And while the questions and concerns loved ones have regarding his death are still on everyone's minds, it was a time to just remember their son, brother, father, and friend.
"He was my brother, he was my best friend, I could always count on him," Melisa Daugherty, a close family friend, said.
Hundreds of people from all over the Big Country packed into the Bethany Baptist Church in Breckenridge to say their goodbyes.
"I see him as a brother, and that's what's so hard about today... I feel like I lost my brother," said Mike's friend, Ty Fisher. But loved one's say their fight for "Justice for Mike," is not over.
"If we could just get those questions answered, then we could start pulling together as a community, and community that backs it's police force and a police force that backs their community," said friend Shai Berry.
"We are not a community at war, we're a community in search for truth and justice."
