    May God wrap his arms of comfort around your family during this difficult time.
    His assignment here on earth is complete! And well done I must say! I leave you with these words, one of my favorite verses.
    Love, Zandra McCardell
    "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
    ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    1. Mike and Schon are the friendliest people I've ever known. Mike was a great friend with a big smile and always called me to say he was praying for me. He was a great encourager. We lift Schon up in prayer for God to give her special comfort.
      Pastor Sonny Foraker & Gilly

  2. Mike is receiving a beautiful award in heaven. His love for Jesus, his wife Schon and family was unparalleled. It was a honor to know him and he will always hold a special place in our hearts. May God Bless and tenderly hold Schon and the family in the palm of His hands.

  3. Mike was a great friend to all and I was proud to work with him in during his second career as an investigator. I learned of Mike's commitment to faith and family by observing his actions and I was inspired by his words and deeds. Mike will missed by all of us that called him friend.
    Peace be with his family in this time of loss.

  4. Mike was my cousin and therefore, one of my earliest and longest friends. Even as a young child, I remember him standing out from the crowd with his positive and helpful attitude, and his amazing smile. People were just drawn to him. And he used that to introduce them to the love of God, by sharing it and by showing it. When our Aunt died unexpectedly 15 years ago, Mike flew to Phoenix immediately and helped me plan her entire funeral and ran the numerous errands that had to be handled that week. I don't know what I would have done without him during that time. I have never forgotten that. I told him that he was too good to be human, and he, of course, gave all the glory to God. What a blessing to have Mike be our family. Thank you God for that and please hold Schon and their children close to You as they carry on. I miss you and love you Cuz. See you up there…

      This was a huge loss to our new family, our hearts are pained that his grandchildren will not get to grow up with their grampa Mike. He is a great example of how to live your life to the fullest, with God at his side.

  5. I was blessed to have known Mike during his work as an investigator. He was a great guy who always served his clients with hard work , dedication and perseverance. I will always remember the wonderful spreads of food he personally brought to our offices. He would visit and share personal stories which always glorified Jesus Christ. May God bless Schon and the entire family and may God provide peace and strength in the days ahead. Mike will be missed. My deepest sympathy.

  6. Mr. Sellars was one of the GREAT ones! He will truly be missed. I have known him for more than 10 years, while some would say "you just serviced his pool", we would say so much more. He was a friend and those aren't easy to come by.

    To the family… Please call on me if there is anything me or my family can do. I'm so so sorry for your loss.

    Schon and family:

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met Mike about a decade ago through work. While Mike was never afraid to witness, he always understood that his greatest witness was how he lived his life on a daily basis.
    May you find peace and comfort during these difficult days.

  8. I was blessed to have Mike provide professional services to my employer for over a decade until my retirement in 2010. That same year Mike invited me to work alongside him and as he taught me the challenges of being a gumshoe investigator. I learned so much in the years that followed about his business and the clients he served, which was his number one priority. However, the greatest thing Mike taught me during those long hotel stays in remote parts of Texas was about his faith in God. This man loved God, his wife and family, country and his church community. I miss you big time already my brother. My prayers are with Schon and the family that they may find peace and comfort in the days ahead.
