Well I’m just sitting here thinking of all my family & loved ones that are up in heaven & being missed daily. It’s been awhile since I’ve left a message to you cuz it’s hard for me cuz I always cry and I have a problem seeing what I’m texting. Lol Well Babe, the girls are doing good & grandkids are doing well & growing to fast. Just keep watching over all of us down here in this crazy world. I love & miss you terribly.

Every year, a reminder pops up in my email, and this year was no exception. I leave this message to you because i miss our correspondence in classmates over the years. Even though I hadn't seen you since high school, I still consider you a friend, and when I remember those days, I always smile when i think of all the great laughs we had. Your stories of Ringo, and our reciting of Bill Cosby albums in class were always fun. A nicer, more fun guy I can't say I've ever known. I know you are well and happy...so I send prayers for peace to your family who miss you terribly as I can see by their messages to you. So long for now old friend. Will see you "on down the trail"!

As everyone says, here we are again, missing you. I looked at all the photos again. So much has happened since you flew away. I am sure you were so happy to see Dad, he spoke of seeing you again since 2015. He was quite the trooper, strong and setting everything in place prior to his departure. He was ready and made it quick, as I am sure he has told you. Both of you are healed and enjoying each other to the max. All of our family there enjoying each other. Happy Heavenly birthday to you, miss you, love you. Keep them laughing in heaven, as i know you will. FYI, Connie has Sonny, your happy horse. She is a love. <3 miss you.

Happy Happy heavenly Birthday Dad! I cant say anything I haven't said before... still 1 of the HARDEST day for all of us but we know you are watching & guiding us from above(like you have here on earth) it's just NOT the same :(
I LOVE & MISS you ALWAYS & FOREVER ❤

Well brother, here we are again. Another year, waiting to realize this has all been a bad dream. You are missed, you are loved and your memory is being lived through your kids, grandkids and the great grand. I miss you beyond measure, you are loved. Keep by our side, we love you.

Well, brother, here I am again, missing you. Going through all the pictures and reading all of the comments yesterday on this thing you would have loved, Facebook. I think of how much you would have enjoyed this social media platform. 11 years have passed since you left the building, it's as tough now as 11 years ago. Your girls, grand kids and a new great grand of yours are doing amazing. Parker, a beautiful babe has entered the world. So much life continues to go on, but its not the same without you here. We all keep supporting each other keeping the new generations informed of you. The Hyatt's and Ward's continue to stay in touch. Sonny is still with Connie as you probably know as Connie says she thinks you are around. Art commented yesterday you may be playing tricks with your presence. LOL, love you, miss you and I never take your memory for granted. See you on the flip side. XXOO

Happy Birthday Dear Friend, can't wait to see you again.. miss laughing so hard my smile got stuck.. :)  love you
Posted by Becky Hyatt-Bucalo on March 11, 2018
Another wish for a happy Heavenly birthday dear brother. You know how much you are missed by all that loved you so deeply. The girls and your grand kids are as amazing as ever! Julian and Jaylin growing up so darn fast. I'd love to spend another day with you, big hugs and bigger laughs, your trademark. Sonny is still with Connie, I am forever thankful for that. I always think of how much you would have loved this thing called Facebook. LOL love you brother, yesterday, today and always. Catch you on the flip side. XXOO
Posted by Linda Hyatt on March 11, 2018
Hey Mike another big Birthday is here without you,but everything is going on as usual. Well the girls are doing fine and grandkids are growing like weeds. Julian & Jaylin are tall and thin. Brittaney & Sabrina are doing well and Ben Brit's husband is doing fine too, you would really like him cuz he is such a sweet guy. Well I will close for now and tell you how much I love & miss you.
Posted by Linda Hyatt on December 4, 2017
Hey Mike, I meant Heidi out at the cemetery yesterday and we got you all fixed up for the Holidays, sure wish your head stone was put where is was meant to be, but I know the circumstance behind that issue. John cleaned all the headstones and they are pretty clean where you can actually read the names. Lol The girls are doing fine and all, we are going to have a family photos done this year and I know you will be there with us, first one in a long time. I still miss you deeply and will probably love you for ever. XO till we meet again.
Posted by Barbara Turner on December 3, 2017
I was reminded by an email from this sight that it has been 10 years since you left this world for a much better one. So, I shared a little story from high school days in the "story sharing place" on this sight.

