Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

I enjoyed the opportunities to pester Mike and chat about life, family, politics, religion and whatnot. You have an awesome family and I'll set something on fire during the holidays in honor of Mike. Until later take care - jules

Mike was more than a brother and friend. He was an inspiration to everyone he came in contact with. I loved it when he would write a new song and hear him sing it he truly could sing and pull of anything musically possible. It was truly a blessing to watch him and Tommy Lee aka (Skinny Boy Lee play and make music together. He was the coolest hippie you could find with a huge heart! In the 20 years I knew Mike he taught and showed me a lot of things about art, music, culture, religion and life in general. He led a vast life with ups and downs and brought it forth in his music and art. He always found a way to make the best out of everything. I can still listen to his music and still get chills from his amazing voice and ability to write songs. My girls loved Mikey Big Foot as they called him they thought he was the coolest most inspirational person they've every met. My oldest Amanda loved to hang out and listen to music with him and paint she thought it was awesome. Her fondest memory was him loading her MP3 player with music while we were snowed in at his apartment in Lima. She still has paintings he gave her and she will cherish them forever. It's always hard to say goodbye but it's not forever as we'll meet again big brother! We all love and miss you deeply! Rest in peace and I'm sure you're still giving it hell wherever you are.

Dearest Alyssa and Wyeth, To read your Father's obituary has to bring a smile to your face... Even in this time of sadness, to read all he has accomplished in a short amount of time is simply remarkable... a gift actually. He LIVED and LOVED hard... it was like reading so many things about you... You have his love for earthy things, his creative genius that breaks molds, and compassion that can't be compared. Your gifts in the arts world, your love for music, and your drive, at least in part, comes from him. There's no denying that 🙂 DNA is amazing. I remember reading about my birth parents years ago, no names just their height, weight, eye color, and hobbies. That's all the adoption agency gave my parents who were adopting me. But boy oh Boy! It was like reading a story about me written by someone who never met me! I applaud you for the way you consistently took Wyeth to see him from the time he was very young until now. I loved seeing the pictures on Facebook of your visits. All of arts and crafts, and costume accessories, all of the baked goodies and celebrations, were priceless to see and I'm sure priceless moments in life for your Father. I am sending special thoughts to you and all of his family. I am personally incredibly grateful for his life... because without his life there would be no you, then there would be no Wyeth and on and on... So, you see, Mr. Cheeseman lives on through you, all that you do, and all that you are. Most who accomplish much, and make any type of mark on the world, have had a journey that many couldn't handle. But because they pressed through it all, many are forever touched and never the same. Rest on and Carry On Wayward Son?
