Let the memory of Michael be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Michael Elliott, 46, born on July 14, 1969 and passed away on April 20, 2016. I invite you to share your thoughts, stories and pictures that exemplify who Mike was to you, and the gifts he brought to your life. May we never forget that life is not portrayed by any one single moment, but rather by countless moments of love, happiness, caring and friendship.


They Say There is a Reason

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without.

"Wishing you and your family peace. May you always know what a presence you were in my life. I know you are so proud of your girls. Glad we talked and shared so many memories! I hope your girls know what a great and thoughtful father you were and what they meant to you! My love and condolences are with your family."

"Someone once said "Time is perhaps our most precious commodity, and once it passes, it is lost forever".  While this is true, I do believe that the people like Mike can never be considered as “gone”. They are alive forever due to their profound impact on those left behind.  Although I only met him a few times, it was obvious from the beginning that he was kind, generous, and simply put…real!  It’s often hard for me to connect with people, but that was never the case with Mike. This was the effect he had on people. It was his simplicity and candidness.  He touched so many people too many times by simply being himself.  I loved listening to Mike and Tracy as they shared stories of their childhood memories and even talked about “grown up” dreams.  Their personalities were soo different, yet they shared a special bond that only a brother and sister can understand.  To Sharon, Rachel, Megan, and Tracy, please accept my heartfelt condolences and know my thoughts and prayers are with you always.  The world has lost a generous heart and he will be missed by many.  ~ Beth Dunaway"

Although we didn't see each other recently, I often thought of you. You were one who always was willing to support me, help me and guide me. You were a trustworthy, honest and wonderful person to be around.I am certain that you will realize just how much you were loved by so many! I believe that we will meet again and I am truly looking forward to it.  God Bless you."

"Riding high on the crest of waves, clipping through the uncharted isles, gliding gently through the depths for days where the peaceful currents flow. I hope my thoughts will find you as you cruise some foreign coast.
With heavy hearts we will miss you.
