Know that with the passing time will come relief. That though the pain may stay there soon will come a day when we can say HIS name and be at peace.

In GOD WE TRUST / Colleen
We put our trust in god. That is how our hearts can be at rest in a tumultuous society. our trust should not be in a nation, economy or politics. It is in god. Trust can only develop through time and struggle. If our trust is in people, things or circumstances it will be failed. Trust that is honest and sincerly placed in God will not fail. Close
TO ALL THE FRIENDS,FAMILY, AND ESPECIALLY DETECTIVE VERECCHIO AND HIS DETECTIVE ASSOCIATES WE THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS FOR ALL THE HOURS OF HARD WORK YOU PUT IN TO BRING JUSTICE IN THE DEATH OF OUR SON MICHAEL.WE KNOW THAT THIS WILL NOT BRING HIM BACK,BUT AT LEAST WE KNOW THAT THESE THOUGHTLESS NO REGARD FOR THE LIFE OF OUR SON, OR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO THIS FAMILY WILL PAY .AND I HOPE IT WILL BE WITH THEIR LIVES. THEN I WILL KNOW THAT THEY COULD NEVER PUT ANOTHER FAMILY THROUGH THE DEVESTATION AND HEARTBREAK THAT THEY HAVE PUT US THROUGH NOW AND FOREVER. I KNOW WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO, BUT AT LEAST WE KNOW THAT JUSTICE HAS BEGUN,AND FOR THIS WE THANK YOU.

One of those days . . . / Lanie
Hi Mike. I always know by the time I wake up on the morning, usually on my way to work, what days I'm going to totally loose it. I feel like you take over and insist that I turn my attention to you - so typical:) I wish I could figure out a way to go tomorrow - I normally have a lot of flexibility with work but I have a stupid class . . .
Just wanted to say hi and that I miss you. It's even harder to manage the grief with all of these hormones! Please take care of my baby until I meet him. Close
TO OUR SON / MOM
MICHAEL,WHEN I CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL DADDY HAD A WONDERFUL SURPRISE FOR US. HE BUILT A BEAUTIFUL PLANT GARDEN ON YOUR BACK PATIO. HE PLANTED A RODADENDRAN BUSH AND ENCASED IT IN STONE. WITH A STEPPING STONE THAT SAYS "IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY AND MEMORIES A LANE WE WOULD WALK RIGHT UP TO HEAVEN AND BRING YOU HOME AGAIN" MICHAEL DADDY LOVED YOU WITH ALL HIS BEING AND HE MISSES AND MOURNS YOU EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY. YOU WERE THE PRIDE OF HIS LIFE. YOU WERE A WONDERFUL SON.NEVER A DULL MOMENT. AND WE MISS THAT SO MUCH. WE ARE LOST WITHOUT YOU. PLEASE SEND HIM A SIGN TO EASE HIS PAIN. YOUR FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR US AND YOU SHOULD BE PROUD THAT YOU LEFT SUCH AN IMPACT ON US ALL. YEARS AGO A DOCTOR SAID YOU WERE WHAT THEY CALL A GOLDEN CHILD. HE WAS SO RIGHT!!!!!! BE AT PEACE TILL WE ARE ALL TOGETHER AGAIN, AND I KNOW YOU WERE IN THAT HOSPITAL WITH ME. THANK YOU SON. Close
signs from above / Colleen
On Fri march 20th I went to see psychic medium Theresa Roba. she was phenomenal and yes mike did come though. During this meeting Theresa asked if we were close with mikes mom when we responded yes she told me to have mikes mom call her and she would speak with her for FREE. ( Thats how genuine this woman is). Over the weekend i had thought about and intent on calling mrs Thierry but just never got a chance to pick up the phone, so I walk into work on Mon. morning and find none other than mrs thierry to be the first name on my patient list. I hope I did what i was "assigned" to do that day.
Thanks for visiting in my dream last night. It was so nice to see your face. I was at a party and kept asking where you were. I went outside and was on the beach at night. You were swimming in the ocean. I wanted to go in with you but by the time I got to the water you had walked out. You just looked at me, touched my face, and smiled. It was awesome. I had my really short hair again, like the old days. It was such a vivid dream and it left me with an incredible feeling of comfort and peace. Thank you. I'll always miss you more than words can describe. Please always remain with your friends and family. Don't ever leave us and keep giving us signs of hope and love. Miss you more than ever,

Thank you everyone for attending the benefit. It was a huge success. We raised a lot of money for the scholarship fund in Mike's name. I know Mike was there in spirit and I hope he had as much fun as the rest of us. Thanks again for sharing in that special day with us. It was worth the time & effort put into it. Love you all.- Jaime
Thinking of you Mike / Vivian Baldwin (Cousin)
I was thinking about you today and I laugh everytime I think about the time my Joey camr home on leave from the Army and you were at the top of the steps and Joe put his hand out to shake yours and you fell down the steps and landed in front of hand all Joe Could say was "what's up Dude" and we all laughed ourselves silly.
That was hard! / Jaime
Mike, I just did the hardest thing ever. I had to go to Morrell & Knight's Tavern to give the bartender new flyer's for the beef~n~beer. I tried not to do it alone, but you know how that goes. Ry would have came, but we had no one to watch Gianna. The benefit is only three weeks away and people need the new information for donations. WOW. I never thought it would be that upsetting. Of course I haven't been to, what you would call, "your bars", since you died. It wouldn't be right to be there without you. The hardest thing was keeping the tears back when I talked to our mutual friends at KT. I was going to stay and have a drink with everyone, but they kept asking about arrests and your murder. I couldn't do it. I had to get out of there. I almost lost it. Actually, I did loose it, but not until after I got out of there. This was all but an hour ago so I'm still not OK. Please give me the strength to go forward. I cant believe for the life of me that someone who meant so much to me for about 16yrs is gone. Life's not fair sometimes. I miss you so much. I miss your voice. I miss your pacing down my hallway. I miss the crumb you made all over the house. I miss a lot more that I can't mention. I just don't know who to go to with all of this anger and anguish. I don't like others seeing me week or crying. You were the one I broke down to. Now what? This sucks. Bring me someone to fall back on, like we would do with each other. I can't even write anymore. I am sick to my stomach. Close

it reminded me of you an anthony / Katie
A brief candle; both ends burning An endless mile; a bus wheel turning A friend to share the lonesome times A handshake and a sip of wine So say it loud and let it ring We are all a part of everything The future, present and the past Fly on proud bird You're free at last.
written en route to the funeral for his friend, Ronnie Van Zant of the band, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
I went to see your parents yesterday. I love being near them because I feel closer to you. It makes me think of all the great times we had, when times were really good. Your mom gave me some things you wrote. I haven't read it all yet. I have to prepare myself a little bit. I started and I had to stop. I know it'll be tough to get through it, but I'm glad to have those memories of our time together. I miss your smile and your voice and the light that you brought into this world. Stay with us. We're going to see Roger Waters on June 1st. I'm really only going because of you. I've seen him a lot of times already and didn't really have to go again, but I couldn't miss this one for the world. I know you'll be there. We'll all be thinking of you.
Measuring a summer's day. I only find it slips away to grey. The hours, they bring me pain.
