The Beers Family
I cannot express how much love I have felt these past couple day at a time where my heart aches so bad. It's a pain that I never knew I was capable of feeling. As Mike knew and my close friends, I am not a very emotional person. It was the joke how he was the emotional one of the family. But it is very clear how much my heart loved and needed him, as I have felt so empty. He was never the typical husband. He continually went above and beyond for us. We often laughed at our gatherings with friends how Mike would rather be the one chatting with the ladies about all things baby instead of watching sports and drinking beer in the other room with the men. At any moment of anytime of the day or night, Mike was there to help in any way he could. And I know that sounds cliché, but it truly was real. He truly wanted to just be amazing and helpful anytime I needed him. Mike constantly got on my case about me wanting to work outside of the home and him wanting me to stay and be home to raise our babies. I worried too much about money and he constantly told me to not worry and it will work out. I cannot even express the amount of love and gratefulness that so many of you have given to me and the kids. I know Mike is extremely thankful for the donations that have come in, knowing that the kids and I can pay the bills for the next couple months until our finances get sorted out. And I so, so wish that I could just take all this money and trade it back for his life. Because there is no amount of money in the world that makes up for having him by my side to parent our children together. But at least he can rest easily knowing that his children will be able to stay warm this winter and continue to live in our house that he worked so hard for us to have. With a heavy heart, I sincerely am so thankful for all everyone has given in a time when money is tight. Every tiny amount helps. It means the world to Mike. And to me and the kids. So THANK YOU!
The funds that have been raised speak volumes to the character of Mike and his family. Although I did not ever personally meet him, I am keeping his family in my prayers. I can not imagine the grief at this time. May God surround you with His comfort and loving arms. Dawn, I am praying for you too. God bless and keep you all.
So sorry . God has you in his arms and holding you all.
Although I've never met you my heart breaks for you and your family. I recently lost my son and no words can take the pain away but the love and support from friends and family help you get through these extremely tough days. We don't know how strong we are until being strong is all we have. Stay strong for those little ones you have.
I heard nothing but good things about Mike. I really looked forward to meeting him and now can't. I'm sorry for your loss.
I met Mike this past summer, great guy, my heart breaks for his beautiful family, it's always so hard to understand why this happens , God be with all if you!
Nicole, I am so sorry for your loss! xox
