  10. Kathy Magness, says

    Michael was devoted to his bus students and always expressed a great concern for their welfare. He went the extra mile to check on them or express concerns if he thought there was any special need for his student families. Michael built special relationships with students that will stay with them the rest of their lives. He was willing to transport students on field trips and seemed to enjoy them as much as the children. He will be greatly missed by his school family and friends. I will always remember his great stories and devotion to his job.

  11. Annette Ward, Charlotte, AR says

    Mr. Mott today we signed off the bus for you, and talked about the turnip patch and how we would miss your stories. You will be missed by your bus kids, more than you can imagine. Thank you for all you did to make kids lives better. Cynthia, he will sure be missed by us at the Bus Shop. May the Good Lord bless you and keep you through this time. Annette Ward

  12. Jennifer Reynolds , Southaven, MS says

    Cynthia, Brandon, Loren and Uncle Eugene I was completely heartbroken to hear the news of Michael’s passing. He was a very special soul called home far too early. I know his absence on this earth will be felt profoundly by many, but his memory will live on in the wonderful stories shared by those who knew and loved Michael and by those whose lives he touched. Keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers.

  13. Sandra Norris , Southside Arkansas says
