Dear Marcouiller Family;

I am so very sorry for your loss. One can only imagine the sorrow and pain you must be feeling right now. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. But please notice what the Creator of life himself has promised “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26)

Notice what our loving God will do in the near future – “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)

May it bring you comfort to know others care about your suffering and so does our Heavenly Father Jehovah.

S. James

Mike was the nicest guy. I worked with him at MSDF and he always was a great guy and optimistic. It was inspiring and always made going to the site fun.

Bright lights always burn the deepest in our memories.

My prayers are with Gloria and your beautiful family. A life to soon to be taken, God must have needed him more but why does it hurts so much. I enjoyed getting to know Mike more when assisting with his Mom a few years ago. The Menomonee Park was a special place which I loved taking Elsie to as she spoke so often about walking to the park with her sons.

It was great to get to know Mike, to see the unconditional LOVE he has for GLORIA, Michelle, Renee, Shawn, and grandchildren. I can hear his laughter and know there was one fun party in heaven with Aunt Lil, my brother Joe, cousin David, three of a kind there) and playing with our best doggies in Heaven – Bailey and Fred. RIP MIKE!!

Gloria thinking of you sooo much and cant wait to give you a hug. We are so sorry!!! LOVE YOU,
Laura, Donna, Diane and Aunt Marge.

I shall miss our little talks, altho unfortunately they became far too infrequent (my bad).
On a lighter note, Mike & I were infamous for our snoring (pre-CPAP days for us both). When we went hunting w others for a wknd, which Dennis can attest to, it was a race to see who fell asleep 1st. If the other guys did, it usually worked out OK. But if Mike & I did, it was over for the others. 😀
And altho it’s been years, I would have liked to have gone to Leon’s 1 more time w Mike in the dead of winter in shorts, t-shirts & thongs (that’s flip-flops for you youngins). We raised quite a few eyebrows back then.
There are many other stories I could share, including watching Michael build the bowling ball for the ball & chain event at the wedding, not realizing it was for me (I’ve always been one of those clueless guys…). 😀
But more than all that, were the times Mike & I talked about the Lord. He never stopped seeking the truth. The Lord brought Mike thru some things to help him see, know & understand the heart of Jesus more clearly. Some may remember him for his conservative stance on politics, or his knowledge of guns, etc. But I believe in his heart of hearts what he prayed for most was that his children & grandchildren would know the Lord, & that he could love Gloria more each day. I can only say that the last few conversations I had w him over the last few yrs allowed me to see the Lord doing wondrous changes in his heart. Some changes were easy for him once he understood the matter. Others were harder. But the Lord used all those things to draw Michael closer to Him, & in doing so, helped Michael see his prayers answered. I know he loved the Lord, he loved Gloria, & he loved his children & grandchildren.
Michael, I miss you. You were like the older brother I never had. We’ll have to catch some Leon’s on the other side. I will miss your wit, wisdom & your laugh brother. Thank you for the things you taught me, or in some cases, at least tried to teach me.
Gloria, Michelle, Renee, Shawn, I don’t know what to say other than I’m so very sorry for your loss, & sorry I’m unable to be there. It’s easy as believers to say he’s in a better place or all the usual things we on the outside stumble to say while trying not to say the wrong things. But nevertheless, it still hurts, especially when you’ve been w someone so long, & they leave so suddenly. I’m sorry.
God bless you all.
Sincerely, doug
Is 61:3
Isaiah 61:3
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.”
