Deepest sympathy to your family. Officer Michalski was certainly a man of integrity and great faith. He was such a great role model. If we could all be like him this world would be a much better place. Watched his testimony which proves he is enjoying the splendors of heaven with our Lord. He was greeted with "well done my good and faithful servant." He is alive and well at this very moment. Your hearts are broken at such a great loss as he is not physically among us anymore. My heart aches for your grief. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. In heaven a thousand years is a second, but here on earth when we lose someone we love a second seems like a thousand years. You WILL see him again someday for all eternity. He will turn around and it will be like only one second has passed. May God continue to comfort you and give you peace during this most difficult time.

I did not know Mike Michalski but he sure was an amazing person, roll model, mentor and very passionate about this career. I will be thinking of all the family members as they go through such a difficult time and loss of someone's presence that will be so missed. This city is going to be hurting for a longtime and hopefully something good will come of this what Mike was always trying to teach to others. We all need to get a long better and to respect one and other. May God bless all of you and rest in peace Mike. Lynn and Mark Fuerst, Wauwatosa, WI

I can only imagine what it will be like
When I walk, by your side
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When you face is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
Surrounded by You glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of You be still
Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
I can only imagine when that day comes
When I find myself standing in the Son
I can only imagine when all I would do is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine
I can only imagine

To Officer Michalski's family and friends. I'm so sorry for your loss, there are no words that can take the emptiness and hurt away. Have faith in the Lord. I never met Michael though I wish I had. My son is a Deputy and there isn't a day that passes that I don't ask our savior Jesus Christ to watch over him. Now, I know I have someone else watching over him as well, I'm sure Michael is their new angel. My Christ be with you today and every day, In Jesus name we pray.

Words can not express how very sorry I am for the loss of your Soul Mate, Father, Brother and Family member. You have been in my heart and in my prayers all week as well as today and everyday. I have cried all day and have kept you all close to my heart. Just know that Michael touched so many hearts and saved and protected so many lives and made us always feel safe and he will always remain watching over and protecting us from heaven. May God bless you and keep you. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

To Susan Michalski and Family -- I've been searching for days and there don't seem to be any words to offer in comfort, not for the sheer depth of your loss. Please just know how very, very sorry Mark Salentine, Timothy Salentine and Linda Stieber are for your tragic loss and that we've been holding you close in our hearts. I pray that healing will come and that you have many wonderful memories to bring you peace. Much Love, Linda Stieber

Sincere condolences to the Michalski family. We've known Mike since he was in kindergarten at Washington school. He was part of our St. Joe's "Sandlot Crew." Always cracking jokes and smiling, always positive, and always willing to help with anything--he was definitely one of the good guys.

Your family is in our prayers,
