Prayers please for Brian "Bam_SHO" Michael......
« on: May 04, 2022, 04:46:32 PM »
Not sure if the news made its respective rounds since this morning, however, Brian called me 1st thing this morning to let me know of some pretty terrible developments in his ongoing battle with cancer.....

Cut to the chase, his medical team advised that his cancer has spread to numerous areas throughout his body, and that the decision was made to stop treatment, as there's nothing more that can be done to save him.

He was in tears. Scared. Upset and rightfully so. I was at a loss for words, but truly appreciated him reaching out to me personally to let me know he isn't expecting to be around long term.

He made a comment that I wouldn't see his ugly mug no more. I replied "So not true my friend. I have plenty of pictures to remind me of our shenanigans, that will tie me over until it is my time to go. In fact, I fully expect you to be standing at the gates of heaven above, waiting for me, and as I pass through those gates, I fully expect you to give me a swift crack on my ass and welcome me inside accordingly".

He laughed at that. So that's good. Just tried to make him happy. Even if for just a brief moment.

I'm sure Brian would appreciate any of you reaching out here, posting a message or two and wish him, his wife, and only daughter your prayers as they'll all need them for sure.

Words are always hard to find in situations like this. However, I hope Brian and his family find solace during this time.

Thank you for posting this.  I had hoped for better news, but the fight's not over yet.  Sometimes prayers and faith make miracles happen.  Hope for the best, either way.

Heavenly Father I come to you standing in the gap for and with family friends for brother Brian. As you are all knowing you know our selfish desires are for him to remain among us. But let your will be done. Comfort his family as only you can. In Jesus name, amen

Thanks Scott.

Unfortunately, Brian's wife responded to a text message that I sent to Brian, on his phone, wishing him a Happy Father's Day.

Brian was not able to reply himself.

His wife stated that she expected Brian to go any day now, but that he was resting comfortably, medicated, etc.

She also stated that Brian cherished all of his friendships he made within the SHO community and that all of our support had allowed him to remain with us, for as long as he has.

This info was current as of Sunday 06/19/22.

R.I.P. Brian "Bam_SHO" Michael. 06/24/2022.

The good Lord called him overnight, with him having taken his last breath at 1:15am.

I feel at loss. But I also feel happy for him, knowing he is eternally at peace and rid of all his physical ailments, pains, and challenges. He will be a bright shining star to guide us all as we traverse our own physical lives, until we too, pass.

Please pray for his dear surviving wife Kris, and his adult daughter Kate. They could use our prayers as they manage their loss.

Thank you to all.

If any you have any pictures of Brian, please do share/post them here. I will pass them along to Kris.

If/when I find out details on services, I will re-post here for those desiring to attend.

Brian "Bam_SHO" Michael was one of the biggest SHO enthusiast and a staunch supporter of the platform, and one hell of a guy. It was pleasure to know and be friends with Brian and his family. He will be missed greatly. There will always be an empty space at Ford Nationals with the passing of Brian. Last time I got to see him was when he came down and stayed the night so we could hit up a private MIR event which was blast (even though they way over prepped the track... ). Please say a prayer for his family through this incredibly difficult time.

As BPD1151 mentioned, please take a minute to post any fond memories or pictures of Brian you may have!
