To My Loving Son and My Best Friend / Mom Dec. 30th, 1980 The happiest day of my life. My little angel Michael James was born. The second I held you I knew we had a very special bond that nothing and no one could come between. We were a team. As you grew older not only were you my one and only son but you became my friend. We took care of each other. We were always there for each other. I was very lucky to have a son like you. You always made people proud. You were always respectful, so giving and put other peoples feelings first. You had a big heart. You were always happy and like to make others feel the same. You were fun to be with. You never asked for much and if you wanted something you worked hard for it. Sometimes you worked to hard. I would have to remind you to take it easy and enjoy. At 24 yrs old you bought a house. You were so proud. I was prouder. You let me be a part of that special day of signing papers. You let me help decorate and gave me my own key. That meant so much to me. You were no longer my little boy. You were my little man. You were becoming such a responsible adult it made me even prouder. When your grandmother, my mother and best friend passed away you became my best friend. You told me you would always take care of me and you would always be there for me. We had that special bond.
April 29th, 2006 My life ended. My little man, my only son and best friend became an angel that early morning.
I know in my heart you're still watching over me because we have a very special bond. Forever in my heart Love and miss you MOM
God Bless Micheal & his family / Charlene Paradise (friendy to Lindsey )
May happy memories help heal the hurt. It's never easy but somehow we do get stronger..... today is 2yrs 11months since I've hugged my son. In his memory I had his newborn footprints tattooed over my heart. I will never stop looking for ways to keep his memory alive; it's what keeps me going....
I pray that with the support of family, friends & community you will find a way to reinvent yourself.... keeping Michael with you always... Peace & Love, Charlene
THE HOLIDAYS ARE HARD FOR ME SO I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE HARD FOR YOU TOO / Patricia Cupstid (GRIEVEING MOM OF JEREMY )
FOR OUR HEAVENLY ANGELS
OUR PRESCIOUS BOYS
A Sure Hope / DI Gordon I'm so sorry for your loss. I see you have many beautiful memories of Michael. Hold them dear to your heart. Being acquainted with such a loss my heart goes out to you. I feel impelled to share with you encouraging and comforting words that were shared with me at my loss. At your leisure read John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3-5. Also Psalm 37:11. These verses gives one the assured hope that we will be with our loved ones on a a peaceful, paradised earth forever, never dying suffering nor growning old. Our Almighty God Jehovah has promised. Verse 5 of Revelation (above) reads "these words are faithful and true." May he give you and yours peace with his words of comfort, loving kindness with a sure hope. A visiting Jehovah's Witness will be happy to share any additional Biblical support for you if you wish.

How do you deal with a loss? I'll tell you how I keep Mikey with me everyday. The inside of my wallet does not hold a picture of my girlfriend or an article of identification, instead when I open my wallet I look a man in the eyes. This man was not only a cousin but he was also a role model, this man is Mike. I just recently found Mikey's myspace.com webpage. I write him an email every once in a while to let him know how the family is doing, i ask him for advice and i tell him how much i love and miss him. Although those emails are never read and II will never recieve an email back I always get a spiritual response. Mikey lives within everyone of us who loved him, and that love is what keeps Mikey alive in our memories and prayers. I love you Mikey.
Mikey was one of my very speacail cousins.I remember, every time he came over he would put me on his shoulders and give me a speacail upsidedown swirly.He was probly very speacail to many peaple, and is still in everyones hearts and will always be in our hearts forever and for always.
To my grandson / Andrew Martino (grampy)
Mike, I held you in my arms the day you were born. I sat through your imaginary hockey games in the kitchen when you were small, I talked to the imaginary spectators in the stands, saying " Thats my grandson he is a super star." I watched you fish in the pond in back of the hospital. I remember your first big bass you were calling grampy look what I caught. I remember you first job as a bagger at Sudbury Farms, and driving you to work everyday. You had a great work ethic and motiveation. I remember the day you left for boot camp how I knew I was seeing the little boy I brought up was going to come back a man, and the little boy was gone. Mike you accomplished more than you will ever know for your age. I know the lord has a reward for you. For the joy you gave this family, and myself in the short time you were with us. I gave you your last blessing at the hospital, and will some day join you and your grandmother. God bless you. Love, Grampy Close
