To the family and friends of Mike DeStefano, I would like to extend my sincere condolences. The Bible assures us that "Our Heavenly Father is near to those that are broken at heart and those who are crushed in spirit he saves". Recalling happy memories of the times you had together will help you to keep smiles on your faces and joy in your hearts.

To the family and friends you all have my deepest symphaty for your loss. Death has a way of catching us off guard regardless of the time. Our Creator created us to live and live forever. That is why no matter how common death is it is always difficult to take. God will one day stop things such as mankind dying and tears and all sorts of unhappiness. Until that time we rely upon God through prayer to get through these difficult times. May God keep you in His comfort.

Mike was just a brilliant,genuinely funny, unique, one in a million guy. My wife & I were thoroughly amused when we caught Mike's routine on the Last comic standing. Hilarious guy! He shared his talent with the world at a time when my wife was fighting her 2nd (and different), cancer diagnosis. It was a blessing that we happened to catch the show, although we were saddened that he didn't win. Tremendous talent!! He lifted our spirits beyond measure and we were looking forward to seeing more of him. To all of Mike's family,we feel your pain. The mold was definitely broken. Rest in peace, Mike. We love you!

“If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?” This question was asked by the man Job long ago. (Job 14:14) Job had faith in the promises made by God. One of those promises was that a reunion with our deceased loved ones is possible right here on earth, under the best of conditions.

God promised: “Your dead ones will live… They will rise up.” He also said: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29) What a joyful occasion this will be.

May keeping in mind the prospect of seeing Mike again and memories of wonderful moments shared with him, bring you comfort now and in the future. The laughter he brought to many will not be forgotten.
March 08, 2011
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
March 08, 2011
You were a 'GIFT' from above, whose LIGHT will continue to shine in the hearts of all those you touched. God bless you my friend till we meet again...
March 08, 2011

about six months ago I heard "Franny's Last Ride" on NPR. I do a lot of workshops on Spirituality and spiritual retreats and things like that--I teach spirituality in a seminary--and I hold up "Franny's Last Ride" as one of the best examples of contemporary spirituality Mike DeStefano was a remarkable man--it would probably surprise him to hear it, but a remarkable example of genuine holiness (as opposed to empty religiosity) I thank God for the chance to have heard of his love for his wife God be with him he and his family are in my prayers and I will continue to use "Franny's Last Ride" as a measure of spiritual maturity