I think of you still when I recall high school days. You were one of my favorite people, and we could always find something to joke and laugh about. I can imagine how much your family misses you. 

So rest high on that mountain for now, and say "hi" to others who have come your way this past year. One of these days we'll all get together and have a trail ride just beyond that rainbow bridge. Save a feisty pony for me, will ya? Never did like a deadhead on the trail. ~~~ Barb

Ten years and still missing you! I will always love and miss you. Life is not the same without you. Time passes but our memories never fade, you brought such love and laughter to all of us. It comforts me to know I will see you again and that you are with the Lord and those who have gone before us. Just wanted to say "I love you, Dolly!"
A decade without the sound of your voice, your hugs and laughter is just too long. I am still proud to be your big sister. Love you, Jackie
Posted by Barbara Turner on March 12, 2017
Well happy birthday a day late Mike! I remembered, because mine is the 8th, and you would tease me about being "older" than you by 3 days! Think of you often ol' friend....every time I see Tom Selleck, as a matter of fact! Well pard, will see you "on down the trail" one of these days. Keep me a place reserved by the campfire until then wouldja?
Posted by Becky Hyatt-Bucalo on March 11, 2017
Well sweet brother, another year without you in it, physically.The girls are well and thriving, grandkids are amazing and know you well. I still keep track of them and their lives as promised to you as you left this earthly place. I also keep watch over the house you loved, in ways only you and I know. LOL Again, a helicopter flew over head this evening while I was gardening. They never fly over here, but of course tonight it did. Blue helicopter just like yours... Imagine that...
Posted by Barbara Turner on December 4, 2016
Howdy Mike! I get notices in my email about significant days for you, and of course, this one came up on the 9th year of your passing. So many miss you. So many have passed since you left all of us behind, too. Lost my mom in September, so it was and is tough. But, life does go on, and we still have the peace of mind that none we have lost are suffering any more, and that we'll see you all on "down the trail". Remembering you and all the laughs we had in high school. Peace and love to your family always....Barb

Today was a hard day as always Dad, no matter how many years go by it NEVER gets easier...I Love & Miss you ALWAYS & FOREVER!!!
Thank you for coming thru today at the reading, and comforting Brittaney to know her Grandpa is always watching over her. Keep on watching over ALL of us Dad and guide us through life the best you can from up there....
LOVE & MISS you XOXO
Posted by Barbara Turner on March 15, 2016
I always remember friends and family who have birthdays close to mine on the 8th of March. So, of course I remembered you and the fun we had in high school! You called me older than you...but I said since it was only for 3 days, it didn't really count! I miss our correspondence (via Classmates.com) after I re-connected with you a year or so before you left this world for a better place. I'll see you again "on down the trail" ol' friend!

Michael,my precious Son.How I miss you as a Always. Mom and I were watching Blue Bloods on Netflicks last night and I said, see that expression on Tom Sellics face? It was like looking at you Mike! This time of year so many things remind me of you. I'm sure. I'm not alone with those feelings.
Posted by Linda Hyatt on March 11, 2016
Well Mike, It's been awhile since you left us, it just isn't the same anymore. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETHEART. I still miss you like crazy along with everyone else that is up there with you, I am sure you know that tho. I can't even leave a message without loosing it, the tears keep falling and I can't stop them, that should tell you I still love you and most likely always will. Well I am sure you are celebrating your special day up there in haven. Till we meet again I love & miss you. Linda

