Two years in a couple of days Mike. A year back I looked at all the dumb conversations you, Dan, Josh, and I through text messages. Laughed real hard. I hope my children grow up to be like you, I could not think of any greater success as a father to have my boys be like the man you were. I miss you big guy. We'll be up in Vermont this weekend, I'll make sure to stop by and leave a drink for you. Keep holding that spot at the bar until we get there. RIP.
My beloved son...my heart...my soul...I am shattered. I love you with every beat of my heart and miss you with every breath I take. I am so proud to have been your Mom. You made me proud you were my son. You exceeded every dream I had for you. I will never let you go. Just waiting until we are together again in our eternal Heavenly home.
Love you buddy. Miss you everyday.

A tragic and sorrowful loss for family, friends and community. The world needs more people like Michael and can spare none. Our prayers are with him.
To the Zemanek family, Friends and Brothers and Sisters of Law Enforcement & Fire. I had the liberty of meeting Mike not so long ago and worked with him a some special details.
I will say it pain me among many others who only had the chance to know him for a very short period of time. God bless you my friend.
Mary and Jerry, I was proud to to know Mike. I felt privileged to receive the genuine "Hey Mr Stewart" when I saw him around town, and then catch up on the latest. He was a great kid and a fine man! I am so sorry!
Dan, I understand your pain! Having lost my older brother also, I know that faith and time helps heal. If I can do anything please let me know!
The Zemanek and Norwich families have lost an amazing young man. Prayers to all who were touched by this loss.

We are truly diminished by your loss Michael.
I consider myself fortunate to have worked with Mike in his high school years. My heart goes out to the Zemanek family.
On My Honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law. These are strong word to live by. Michael has accomplished them all in the short time he was with us here on earth. As a youth leader of our Boy Scout Troop Mike has learned, followed and passed on these values to many. Your memory and HONOR will always be in our hearts.
Rest in peace my friend.
Our daughter Tara, was Mike's friend. They worked together at the VHS learn to swim program. We were fortunate to know him as he visited our home quite frequently. Words cannot express our sorrow. We send our thoughts and prayers.
You are now with the Angels in Heaven...Praying for your loved ones...
Your time with us was cut way too short, especially for someone with so many gifts to offer those who knew you. Rest in peace my brother.
Mary - I am so truly sorry to hear about your loss with Michael. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May all his accomplishments, love, and inspiration that he has left behind help heal you through this difficult time.
Zemanek Family (Glenn, Maryanne & Dan);

Mary,Gerry and Daniel and family, Words cannot utter the tremendous loss of someone so young and with such promise. He is serving God now and know in your hearts you'll see him again. If there is even the littlest thing I can do for you right now, let me know. I pray for all of you. Heartfelt condolences. "You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." Psalm 16
My deepest sympathies are extended to the Zemanek family and all those who knew and loved this young man. His family is a fine example of service to something other than oneself and his desire to continue that honorable tradition speaks well of the man.

I will always remember Mike as being hard working, determined, courageous and forever pursuing what makes him happy. I have great respect and pride for Mike's drive and accomplishments. My thoughts are with his family. May the memories and love you have carry you through this difficult time.
So sorry for the loss of such a handsome young man, To Mom Mary, you will always miss him, Yet close your eyes, you will feel him in your arms!!!
For every life has a purpose to fill, a purpose which us humans can seldom infer. But Michael was a gift from heaven, whose purpose was to make this world understand what love, friendship, goodness, and humbleness was all about. Goodness belongs to heaven, and I know Michael is watching us from there, bestowing his beautiful smile upon us. May his soul rest in peace.
Our hearts go out to the Zemanek family on this terrible loss.
