"Mike, I sure miss you. Hard to believe that it's been 5 years.. I was thinking of you this morning as I was getting prepped for another surgery on my right hand/thumb for trigger thumb. Hoping that you were looking down on me. So far ok. I also visited with Joanie before she left to go back to Arizona with Debbie and Trudy. We had a good visit. My heart breaks when I think of you.

"My heart is still so broken since you've died, it's been five years now. It's so  hard to believe that I have made it this far without you.  We work so hard in our lives, so we could enjoy our retirement.  I didn't plan on  retirement this way at all. When I wake up in the morning I think about you (  where's my coffee )  I miss planning our trips, our new ventures!.  And speaking about adventures do you remember our camping trip from hell. I thought about that today and start laughing it was fun,especially when the Bears came in and decided to try to go through the coolers,you and Randy yelling at each other. (  did you hear that. Hear what. I think it's a bear can you see? Randy's reply no but I can hear it ).  I remember the time renting the cabin in Winthrop and the Bears coming in and me running outside the cabin to watch them and you grab me by the waist and trying to get me in the cabin.u yelling at those cute things will kill. I was so mad at u.  Offhand I can't remember what you sound like your voice.  I miss that.  I do have your voice taped on a couple of films that you made with their squirrel buddy and I a tape of your voice playing with Tucker but listening to it makes me cry so I avoid it.  I miss you always wanting to sit out by the fire and tell me stories and talking about the kids and what our plans are for the future. Five years ago our future stopped seems like it went by fast.  But every day I wake up reliving the day that you left me I know you didn't have a choice but we didn't even have a chance to say goodbye. Now I know why you always made me give you a kiss goodbye and you always give me a kiss hello because you never knew When it will be the last.  I am still waiting for that last kiss I love you and I miss you a bunch

"I decided to come back to Arizona early I'm glad I did. Tucker and I went with Fay and John to lake Powell camping,tent camping of all things. All of us got caught in a funnel cloud downpour so we had to make a trip short. But we had a good time, and the lake was  Beautiful and the water was warm. I think of u a lot when I'm  experiencing new things and I wish you were here experiencing the things with me.  I spent a month babysitting Taylor's children hey so weird babysitting our great grandchildren. Taylor got her self in gaged I can't wait for the wedding. Taylor style she will probably invite me the day of the wedding so either l will be late or miss it.  I had dinner with your sisters before I left Trudy doesn't look too good she's had a lot of health problems. But at least she's quit smoking. Debbie is looking great she got a new hairdo she's lost some weight and she's got a text boyfriend. It's been warm here,and when I do a pool day I think about u and the  kayaks in the pool."

"I signed the Final closing papers of the rental the new owner takes possession of it Monday the Aug 15th. 2017. It is bittersweet to see it go.  I think you would've been very proud of me as far as the price I got for it. Now Uncle Sam will get will get me later.  I am so hoping that Terry can help me out with the taxes and stuff of capital game but I think I'm going to reinvest 40,000 that we put down on the home and buying some land. Just in case I need to build a smaller home.  I have been babysitting Taylor's youngest little girl Mia,  it's been fun she is so cute she reminds me a lot of Taylor. Taylor is going to be in big trouble when these girls turn 18.  I'm going to go back to Arizona sooner this year I've got a trip planned with Fay &John and Lake Powell I was going to stop and see Tiffany. Tim is getting married in New York and Tiffany is also dealing with breast cancer.  But on my way back to Washington next year I am going to spend a lot of time we get me and the kids. I need to let you go there's a diaper that needs to be changed wish you were here we could've been your first diaper of your great granddaughter."