Happy Turkey Day Dad,
I know it's been awhile since I have wrote to you, just been busy and I know you have been with me through every step of the way watching over all of us, and I am so grateful for that. It hasn't been easy and this time is very hard for me :( but I will manage to get through it, cause you taught us to be strong just like you Dad. Your grandbabies are all growing up to fast.... Just want you to keep watching over all of us!! I LOVE & MISS YOU SO MUCH DAD!! (((HUGS)))

Happy Birthday Dad!!!! I know I am a day late...but know I thought about you all day yesterday....as I do everyday..I love and miss you so very much!!! I wish you were here with us... love always and forever your daughter!!!
Posted by Becky Hyatt-Bucalo on March 12, 2015
Well, here we are again, missing you. I want to report, as you know, those girls of yours and those grandkids are as about as devoted as any force you may know. They love you beyond the moon and back. They are diligent and devoted to your memory, more than any I know. You are I am sure, so very proud of them all. I try to keep that promise I made to you, that whisper in your ear that night, the day prior to you "leaving the building." I promised I would always watch over and try to be sure that I would take care of those girls of yours. I hope I have served you well on that promise. I have met new friends that were yours when you were on earth, they respected you and I have become friends with them. Tonight, Johnny and I toasted your birthday at dinner, and Johnny said you watch, tonight there will be helicopters fly over. Sure enough, not one but two. One, on our way home, flying over the 8 freeway, bright lights literally blinking intensely over our car. coincidence, I think not.... Love you Michael, it is empty, where you once lived. Love you big brother...
Posted by Jack Hyatt on March 11, 2015
Mike, Vicki and I were just reminiscing about all the birthday cakes she made for you! LOL It's uncanny how things happened to them. Too many to mention here. They will always bring smiles to our faces.
Was just reading all the tributes to you. What a guy!!!!
We will always love you and never forget all the hilarious times we had together.
See Ya soon down by the river. Keep an eye out, OK?
Forever, Dad and Vicki

Michael,
Here it is, another year missing you. I sit here going over all of the comments, photos and tales of every ones memories of you. You touched so many in such a positive way, it warms my heart. I am reminded once again how much I love you and painfully miss you. I selfishly wish that this end had never been God's plan, knowing of course this was never anyone's course to control. I just had to check in here to feel close to your once upon a time life. Keep sending those copters over, they always, always make me think of you and I pretend for a split second it is you, and who knows, maybe for a "split second," it is. Love you brother.

Thinking of you today Mike. So miss the many wonderful things that were you. Smiled this morning when your handsome, long legged pony walked up to the fence. He, some how, has you all wrapped up in him. Always entertaining me, your Sonny, keeps your memory alive in me daily. Love you always dear friend.

A reminder of Mike's passing popped up from this sight in an email, and I felt compelled to share another story I happened to remember from the "good ol' days".  It goes like this:

One of the things Mike and I shared as friends was a love for all things Bill Cosby.  I believe that between the 2 of us, we had memorized every word on every album that had been recorded by Cosby at that time.  We sure shared a lot of laughs over reciting (ver batim) everything "The Coz" had to say on those albums.  We always had audience participation when we were doing these "recitals" at school, so it was great fun for anyone within earshot!  

One of the funniest quotes was when Coz would say "little tiny hairs growin' all over my face", as Mike apparently had a heavy beard and he almost always had a "shadow" no matter how recently he had shaved.  It was funny stuff back then.  Still is.  I smile every time I think of or hear that phrase.  

You are missed Mikey.  Many cared for you because of the man you were and the smiles you brought.  This year marks 40 years since I lost my first husband, and 10 years since you left this life. Two truly remarkable men gone far too soon. 

Well, others of our class have passed this year, and it's for sure and for certain none of us old farts are getting any younger.  So practice up on your Cosby stuff buddy, 'cause one of these days, we'll get to do it all over again! ~~~ Barb

Mike 'n Ringo

Shared by Barbara Turner on March 23, 2015

I went to high school with Mike.  We were always swapping goofy stories, and this is what he told me one day about the family monkey, Ringo.

