This has to be the hardest post I have had to do. Michael passed into the arms of Jesus and his daddy, mimi and papa on Saturday evening, January 29, 2011. He was surrounded by a host of friends and family. Funeral services were held on Saturday, February 5, 2011 at the First Baptist Church in Olney.

Michael now knows all his relatives who were gone when he was born. What a glorious time he has had telling them all about himself and his battle with Ewings Sarcoma. He has told his daddy about his battle since he passed away in 2006 and his Mimi in 2009.

I thank God everyday for allowing Michael to come into mine and Marc's life in May 1986 and being the child that God planned for us even before we knew him. He was such a joy and blessing to our family and I know I will see him again some day. Thank you Jesus for your love and gift of Michael.


  1. Thank you again for sharing the journey you and your son have taken with friends, family and friendly strangers such as I through this blog.

    As a mom, my heart goes out to you.

    May God's love enfold you at this difficult time.

  2. Missing Michael and his big bear hugs and his amazing spirit I just loved my lil bro he was one amazing guy  loving his strength and the strength of his amazing mom  kid sis Heather Napoleon

  3. while it is sad he has passed, I am thankful he is at peace after all the pain. Me and Michael were very close friends online, and during the month of January towards the end realized why he was not online. Good luck to you all, I know he was a great guy, and now he is finally at peace with his father again.

  4. We met you ar MDA on our first visit to Dr. Ravi in October. I have been following Michaels story since then. Thanks for sharing your journey and sharing your faith through this hard battle.
