Feathers -- flying on the wings of love. Spirit Dancer. I heard your message. Please continue to look out for her and all the others who need your love. Hope you and Terry are celebrating today. He's singing and you're dancing! Happy Birthday!

Hello again, Michael. Your message of love, forgiveness, faith and honesty has stuck me with. It was a true blessing to have learned what those words meant from a man who survived extremely difficult times, to experience extraordinarily beautiful events. You, Mary and Jane spread the message of hope by keeping the faith. You three did your jobs so well that God called you back home. I was fortunate to be a part of your lives. I hope you and Terry are reveling in having a little brotherly alone time. When it comes to siblings, there's no one and nothing that can fill those shoes, is there? Enjoy your time together! Continued blessings from this world into yours, and thanks for watching over your family and friends. You're never too far from our thoughts. Love you!

Good Morning Mike ! I know time is supposed to heal,but no matter how many days pass the void remains ! Our family continues to suffer the pain of not only your loss but now also Terry ! Dad and I both have these constant reminders and the reassurance felt,that all is well with both of you, but the void remains,and not a day goes by that we don`t miss you both so much ! We see the Hawks, the Cardinals, the Butterflies ,all the little signs sent, and know with every breath,we are blessed with special spirits and our own personal guardian angels ! Love and miss you every minute of every day ! PEACE !

It's a beautiful, beautiful day from where you are, isn't Michael? On this 10th anniversary of your journey home, the candle in the center of my table is lit in your memory and in honor of the life your worked so hard to live. Your strength and convictions left an indelible impression on my heart, in my thoughts and in my actions. You made a difference in this world and continue to do so from the next. Keep up the good work! Love and blessings! Paula P.S. I still have the ring you gave me. As soon as I get this weight off, on it goes and there it will stay. ;)

When you die, you will be spoken of as those in the sky, like the stars. - Yurok (or the moon) Thinking of you today and as the hawks flew over I knew you were thinking of me.

Happy Birthday, Mike! I know you're dancing and singing.
Posted by Mary Lou Hunsberger on 15th January 2015
I think of you often Michael. I think of your free spirit, your laugh, and your courage. You showed me so much about how to really live life. I sometimes talk to you and I know you hear me; all the way from Heaven. The world lost an innocent spirit the day you passed.
Posted by Donald Heldenberg on 15th January 2015

Lee continues to comfort and reassure us,but the void remains,and the tears still come.Like so many things, we fail to realize what we have until they are gone,and you were such a gift ! Please continue to stay in touch,in any way possible!

A world renowned Spiritualist told me that a man was riding behind me on the motorcycle, hands covering mine, steering the bike to safety in an unsafe condition. It was you. Thank you! You are God's messenger. Keep working your magic Michael, we need your healing and insights. We love you!

Thinking about you always.
Posted by Paula Andrese on 17th January 2011
Michael, I lit 6 candles Saturday night. All candles burned down evenly, very uncommon. You were there. You're still the best power of example there is. I'd love to say I miss you, but you never really left me. Incidentally, I really dug what you did for me this summer. I knew I wasn't traveling alone! You're doing a great job up there. THANK YOU! xoxoxo
Posted by Marta Heldenberg on 15th January 2011
What can we say, Mike, that has`nt already been said! We were assured time would "heal",but the void remains,and probably always will. Thankyou for watching over us.We feel your presence every moment of every day! Love you forever and ever! Mom and Dad.
Posted by Mary Smith on 15th January 2011
Michael I miss you every day, Five years later and you are still here by our sides and watching over us all. You have given me strength every day. Love ya
