|Let the memory of Michael be with us forever|
"July 12 came and gone I tried not to think about it but happy anniversary to you. I went with Debbie and Ron and to go see Kyle. It was a nice visit with Kyle, but the trip there my copilot was not there to show me the way. And Debbie is the worst one to get directions from. And by the way I got into a fight with a neighbor that lives behind a rental about the damn fence again I guess Gary and him had a little powwow and you did build the fence on his side of the property they told me no big deal I got to get that fence stained it's starting to look really bad. I did tell the guy to take me to court about it and I will ask the judge for him to pay half since he paid nothing on the fence. The guys of pig. Well happy anniversary to you and I love you miss you!! :)"
"I want to be the first to wish you a happy Fourth of July and you missed it I went out with Paolo and Rhonda with some friends of too lake Goodwin the fireworks were amazing. July 5 we went up to the tennis court to listen to the band Debbie showed up with the kids I was really happy to see her. July 6 Taylor Tiana and Mason Mariah and Troy all showed up we went for a swim and we had dinner. I found myself telling Mason that I was his great grandma's God I fell old, I did tell Mason about his great grandpa Mike. I know he doesn't understand but I sure hope that Taylor and Tiana and them all tell him about you. Mason has a thing he has to wear gloves he loves wearing gloves I don't know what it's about but it is so funny and cute. I think they're starting to warm up to me couple times I held the baby she's cute. Troy got to play with them both in the pool it's kind of funny watching Troy be a grandpa. And I can tell watching his face he really wants to get involved with the kids. Debbie came up to the pool with Kyle kids and visit and watch all the swim. And poor Ron with all of his bad luck it start out his golf cart wouldn't run. Gary and Mark got it going to .come to find out the battery was bad. Ron health isn't very good,I hope it holds up so we can go over to visit Kyle this coming weekend. Well I'm missing you and I love you.
"It's Fathers Day
Happy Fathers Day
I just wanted to tell you how we all miss you and how we all appreciated you and you are the best father to two boys that love you with all their heart and soul. Every day I give thanks to you!
"Hi Mike - Hope you are okay wherever you are and with whatever happens afterwards. We miss you. I'm sorry Adrian is growing up without his uncle Mike. He needs good male role models and you were one of the best! Trying to sell my house now. I always liked your grounded advice...Joanie's too. You were so steady in just about everything you did & said. Hate saying "were" (past tense - very hard). Miss you loads! Life isn't the same without you here. xoxo from Adrian & Diane"
"I'm all packed and ready to go back to Washington. I had to get the pool emptied and put in new water set up pool service,they said every two yrs. I should empty it. But tell you the truth I'm second-guessing going up to Washington, I know if you were here I wouldn't be second-guessing this. But you're not here and I hate doing this by myself. I know once I get on the road maybe I will feel different,I hope. It's amazing how everybody else's life goes on and I keep feeling like I'm in this tunnel going nowhere. I keep hoping somebody will walk into my life and knox the hell out of me and change things. I played the Memorial tape the other day and Tucker did not respond to your voice like he has in the passed,it was sad for me to see tucker has forgot you. But I like hearing voice. But It was tearjerking. The neighbor down the road just lost his son his son was 52 and it was the thing that happen to you it's hard to believe that God takes people so young before their time. I think the reason why I'm so mad is because we had so much more to do. Watch over me and Tucker while were driving down the road back to Washington. Love ya!"
"It makes me happy to know that people still come and visit his site. I feel this is a place where we can talk to Mike and we can share our thoughts are joy and sadness with him. And I know if Mike could read all these thoughts of joy, sadness and everything else. His heart would be so filled with love. See Mike you are everybody's rock. You gave everybody the tools they needed to carry-on. You gave unconditional love, you always gave a hand when needed, you always listen, you always gave good advice but never judged. I know we always pick on you for being so short, but really you were a giant with a puffed up chest. We all love you and miss you.
So doses Tucker!"
"It is has been very hard for me to deal with your loss. I get angry that your gone, and angry at myself for not spending more time with you when you were here. The fact that we were not in the best of relations due to such petty disputes is heat breaking. I really wish things were different for all of us. You have always been supportive of me and my family even though it may not have been ideal to some. I have model my values on how you were with my mom and that you would always stand by her no matter what the situation was. You are irreplaceable. Your entire family grieves dearly for you. I feel like I failed to let you know just how much I loved and respected you, but know this now I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO JUST HUG YOU ONE LAST TIME."
"Michael, I can't stop the tears today, I so wish you were still here with us. I miss you. You are my big brother, damn it , you should be here. I need you to help me understand why your not. Some days it's just so hard knowing your gone, I love you, can you hear me when I talk to you, can you see my tears, can you feel the ache in my heart? Life isn't fair. I never ever thought of losing you from our lives, it still hurts, Yes today I cry for all of us that miss you so much."
"Moms coming back to, Washington ... Soon! It's going to be week after Memorial Day.. Wish you were coming with..Sorry I have avoided this sight for a while.. Just don't want to, get upset that your gone. But I feel your presence, looking over us.. And I think about you dad, everyday. EVERYDAY...AND STILL I CRY FOR YOU..I MISS YOU...YOUR SON, GARY.."
"Hey brother, so we celebrated Easter a few weeks back and Cassandra and I shared a good memory of you. It was the Easter at mom's house in Federal Way when I put on the basket hunt for everyone, I wish I would have had a video camera on you that day, it was so funny watching you hunt all over the yard looking for your basket, everyone had found theirs but you, and you were getting frustrated like you could, cussing, giving me that look, you sat down and it took a few minutes, then those Brown eyes lit up with a big smile and you flipped me off. Yep there it was hanging from a hook right there outside the sliding door, Everyone laughed so hard, I got cha that day. I held an egg/basket hunt for my kids and grandkids again this year and I laughed because I still got it, they search and search and then when they find it their eyes light up just the way yours did that Easter. Cassandra remembers that day as well, not just because Joanie whacked her on her butt ! Because of you is why she remembered, and that my brother is a memory I will always treasure. I love you Michael and I miss you so much. . You were taken away from us way to soon, my heart still and always will ache. Love your dooderbug"
