You're not alone, for I'm still here. I'll go that extra mile. And when your grief is easier, I'll even help you smile.
When you love someone put their name in a circle, instead of a heart. A heart can break but a circle goes on forever.
WHEN YOU FEEL LOST, PAUSE AND LOOK
CLOSELY AROUND YOU.
SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW, AN ANGEL WILL
BE WAITING TO HELP YOU HOME.

Michael's mom, Linda, writes: "JD and Gokey, Michael is our guardian angel now, but you 2 were most certainly without a doubt my 2 earth angels through the worst time in my life. Thanks for being there through that time for me, thanks for your shoulders that caught so many of my tears. You're the best and will forever have a special place in my heart."
Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I ~ and you are you.
What ever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no differences into your tone.
Use no forces air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the
little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever in the house hold as it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
Without the ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
There is absolute unbroken, continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval, somewhere very
near; just around the corner.
All is well.
