Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Michael Wilkett who was born on May 01, 1983 and passed away on March 16, 2005 at the age of 21. We will remember him forever.

"...On the night the Angel came and took your hand,
We cried as you left for an unknown land.

But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright..."

Michael was born in Missouri to the very proud parents, Lisa and Mike Wilkett. Michael also was given a beautiful sister, Nicole "Nikki", when he was around 2 years old.

Michael is the oldest grandchild of Cathy Gullett, and has a bunch of cousins that he loved to be with! He also has the best aunts and uncles in the world! His family cared alot about him, and he had a special place in his heart for each and everyone of them, especially his cousin Brittany, whom he has been very close to since birth.

Michael was the type of person that you don't meet very often. He was always so friendly, up-beat, and positive about everything. Michael had a smile that could light up a room, and a heart the size of Texas. If you were ever having a bad day, you could always count on Michael to help you through it, and make you laugh a little along the way. Because of his amazing personality, he has alot of great friends, that he could always count on to cheer him up  when his chips were down.

Michael may have passed away, but he will always and forever be in the hearts of each and everyone of us who knew him.

We Love and miss you Michael!!

"For God So Loved The World, That He Gave His Only Begotten Son, That Whosever Believed In Him Should Not Perish, But Have Everlasting Life"
