  • Michael \"Johnny Grunge\" Durham

    In writing this review, I want readers to not only read and understand Johnny as a Pro-Wrestler but has a person whom was loved very much. You see, Michael (as he is known to me), is my first cousin, so when he came home to Sulphur, Louisiana, he was not the big time professional wrestler that most people think of, but just one of the family members. You see, Michael was only seven years older than me and then the next cousin is like 10 years younger than me, so for a long time it was just him and I. Although as being kids we were just like any other fighting all of the time, as we grew up we became very good friends, not just cousins, in fact with us both being only children we were like brother and sister to each other. Over the last few years since Teddy died, Michael just was not the same. His wrestling went down quite a bit and he gained a \"few\" extra pounds. You could always tell he really missed Teddy.

    When Michael left here on Wednesday to go back to his home in Georgia, he was going to Japan to wrestle for ten days and then he was moving back home to Sulphur to be with his famil again. Before he left he told me to just hold on for a couple of more weeks, and then it would be like old times and Mike, my cousin only, would be home for good.

    Of course, finding out on Thursday morning that he had passed away, just made me realize that you never know when it will be your turn to go.

    So, my main point is to let Michael know that I love him very much and he will be missed desperately here at home! I also want all of the readers to know something special...Never Take Your Life For Granted, because you never know when it will be your last and then you would not have had the chance to tell your loved ones those three simple little words...\"I Love You\"

    Rest in peace mike and now you can start kicking teddy\'s butt and all of the fallen wrestler\'s before you.

    Always remember I love you,

    Margo \"Toot\" Broussardmoreless
