For my whole childhood you have
been so VERY sick. And for a long time,
out of annoyance I stayed away from
you. Hoping you'd "get better."
Because, as a child I thought-
"That" was how things worked.
And then one day, (as an adult)
G-ma Sue convinced me there is
nothing to be afraid of and that
ALL WE have IS FAMILY!
She also told me that sick people
need WELL people too.
To give them hope ,inspiration and
quality of life.
I was cautious and g-ma was right!
Because that very day, timidly I
sung some of YOUR favorite songs ,
and WE talked about when YOU and
Kim 1st met and when YOU bought my
brother that Go-cart.
It was candy-apple RED and would
fly (in it's time)
And how YOU enjoyed seeing me and
Jimmy getting in trouble with it !
We really had
and it was So special to me!
And I think "that moment"
was special for you too.
It was a wonderful day!
And after all my fears and anxiety
In "that moment" I grew up!
I came away singing to you and the
light in your eyes just moved me
Thank You !
I was enlightened by YOU !
And whether YOU know it or not YOU
helped me Grow-up in that "moment"
and realize what life IS all about!
And I just want to Thank You again !
Thank You for strength and
knowledge and an appreciation for
I will cherish "OUR MOMENT" for the
rest of my life.
and I love you Mike, Donna Jean
and I thank you too grandma for
helping me appreciate a wonderful
life and an inspirational man, my
uncle, MIKE !
ILOVE YOU !
and Mike YOU WILL be missed!
God speed and God bless!
One of my favorite memories is when
you were 3 years old and went to a
Girl Scout talent show with me one
night. I helped you climb up on a
chair and you sang: "A fawwen tah,
dat's what you ahh. Da twinkaw in
yo eye came fwom da sky. You must
have stwayed fwom da milky way. A
fawwen tah, dat's what you ahh."
That's what you were. I hate that
you had to be so sick for so long
and had to suffer so. I hate that
you were so lonely at the end. I
hate that you ever felt that you
didn't have anything to offer
anybody. It hurt me to hear you
say that. But it was never ever
true. As your cousin Kathy said,
you were "one of the most loving
people I've ever known." your
I know you are gone on Home, I only
can imagine what it must have been
the minute you walked into Heaven's
door and what a glorious time...it
was to see Jesus face to face and
as He must have led you on to see
all of our beloved ones already
there. What an amazing time! I
just wished that I wouldn't have
put off another minute so that I
could have spoke to you before you
were gone so that I could have told
you that I do love you with all my
heart. It's always what we put off
that can't be done tomorrow. You
were a special person to Jerry & I
when we were growing up and when we
came to visit you guys. Me or him
will never forget those times. You
always made us laugh with your
humour and songs. I can see your
smile. These memories will linger
on and never be forgotten. But,
until we meet in that Forever land.
Know I love you now and always.
Your 1st cousin, Karla
You wonderful son, so pure and
precious! We had a very special
relationship. We shared so many
lovely moments and good things,
even a kidney. God is so good to
have given the doctors the wisdom
to do the surgery. The scripture
says, "I am fearfully and
wonderfully made." Mike, I shall
always treasure you in my heart and
praise God for your sweet life.
You were the most remarkable man
I've ever known and I am so blessed
that God allowed you to be mine,
even for a little while. You
fought a good fight, you kept the
faith. May God bless you and keep
you in his arms until we meet
again. I shall always cherish your
memory. With love and thanksgiving
to our Heavenly Father for such a
rare and precious son. Your sweet
spirit will always be with me.
Life was hard, the road was rough
and rocky, but you would'nt have
missed the dance. What a giant of
a man! What can I say, except that
I loved you. God bless your
family! Love forever.

crossroads(inside between me and 4

Sorry for any problems i ever
caused. You were a great man and
will be missed. I will try my best
to help keep frank outta trouble

you will be carried on.
Then I said,"Behold, I come; In the
scroll of the book it is written of
me. I delight to do Your will, O my
God, And Your law is within my
heart." Psalm 40:7-8
You were my hero Mike. Rest in peace
now with God. love kim
You will be missed, your singing,
your picking on the guitar and over
