To my Son, Mike.
A loving son like no other. I will never forget all the good times we had when you were little, you were so goofy and so happy with life. When you had your first job at Little Caesars, You were so cute to make me a pizza made with so much Love. When Grandma and Grandpa Garza wanted a pizza, they wanted you to make it because it was out of the kindness of your heart to make one for them and they knew it was made out of Love. They were so proud of you and loved you so much. I miss you so much Mike, im drowning in my own tears, wishing you were here. I never stop thinking about you and I always worried about you. Its the saddest thing to lose your child, what I would do to get you back. I would do anything to get you back, but I cant. Youre in Gods hands now. Someday we will meet up again. You go with Dad, and rest in peace my loving Son, my baby. I love you so much. Youll be missed forever

My dear, sweet friend,
I know you would’ve wanted a party instead of a funeral. I remember talking in the hospital last year, about how afraid you were; how aware and shocked you had felt after one night of fun. Knowing how afraid you were then… helps me feel less selfish for being so sad.
You always knew my heart and I yours. Recalling your adorable face say you’d want Lana blaring at your funeral and moments later discussing your fear regarding your near death experience… It makes me think about what you must have felt moments before.
So I’m mourning you. The way a 23 year old ought not to mourn. Sleeping away the morning, drudging through the day, and grasping for the nightmare to end.
One day I’ll get over this period of greif. I promise once this ends, I’ll live the life you no longer can. I will travel to LA. I’ll see huge cities and bump into some celebrities along the way. I’ll visit puppies at the pet store and love them all. I’ll listen to your favorite artists new releases. I’ll experience all your dreams for you. As you exist is my heart, you’ll be with me through all of these adventures.
I love you and miss you so much, hun.

Michael – It is so hard to believe you are gone, yet I feel comfort in knowing that you are free from pain and fear! You were such a loving Nephew to me, Josh and the whole family. When we needed a good laugh, you provided that. I will so miss you hon. God has gained an angel that He so needed. I will always cherish the wonderful memories we all had together and you will forever be in my heart! I love you Mike – with all my heart. Go now…gain your wings and fly! Love you…Tia Landa.
