Missing My Homeboy / Sgt. Omari Hendrix (Fellow Soldier )
I was just sitting here thinking about some of the clothes that I've never worn and a particular pair of jeans always come to mind....a pair that I purchased back in 2004 when I Dickey and I were on Sea Island, Ga working the G8 Summit. We caught the shuttle to a local shopping center and spent a few dollars...lol! Michael was a special friend with a smile that would light up a room. He and I also went to a SINGARDS class together because we were both making up some drills. Those are a few "1st Time Things" that I'll never forget because of him. Til this day, I have never worn those jeans...and never will. R.I.P. Soldier! Close

I didn't know....... / Shalonda Hudson (Friend)
Well, I didn't know about your lost. I remember Michael just like it was yesterday. I am a veteran myself. I can only imagine what it was like in Iraq. I never got a chance to experience it at all. My years spent in the military are very fond in my memory. It takes a lot to be a soldier a mother, a father, a husband, a wife, a friend and many more hats that we all have to wear. Dear Micheal, may god continue to shine his light on you. You are truly missed. God's speed to the entire Dickey family..... Close
Lost a part of me / Michael Moody (Brothers of War )
My brother was one of those angels that you have on earth and you was proud to know him. If I knew the night before he passed that it would be my last time talking to him I would have said more. There is not a day that I don't think about him being here but I know that he would want me to be strong even though its hard sometimes. I still laugh and think about the times we shared and how everyone used to get both of our names mixed up since they always confused us. To the family I keep ya'll in my prayers and in my heart.

I'm Thankful For You / Diandra Frierson (Cousin)
"If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again." My mind led me to you today actually it's been there since November 1st. Often times you come to mind and it sadden's me that I 'll never find you at Aunt Lou's house or in the "street" as we often liked to be Smiling and laughing at something we've taken to the extreme! haha! Ha! Seriously though as we prepare for thanksgiving I must say I'm thankful to have had you in my life my only wish is that I didn't have to say "had"...
I am so sorry to hear about Michael. Our son Sgt. David Beezley also served in Afghanistan and Iraq with the 82nd Airborne. He came back with PTS also and shortly after his discharge committed suicide. Fortunatly he was not married or have any children. The bad thing is he did it right in front of his girlfriend and created major problems for her. Our prayers and thoughts are with you as we know what you have gone through and are going through.

My Precious Son / Azilee DeeDee Dickey (Mother)
Not a day goes by that I don't miss you. I look at your picture every day and wish that you were here. It has been 3 years and it seems like yesterday. There are days I can look at you and smile and other days it just breaks my heart. I know I shall never get over losing your presence but you are always with me in my heart. I know God came back and claimed his beautiful Son , for you had been on loan to us from him. You were my baby. Parents aren't suppose to bury their children. Enrick is you all over again. His mannerism, his conversations, his smile, that's you Michael. I love you then, now and always. One day we shall meet again on that distant shore. Keep a watchful eye over us, we still need you. Love Ma!

My ACE BOON COON / Quanda Boykin (FRIEND)
Mike, I knew you a long, long time and I would never thought that your life would end so so soon... I watch you as you grew up from a little boy in advanced classes to the military with wife and a beautiful little boy. I miss you and your smile and the way you picked on my "THUMP" 15inch speaker. I miss you a lot in general, so I can't even imagine how MISHA and ENRIQUE feel. No matter what, we still love you and we know that where you at now...there is no more pain to bear. Close

