I am honestly at a loss for words while I sit here typing this...I really don't know how to start!

We have been informed that a short time ago that Mustache has been dealt with a tragic loss this afternoon. His oldest son, Little Mustache(Mike Jr.), has passed away.

We do not know the full details at this time, but please keep Mustache's family in your thoughts and prayers during this ordeal.

We will inform everybody as to any details that Mustache would like us to share, once they are available.

bass or bass?

I just sent him a PM relating my sympathy. I know his pain too well myself. God's blessings and strength to the family.


A tragic loss---I feel sympathy, and sincerely hope for strength for the whole family while dealing with such a shattering trauma.

I am so so sorry for your loss Stache. Words do not make it better but you and your family are in my prayers.

Wishin' I was fishin'.
I don't even have two pennies to rub together right now; not for at least four more days. Man, this is heartbreaking. Will someone be taking up donations for the funeral too?

Mustache, my wife and I will keep you and yours in our thoughts too!

Mustache and his wife has asked everyone to do a random simple, but meaningful, act of kindness in memory of Mike Jr. They feel that it will help make the world a better place.


Condolences to Mustache and his wife on the loss of a Son. I send strength and comfort as I know the feeling.