"Mike I feel sorry for people who are so rude on your site. Uncalled for. If people want to post something PLEASE do so with respect for Mike & his grieving family. We miss you so very much & really wish that you were still here. Joanie is sounding good & I am okay with her trying to move on after all I feel that's what you'd want her to do. Mike you were a one of a kind brother.. the best..."
"I think I got all my to do list done for going back to Washington. I went through all of our old emails from the time we sold our house in granite to buying the Arizona house I just deleted all it was too much to keep. And I don't see a point of keeping it. I also deleted all the emails from all your work buddies I haven't heard from them since the celebration of your life. Now I can't go back and relive our life, i'm hoping this makes me move forward. I'm really not looking forward to going back to Washington it's always so hard to be there. Yes I know I have to do it. Tucker and I are leaving 28 May keep an eye out for us I probably will be speeding. Thinking about you and missing you.
"I'm starting to get ready to go back up to Washington. My time down here in Arizona sure went by fast. It's starting to get a little easier here for me without you. But that doesn't say I don't miss you!. I still have that empty feeling with you gone. But I've managed to pull up my big girl panties and do it alone. I thank you for taking care of me all those years and making sure that I will be taking care of until my end of my. It's going to be nice to see family and friends when I get up to here to Washington but I hope the weather stays nice. I'm beginning to really hate cold weather and rain. Today they say it's supposed to get up to 90 but we do have a wind coming from the north so it's cool. Well I was thinking about you so I figured I'd come on this site and give you my two cents, but like always I give you more than you bargained for. I miss you!!"
"Well you missed my birthday, I got a birthday gift anyway I put solar panels on the roof so we could used the pool longer. Randy back down here getting his house together today he's getting his first set of visitors. It's 90° out so am using the pool tucker he runs and hides in the bedroom, he's hiding from me, he doesn't want to go for a swim I'm going to put him in the pool. I should throw him in the pool! Tiffany and the kids came down we had a fun visit. Dylan drove down he love Arizona, he wants to become a desert rat. Well I miss you and I got your patch done for the donation and I'll send it on its way."
"It's March 30th randy's leaving tomorrow head back down here so he can deal with his new house. Tiffany and the kids have been having a good time here, they love the pool. Dylan and I went for a hike in Grapevine Valley seen all the Indian hieroglyphics. I think Dylan is loving Arizona he hasn't been out of Granite Falls he's been surprised that there's smaller towns than granite. Tiffany been doing a lot of talking about you she sure misses you think she misses you as bad as I do. Well me and Dylan are going to go to the Grand Canyon Wednesday. I think I'm going to get him a flight over the Grand Canyon well it's late and I miss you and I will talk to you later"
"Hey Mike, I've been thinking of you lots & still miss you so very much. I've been doing lots of cleaning lately & have been finding more pictures of you when you were a kid & younger pictures of you with Joanie & the boys. You don't even have a beard in a few pics. Do you remember you used to call me "DON" & thought it was funny because it was a boy's name. Watch over all of us. Debbie, Trudy & I went to see Uncle Wayne about a week ago & he's doing good. He is 83 yrs old now. He & Sharla were in town helping one of Sharla's grandkids. Aunt Mary is doing good too. You still have a place in my heart & will forever."
"Today is March 16 2014 got a report from Dan all the golf carts tuned up and ready to go and your's is getting old. Got my taxes done and Randy look at my VIP he's going to change that for me so I can make more money. Still trying to figure out what I'm a do with my life without you. Gary stop drinking and he is seen a counselor about it so hopefully he can get that taken care of, he's also having a problem with high blood pressure which is not good. I'm writing Kyle I told him exactly what I felt about him his life, and what he put his mother through. And a little bit about the conversation you had with Debbie today you die. All your sisters are doing well and they still think about you a lot and miss you like I do. All the grandkids are growing up and doing good and so are the great-grandchildren can't believe Taylor's baby starting to crawl around. Looking forward to meeting her.
"Randy Johnson came down to visit he loves our house he said we did a good job and he loves the area in which we live. So much he's looking at a house to buy and I think he's going to buy now the one next to John and Fay. He told me all he was bringing down was shorts and tank top and if it rains or if it's cold he was going to kill me butt he love the weather he's has been sitting outside in the sun he loves it."
"It's been a year and four months now. I think about you all the time and would love to talk to you, just to explain how I'm feeling. Just the mention of your name or people asking me about you The grief is still so fresh. Troy and Taylor and Tiana are starting to have a relationship together not quite like it was but it's getting there. I wrote Kyle and I told him about your last day on earth. About your phone call with Dbbie and me having to call her about your death3 hour later. I truly believe he needed to know. Now for the Funny side I'm not sure if I get to claim you this year for taxes, I should I have been carrying you around for the last year and 4 mos. I hope you are missing us too.
"Hello brother, you sure are missed an awful lot. There has been many times that I have picked up the phone to call you or typed in your name to email you and then realize you're not here. Needed some "manly brother" advice or just to talk to you and laugh! We never had any problems making each other laugh. I have so many awesome memories with you, thank you for them! I love you and I miss you so much. Your baby sis"
"It's been a year and four months the longest year and four months in my life every day I wake up I think about you every time I go to bed I think about you it is so hard for me to believe that you are gone but I am trying to MoveOn I hope you don't mind, just a short note I wanted tell you thank you for keeping Taylor safe. She was in a car accident she totaled my car.but . And she is safe that's all that matters. Tiana just turned 16 she's not driving yet she's kind of scared hopefully this summer I'll get to spend some time with her and help her learn how to drive the golf cart all over again. Diane's crap with Bob is all over,finally got the child support and then Custy battle all done and over with,Bob keeps bugging her I wish we would've kicked his ass. Tucker got a thorn in his foot, it took about a month to heal. last week I found the sticker pulled it out and is healing really quite fast he's a happy little boy. We miss you,talk to you later love you. Your wife joanie"

