If tears could build a stairwell and memories were a lane, I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken no time to say good-bye . You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it means to lose you, no one will ever know.

My condolences to your family for the passing of Myke. My heart aches to know the pain you are experiencing now. You know that he is with our heavenly father. His picture tells the whole story. You are an extraordinary family.

Bob and Sam,
You were great parents, Myke is now walking to the fishing hole with his grandpa. Bob and Karin were proud of all of their kids and grandkids. Myke will be missed here but will never be forgotten. Take comfort in the fact that he is still with family and being taken care of. You know where we are if you need anything. With love and sympathy

I remember Myke in my 3rd grade class at North School. It was with a heavy heart that I suspected his affliction with MD. I remember his impish grin and his kindness toward others. I will continue to donate to the muscular dystrophy association in memory of him.

May the peace of God be with all of you in this time of mourning for you all. You spoke so fondly and lovingly of your son Michael that I feel he was a part of our family as well. Prayers go out to my friend Vicky and her family during this time. God has received another Angel. May the peace and love of the Lord be with you.
