Dear Mike,

My name is Ernie Morgenegg, I am Carey’s dad and Frank’s father-in-law. I have known you for quite a few years and I have been with you quite a few times when I have visited Carey, Frank and the girls, Kristina and Rachael.

The purpose of families is for family members to grow stronger and become better, together. I have watched you and your family grow together. Growth is brought about by families serving one another. You are a member of the family and you did your part. Our lives on earth aren’t always easy but by being part of a family you can make it and you did your part. The success of the family is worth the effort.

There is a song that I like, the words go like this: “Families can be together forever through Heavenly Father’s plan. I always want to be, with my own family and the Lord has shown me how I can.” You are now in the process of learning how that can be.

I am looking forward to seeing you again.

With love,

Carey, Frank, Kristina, Rachael and Ernie

Mike was such a kind and gentle soul. He was truly a member of the Wassenburg gang. We always marveled at the love and care he received in their home. Now he is resting in God’s loving arms...

Mike never missed an opportunity to show off his latest and greatest gadget. He was passionate about all of his things no matter how small and loved to share his toys with my son. They played so well together; Mike was always so patient and attentive to my son and welcomed him to his space and stuff, always smiling.

I remember giving Mike a little angel pin that I made.
He was so happy and put one of his biggest smiles on his face to let me know!
The next time I saw him and many times after he would smile real big and point to his shirt to show me he still wore this pin with pride.
Mike was a truly thankful person and always ready to show his gratitude.
He brightened each day .
He will be missed by his Wassenberg Family and all those who had a chance to meet this fine man. People like Mike are rare and precious. I will forever be grateful to have known him.
