We are here today to celebrate the life of Mike Morey, who left this life too soon.
He was a wonderful father, grandfather, friend. He loved his family, friends, his Harley, his dogs, music and books. Honest as the day is long, and wasn't afraid to speak his mind.
He proudly served his country in Vietnam. He was a true "patriot" and "proud American".
He touched so many lives, in so many ways. Remember the goods times, the fun times, and your special times with this great man. He will be with us always, in our hearts.
Mike would feel the following poem would tell you how to carry on without him:
I Live On
Author: Nicole Jamieson
You may not be able to see me,
Though you think that I am gone.
Inside your heart you carry me,
So I live on, I live on.
I know you feel an emptiness,
Of words we left unsaid.
Release your pain, forgive yourself,
For I already did.
The love you gave, I took with me,
And left my love for you.
So now I know some time has passed,
Here is what I ask of you.
Share my life and remember me,
To those you love – out loud.
And I will become part of them,
For that would make me proud.
Those little quirks, the quips I said,
Please share those memories.
For there is no plaque or stone,
That would better honor me.
I loved you then, and love you still,
And will forevermore.
So take my love and pass it down,
That’s what my legacy is for.
Give my memories, my love as gifts,
And do not mourn that I have gone.
Just place my love in your children’s hearts,
And you will know that I live on.
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
