Vanderhoef, Michael James
10 January 1977 - 31 May 2023
Mike, we miss you so much. Our hearts are completely broken without you here. You were always the one to brighten up the room with your beautiful smile and contagious laughter. You always had the best stories to tell and you could convince anyone of anything you were telling them. There will forever be a void in our lives without you. I hope you knew how much we loved you and how proud we were of you. I only wish that you could have come to us. It hurts so bad to think that you felt like you had no other option. And it haunts me to think how all alone you must have felt at the end. I hope that your final thoughts were somewhat peaceful and I hope that God was waiting to take you in his arms and assure you that there would be no more pain or hurt for you. I pray that at long last, you're at peace darlin. We all love you and miss you and we'll carry you near and dear to our hearts forever. Until we see each other again, please be our guardian angel and watch over us all and guide us safely in our daily lives, and keep watch for us at Heaven's gate.
