Shiela, I’m so sorry. I was dealing with both Cathy and Michell wrinkles death when I heard about mikes passing. I’m Sure he wanted to hang on a little longer. As I will soon be 65. It’s not that old I remember the day I met Mike. And we used that song. Girls just want to have fun. In. Your radio ad! Cuidado! Don’t let that radio station kill you ,, It’s not worth it. Call me if I can be of service.

So hate to hear of Mike's passing. He was such a promoter of Big Spring, Howard County and West Texas.

My mother, Marj Carpenter, absolutely adored Mike and Sheila!!! There was never a birthday in her latter years that Mike and Sheila didn't bring a cake to KBEST radio station to celebrate with her after her "Riding Fence" program. Both Mike and Sheila were so interested in the history of Big Spring and would enjoy all of the old stories. Sheila, you know Marj will be already telling everyone in heaven that Mike is their #1 friend and supporter. What joys Mike brought with Sheila right by his side to so many folks in Big Spring! He will be missed, never forgotten, and a legend in his own time to all who knew him. Love to you, Sheila!

Mike Abusaab was an amazing man! I worked at the Sonic on Gregg St for my first real job, for many years. During that time Mike and Sheila Abusaab treated all of us with kindness and were always willing to give advice! Sheila was also my Spanish teacher in high school during this same time frame, such an amazing teacher. Mike and Sheila were always so sweet and they would call me over to their vehicle and tell me how good of a job I was doing and would always ask how I was doing in the world. This couple has donated to so many organizations and scholarships throughout our community and other communities! They definitely left a lasting impression on my heart as well as many others throughout the years. Thank you both for having such kind hearts and good intentions for everyone around you! My sincerest condolences to Sheila and the rest of the family and community! Gone but certainly never forgotten! May you Rest In Peace Mike!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We owned KBST AM/FM and KBTS FM stations from 2004 to 2014. We got to know Mike initially as a customer and were immediately impressed by his personality, business acumen, and commitment to the Big Spring community. He was a man of his word, one for whom contracts were almost unnecessary. As we got to know Mike more -- learning about his immigration from Jordan, work during college, and start at Sonic – his success became even more impressive. Equally important, we began to see the man behind the business, discovering all of the philanthropic work that he and Sheila did in the area. When we sold the stations to the Abusaabs, along with Malinda and Danny Flenniken, we knew that the stations would not only be maintained but that they’d play an even greater role in the community. Few Mike Abusaabs exist in this world but Big Spring, Texas had one. Rest in Peace, Mike! - The Rhattigan Family

Sheila, you and Mike are special people. You both are so special to Jim and I. Just remembering our many times together make me emotional and bring a smile. I can never watch or hear a quote from "O Brother, Where Art Thou " without thinking of watching that movie with you guys and all the laughing we did then and after when quoting it at random times through the years. You both hold such a special place in our hearts. Sending love and hugs, thoughts and prayers. Opie