"Happy 61st Birthday"

This tribute was added by Joanie Stevens on 23rd November 2016

"Life is so different now that you are gone your birthday comes but you're not here to eat cake and ice cream.  No calls from family and friends to say happy birthday like another day empty.  You would've been 61 today you would've had at least five years of retirement behind you.  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and you're going to miss that too,  But here's the fact even though you're gone we all miss you and we all think about you and  wonder what it would be like if you were still here. I'm sure, it wouldn't be lonely and you be driving me crazy but crazy is better than lonely.  I miss you and happy birthday and happy Thanksgiving from all of us love you ❤️"

"You've been gone now for four years,seems like yesterday.  I miss my partner in crime.  I also miss the laughing and the picking on each other. I miss you holding me and telling me everything's going to be all right.  I miss watching TV with u our favorite programs and watching the football game and  teasing you about your Seahawks by the way I hope they win today they are playing Arizona Cardinals.  And I hope you're sitting on the 50 yard line. Taylor told me yesterday that she dreamed about you,I told her that spirits come to you in dreams and you're probably check in on her because she's getting ready for the baby.  And Gary text me last night telling me that he missed you and thanking me for a little bit of ashes he got for his necklace he wears 24 seven.  This is a very sad anniversary we all miss you and we wish you were here there is such a big hole in everybody's life love you❤️"

"Troy got his transplant,he's got a great kidney working great!. I'm glad you walked alongside in the new surgery. I can't thank you enough for looking after the boys they love you and miss you so much.  I miss you and having you here to lean on in trying times.  And I miss you giving me shit all the time. But Randy is fulling that  void.  I built a gazebo on the lot now we can sit and have a fire no matter what the whether is. I can't wait to get back to Arizona it been a cold summer.  I always have the feeling that you're out hunting or vacation without me.  I never have the feeling of the separation of death I always feel like you're with me no matter what always guiding me through this mess . I miss u and always will love ya!"

"Happy Father's Day Mike
I spent Father's Day with Troy and his family and everything I seen was, what you instilled in both boys. We did a fantastic job with them.  And watching Troy reunite with his girls and his grandbabies is funny and makes me proud and makes me miss you more. There's a song out there called  Piece by Piece  it reminds me of you picking up the pieces of me from my life. Thank u❤️"

"I left Arizona May 18 got to Washington the 20th one amass the lot was in see-through and the trailer.  I swear all it's done is rain here I see why we left and went to Arizona I miss it every day when it's gray rainy and wet and cold.but I came in time to see Mason graduate preschool Saturday I'm going to Tiana's graduation."

This tribute was added by Joanie Stevens on 31st March 2016

"Tiana's coming to Arizona to visit for her spring break I am so looking forward to seeing her.  With me looking forward to seeing her makes me think about you. It's sad me, you would've loved to shown her Arizona and this is one of the things were both going to miss. You here showing Arizona to Tiana.  I miss you every day! I take ever day one step at a time.  Troy's now on the active list for the kidney transplant that means if a kidney comes up three applicants go down and the doctors decide which one is best to receive the kidney I'm hoping Troy's time will be short.  When they do the transplant I will fly back to stay,for three months until he gets the OK that it's doing good we plan on renting a place close to the UW to make it easy for him.  Keep a close eye on Troy and hold his hand through this he's going to need a lot of help and you're just the person to do it .
Love u and miss u lots❤️❤️❤️"

Ron's Morial is this coming Saturday I am not going back I'll spend time with Debbie when I get to Washington this summer.  I just made arrangements for Tiana to come spring break I hope she enjoys herself here I'm just a little worried about her catching the flight by yourself.

"Good morning Mike it's New Year's 2016 I stayed up to watch the fireworks and thought about you and me had a glass of cheer!
Went to Washington for a Christmas watched all the grandkids and the great grandkids open gifts spent a lot of time with Tiana and the girls.  Taylor's turned out to be quite a little mommy and a good mommy at that. It's hard to believe that she's a mommy and Tiana is quite the young lady,  I died Tiana's hair purple just at the ends though and the great grandkids are a trip.  Tucker did excellent on the plane up there and back it was a lot of work for me,  but I was glad I did it.  And I agree with you Arizona's is home now,it's warmer and I love waking up to the sun and I think God before you die you told me that you were glad you made the move to Arizona."

So I decided pack up Tucker go to a hotel so we could have a shower and be warm and get something to eat. It reminded me of the time in Granite Falls when we were out for a week.  I decided to sell a couple more of your things. I haven't  use them at all in three years. 1. is your trailer and boat motor as I'm cleaning up for selling it reminds me of all the good times we had with those things. I miss you think about you often almost every day well actually every day.  I'm going to be getting ready to head back to Arizona certainly get cold here and night specially and I'm losing my tan and I can't wait to see Fay and John and Becky.
