My dearest Michael, it has been 6 years and 2 days since you left me. It still hurts today just like it did then. I miss you with all my heart. I keep you picture with me all the time. We have several throughout the house, in my trucks and in my office. I carry the key to your 03 Ford on my key ring. Just hoping you'll call and need me to come unlock the truck for you. I would give anything for that to happen. You were the light of my life. I miss you so much. I still do not understand and I never will. I ear your Carhart jack when it is cold enough. I wish it was colder more often so I could wear it more. I miss your smell, I miss your hugs, I miss your kisses and I really miss your "I love you dad" It is really hard to sit here and type with tears running down my face. I visit the cemetery every week. I clean the head stones of you and Nolan. I have bought the plot next to you so that someday I can be next to you forever. I love you son! From the first day you were born until the day you left me I always loved you, never did I not. I miss you with all my heart. Dad
P.S. Leave the light on for me.

God bless your family. My last post did not let me put my name.

I think of our kids often and knowing your dad through hospice I got to know a little about you. I often think of your family and how something like the loss of a loved one (you) affects everything about our life. We fall apart and sometimes never come back. Michael I know you were loved by your family and they miss you dearly. Keep smiling on the other side because in my heart I feel there is a better place than here and you like my son are there looking down on us! Bless your family and know I think of you all often.

My dear baby son. I miss and love you so much. I'm sure you are watching from above as Cole and Wes continue to grow. They both remind me of you in many ways. Wes, for the way he collects things and his shyness. Also, his furry neck. Cole, for his love of sports and his kind heart. I feel your presence strongly. See you soon, my Love.

My dearest son and best friend,
It's been three years since you left this earth to be with Jesus. This morning, I visited one of your favorite places, Templeton High School football field. I'm sure you saw me as I cried uncontrollably and released balloons into the gloomy sky.I will join you in heaven someday, but until then, I feel that my job here on earth is to educate others. Prayerfully, I can prevent at least one other family from experiencing this excruciating pain that I experience with every breath.
Although you are physically gone, we continually feel your presence. I love you so much!

Tomorrow you will have been gone for three years. Hard to believe and yet we know it is. I have so many good memories and some not so good. I know I made mistakes and didn't understand what you were going through and I was hard on you. I just wanted you to be happy and healthy. I just hope you know how much you were loved and how much you are missed. We love you our gentle boy. Love Aunt Peggy

My Dearest son Michael, Its been 3 years since you left us. They say it gets easier as time goes on. That is not true! I miss you every moment of everyday. I miss your smile, your smell, your hugs, your kisses on my cheek, your "I love you dad" and your sweet voice. Life will never be the same, never. You were and amazing gentle child, with a the biggest heart of any man I ever met.
I spend my days and many nights wondering what I could have done to change the outcome. They tell me there was nothing I could have done. I'm not sure I believe that. I try to learn some each day about the addiction you suffered some. Thinking that I might learn something to help me understand.
As of right now I have learned nothing to help me feel better about all this.
I do know that you are no longer tormented by the addiction from which you suffered for so many years. That does give me some peace.
You know how much I loved you and what you meant to me. of that I am sure.
I work every day to keep you memory alive and talk to as many people as I can about the addiction and what it did to this father. Maybe I can make a difference is someone else's life.
I miss you son! You are forever in my heart!
With all my love. Dad
PS, leave the light on for me!

My Dear Son,
My life will never be the same without you. On this New Year's Day, I sit here crying and thinking about my best New Year's Day ever.After dinner, you, Jake, Craig, Scott, James and Bryce proceeded to go out back behind the shop where all of the fun began. For hours, you guys looked around and found things to blow up and launch. Well, I didn't need those huge Easter eggs and flamingos anyhow. The fun for me was watching you have fun.
I miss you so much. They say it will get easier with time, but it is not. Part of me is missing. I love you.

I'm not sure how to even begin. There are so many things I miss mikey monkey. Brownies don't taste the same, I haven't eaten chicken Alfredo in forever, and I can't buy a damn scratcher wo laughing thinking of all the money and time we wasted in the 76 parking lot in Atascadero. I remember the night I met you. The Albertsons parking lot. I remember coming home from Mexico excited for our first date. It was to the fair. You pulling up in your white Chevy. I was the coolest chick in town. We had so many amazing memories from that day forward. Football games, Allan Jackson, Vegas, pismo dunes, taking your dads ford out (sorry gene but we never broke it) Mexico! We had some amazing adventures. We were two of the luckiest kids around. If I could go back and talk to my younger self I would say hold on to this bc it doesn't get any better. These are the best times of your life and I'm so glad they were with you.
