Just found out about his death today (Friday). I remember the good ole days playing baseball with Mickey & several others in the red clay field at Lydia Mill. We both had red hair but his was a little more red. I never knew him to be violet but I have a great little story if someone in the family would like to hear it. I'm in the Laurens section of the PRTC phone book & on Facebook if you would like to contact me. I'm sure he was a blessing to his family.Lamar Patterson says RIP my friend.

Br and Sister Thomas are PRECIOUS to us!! When they pastored in Great Falls, we became friends. My son was 15 months old and fell off of the bed and broke his collarbone, and we left the hospital, we went to Pizza Hut for lunch. Br and Sister Thomas were in there and he came over and prayed for my son and my son remembers Br Thomas praying for him. We are praying for this precious family!!

When Connie and I were first married we attended the Gray Court Church of God. Brother Mickey was not only a great preacher he was a good friend to a couple of newly weds. We have lovingly held other preachers over time up to Mickey's genuine love for others. A great man of God. He will be missed but not forgotten. We will see him in Heaven.David & Connie FinleyPowedersville, SC
