beer cold and I'll see you again sometime! Sean

Brother Mike,
I still visit the websites and read all the good things that people have to say about you everyday. I miss you man. I still have a lot of problems dealing with this entire incident. I will continue to tell everyone what a great person you are. Until we meet again

Mike,
Although I did not know you well, as someone hoping to enter the law enforcement community, I have been affected greatly by the loss of such a fantastic hero. Those that knew you tell such loving and entertaining stories. But we all know that although we needed you here so much, God needed you more. I'm sure it won't take you long to get your wings. I only hope that you're looking down on me as well.

Although I didnt know you, you are a true example of a hero to those of us out there serving each day. You gave the ultimate sacrifice and we think about you often. God bless!

Hey! Brother Mike, I am just writing to let you know that I still think about you everyday and I still try to maintain that fervor and desire that you had being a police officer, even though it is very difficult at times in this place. Every shift I work is dedicated to you and I hope Brother Phil and the rest of the family hang in there. Until we meet again, keep your watch over me. Peace BROTHER.