"I was doing homework the other night, and Ringo came over and was sitting looking at me kind of wierd.  He'd kind of hold his little hand out toward my face, then pull it back, and look me in the eye like he was curious.  He did this 2 or 3 times.  I couldn't figure out what his deal was.....then, before I knew what hit me, he poked me right in the eye!  Then the little jerk jumped up where I couldn't reach him and he LAUGHED at me....all teeth and grinning and LAUGHING!"  

The way he told the story was classic Mike.  We laughed until we had tears rolling down our faces.

That's how I always remember my buddy Mike.  Smiling and telling stories.  What a great guy!
 

Niece asks Cop,

Shared by Michele Hill on December 4, 2010

I was a second grader at Monte Vista Elementary when I spoke to my first "real life" Police Officer in uniform.

I arrived at school to see a Police motorcycle parked in the breezeway outside my classroom. All the kids were gathered around it, wondering why it was there and of course asked where was the Policeman? I can imagine and sort of remember kids teasing each other with taunts of getting arrested and  
other nonsense.
 
The bell rang and our teacher, Mrs. Clouse opened the classroom door and immediately announced that our class had a special guest on this particular morning. She hollered out for us to quickly take our seats and reminded us to be on our best behavior. 
 
As we all filed in and the room settled, I noticed the Police Officer sitting in a chair at the front of the class. He was in full uniform, helmet under his arm, gloves in his hands, complete with hand cuffs and a gun! I cant imagine the hum in the room as our little brains reeled through thoughts as we inspected him and those off-limits gadgets hanging on his belt. Wondering why was he here? Is someone in trouble? Who's busted now? anyway...
 
The visiting officer was from Phoenix PD, sorta like show and tell I guess? And all of us were dying to ask questions. Each student could ask one question, starting with students in row one. Way over by the window and I was in row four... Needless to say, I thought I would die before it was my turn.
 
I had decided I must have the best question. However each question I fixed on seemed to be asked by someone before it was my turn. Mind you they were silly and totally second grade-ish. i.e. Have you ever arrested anyone? or Have you ever shot your gun? blah, blah, blah. Dumb. I needed something better...and I was scrambling.
 
Finally and suddenly - I was up next and I was at a complete loss. I had nothin. My name is called, all eyes focus on me.  Nervous & desperate ... I ask "Do you know Michael Hyatt?    
 
Immediately my pessimistic mind takes over and I imagine the officers response to my ridiculous question. Of course he doesn't know Michael Hyatt. So quickly I blurt, "He's a Police Officer too"  Trying to validate my question I guess.
 
The visiting officer  repeats my question, "Do I know a police officer named Mike Hyatt?" I nod and he says "Yes,  I know Officer Hyatt,  very well." 
 
At that moment I was complete. This policeman knows him! That was enough for me, I remember thinking my part was over. He answered, and now on tot he next silly question. However little did I know, the policeman will proceed to tell the class how he knows Officer Hyatt. 
 
I vaguely recall the story had to do with a robbery and the officers chase of suspects on foot along a canal. The visiting officer said he was alone in the chase and now much further down the canal and out of eyesight from both street and police vehicle he is difficult to locate by his fellow responding officers. The officer caught up with the suspects, but in an attempt to apprehend the multiple suspects, he was struck over the head, knocked unconscious and had subsequently fallen or was pushed into the canal. 
 
Given his condition, the officer explained how he would have drowned if it had not been for the responding officer who found him, pulled him from the canal and began to administer CPR immediately. 
 
I remember the officer then said something so perfectly poetic like, "to answer your question, yes, I know Officer Mike Hyatt,  he saved my life."  
 
As you can imagine I was beaming and the room was in awe and many gasped in response to the story that had just been told.
 
The visiting officer then asked me, "So how do you know Officer Hyatt?"  
 
I smiled and said, "He's my Uncle Mike."