My ACE! / Diandra Frierson (Cousin)
So I know folks get tired of hearing about Michael Terrence "Tricky" Dickey everyday (But I don't care), because thats just how much I talk about you. When making reference to anything I always bring up something we've done together....the 3 stooges (you, me, and chelle) I used to look forward to coming to Aunt Lou's house knowing yall would be there,and when I would come and yall were in Sumter I would be sad! So I would go in your room and play nintendo! :-)
You took time with me...you always looked out for me, and me being the only child I often claim my cousins as my brothers and sisters. You taught me how to dribble, how to shoot, right outside Aunt Lou's house, you introduced me to things I wouldn't have done, and I'm thankful because it made who I am to day.....If I could turn back time, I would try to be in contacy with you as often as I could, I'm a living witness that you can never take a day for granted...Know that I love you, I'm thinking of you, and I'm always laughing at the time we've had......remember when you, me, and chelle, were on the swingset...and it was just about torn up, but us being who we were we had to finish tearing it up......I know you didn't think it was funny but we laughed when we pretended to have an earthquake as you fell through the cracks! Okay so u got mad, but we laughed about it years later!!!!
Gone, but not forgotten!!! Cuz I think about you everyday! :-) Close
TO THE BEST BROTHER IN THE WORLD / MICHELLE DICKEY (SISTER)
I KNOW YOU'RE LOOKING DOWN AT ME AND THINKING I'VE LOST MY MIND. I REALLY HAVE. NOT MUCH MATTERS ANYMORE SINCE YOU LEFT. I JUST LIVE FOR THE MOMENT. NO ONE WILL EVER UNDERSTAND HOW CLOSE WE WERE AND HOW MUCH I MISS AND LOVE YOU. I STILL CRY ALL THE TIME FOR YOU. I WISH YOU WERE HERE. RIGHT NOW I'M JUST GOING DOWN AND LOSING MY MIND. FIRST MY FATHER, THEN MY GRANDFATHERS, THEN YOU. LIFE IS NOT THE SAME AND WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT THE ONE PERSON WHO WOULD DEFEND ME THROUGH ANYTHING. I MISS YOU AND I LOVE YOU. Close
A year has passed, but it's still unbelievable I miss....my ace....the one who always looked after me....my rock......will ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED....you know it's hard not to ask why or what if because we are only human, but I know God can help me cope. I found this poem and It sums up how I feel........ You Meant So Much by Cassie Mitchell You meant so much to all of us You were special and that's no lie You brightened up the darkest day And the cloudiest sky
Your smile alone warmed hearts Your laugh was like music to hear I would give absolutely anything To have you well and standing near
Not a second passes When you're not on our minds Your love we will never forget The hurt will ease in time
Many tears I have seen and cried They have all poured out like rain I know that you are happy now And no longer in any pain. I LOVE YOU MIKE!!!!!!!!!!

Touched by your devotion / Bill Schwartz (former member of Guard Unit )
I was inputing a message and may have sent it by accident. Delete that "blank" mesage if it went. I met you (Emisha) at the credit union the other day and was very touched by your love and devotion to Michael. Thanks for sharing this website with me. It has meant even more to me as I used to be a member of the battalion that Michael served our country as a member of in Iraq. I did not know him. bacause I got out of the National Guard nine years ago, but feel that the LORD made me aware of his story for a purpose. I plan to stay connected in the future by this web-site and to keep you and your precious son in my thoughts and prayers. Here is my prayer for you and your family at this anniversary of his passing from this world.
Num 6:24-26 The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace."

Dear Emisha and Enrick,
Time lessens pain they say. But the pain that I have witnessed and observed among individuals with PTSD does not lessen for a long time.
I am so sorry that Michael passed over the veil and left you and your beautiful son without his physical presence. But he is near -- he does watch -- he does his son smile and very likely talks in his ear at night when he is asleep and dreaming.
I lost a brother at age 37 to PTSD due to childhood abuse and teenage hospital trauma.
I work with individuals with PTSD but not from being in the military. But I have in the past and I love everyone of them.
There is a lot on your shoulders Emisha...but you will make it. I am so sorry for the pain and loss that you are left with.
I believe in Angels and I believe you and your son are surrounded by them. Blessings to you both!
May God bless and keep you close / Ellen (Misha's friend )Read >>

Dear Misha, I wish I had a magic wand that could change things for you. I would do it in an instant. I have no magic words to tell you either. Only know that you and Enrick are in my heart and prayers. I am glad for you that you have little Enrick. The smiles of a child are irreplaceable. May he give you joy everyday. My wish for you is that peace and happiness come again. Love and prayers, Ellen Close