I'm going to Maui with Gary and Liz it won't be the same with you but I need to go. Maui was our last big trip. Miss ya! Go hawks!"
It's been a while, but I think about you often. I still wonder where you are now. The holidays went by and I thought of you because last year was the first Christmas without you. It felt very strange being in your house without you. Adrian is growing up and still talks about you. We talk about Uncle Mike and you playing with him through the cat door. We talk about our house which has many parts of your work. I hope you are with us. I feel your presence."

"Mike: you are so missed. It's been a yr now. Still having trouble still believing that you have left us. You are not forgotten.

I will always love you & miss you :-( they say time heals all but not a broken heart"
"It's been a while since I last posted on this site as it is always hard to see your photos and see how young and happy you were and how much joy you have brought to all our lives.

Mike was a very special part of my life. I will miss him forever. I remember our fights we had as kids, all of the happy moments we all had. I remember you trying to teach me (your older sister by 2 yrs) how to play baseball & you telling me I threw the ball like a girl. You were excited& thought it was a cool thing to become a brother-in-law"
"Rest in Peace, Mike. "Moooooooose", to you! As my brother's best friend, from back in the day.... I loved Mike and have precious memories. I hope that God and your own memories, bring you comfort during this time. Mike's legacy will live in the lifes of his next generations. He was fun as my "other" brother, and I am sure the world is worse off without him.- Warmly, Robin Neumeister"
"Dad I miss you very much.You have made such a huge impact in my life. There are no words to convey my gratefulness to you.You have been a pillar of strength in our family. I have admired so much about your values in life and have tried to reflect them in my own.You provided great stability & meaning to our lives. You will never be gone from me and I will honor your life in my own. Love U."
"Michael,you may be gone but will never be forgotten.Thank you for your friendship,all the wonderful memories,laughs and all your help.We will never understand why you were taken from us so young,but the memories will always live on.We will always be there for your family.We love and miss you Michael D Stevens."

As I said to you at the hospital...thank you for taking care of our family so well. I am so sorry that my son will not get the benefit of knowing his uncle throughout his life. Thank you for being a source of strength, wisdom and calm for all of us."
