    Micheal Jay Bliss will forever be missed dearly. He was such a great person. Not only was he my uncle, but he was also my Godfather. I have such great memories of him and his death was really hard on me. I still can't believe it. But I know that I will see him again.

    Uncle Mike, I love you and miss you. You will forever be in my heart. Love your Godchild Monica.
