Shine a Light for Mickey ~ June 25, 2011

 We all shine with our own small light….together we blaze like the sun ~ Author unknown  

June 25, 2011 marks the one year anniversary of the disappearance of Mickey Brougham. The Brougham family and Mickey’s friends invite you to leave a porch or window light lit on the night of June 25, 2011 in awareness of Mickey’s disappearance and as a show of unity that we will never stop looking for Mickey.

Mickey was a son, brother, uncle, nephew, godfather, friend and neighbor. This amazing soul has touched the lives of many people and is deeply loved and missed.

An active investigation continues and much has been learned about the days surrounding Mickey’s disappearance.
We remain grateful for all who have shared information regarding Mickey’s disappearance with the authorities and continue to encourage anyone with information to contact the Belchertown Police Department at
413-323-6655 or the Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit at 413-586-5150.   If you are considering contacting the authorities please remember that all information is helpful and will be handled discreetly and confidentially.    Nothing is “insignificant” or “unimportant”.

When someone you love goes missing, your lives are forever changed. An arduous process of investigation, research, watchfulness, grief, and healing begin. While some days and nights are long and hard to maneuver through, others are filled with hope and comforting memories of your loved one. Ultimately you pray for the day when someone, somewhere will have the courage and strength of character to shed light on the situation such that you may care for your loved one in a dignified and respectful manner.  Mickey was a generous, caring person who loved his family very much.  We all love Mickey.  We miss him, grieve his loss, and will not rest until he is found.

Please help us to provide him with the proper care and respect he deserves.

On July 10, 2010 hundreds gathered at a candlelight vigil on the Belchertown Common in support of Mickey. We are reminded of the very powerful words sung at that time from the song “Go Light Your World”  by Chris Rice.

“…. There is a candle in every soul 
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home”
Please join us in praying that the spirit moves those with information to see it in their hearts to return Mickey to us so we may provide him with a dignified burial. Please let your hearts and porch lights blaze as ours do to Bring Mickey Home.                BUCC Video

……. We are a family whose hearts are blazing 
so let’s raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times….”
