Carolyn Wilbanks said, “I’ve tried all day to think of the right words to say in such a horrific situation! When I think of Mike I think of a fiery, strong willed, competitive soul! I’ve never met a child so dedicated and eager to excel in basketball!
The Walker Family means so much to us! Last tournament, Mike said, “Mrs.Wilbanks, when y’all come to play us, I’m going to lock down Logan” He was such a good teammate to the boys!
Please continue to pray the Melissa, Macie, The Walker Family and his NLA C/O of 2027 teammates..Heaven gained a gem last night!
“1 Thessalonians 5:17 says pray without ceasing. In this time of tragedy please pray for the walker family! I’m having a hard time processing all this as you never expect it to happen to someone you know. I didn’t know Michael very well but I always saw you either outside shooting basketball or fishing when I drove by yalls house on my way home.
I grew up with Macie. Praying that you win this fight Mace! I’ll never forget all our memories on the basketball court! Mrs. Walker you helped me in so many ways in middle school and I’m so thankful for that! Please keep fighting! Please please please keep praying for this family. I love y’all! #WalkerStrong” said Sarah Daniel.
