Mikey, I didn’t even know there was a guest book until today. I can’t even begin to explain how hard it is here without you. Every hour that passes makes my heart hurt even more because it’s another hour further from the last time i saw you or heard your voice. We received your things that were in storage in Hawaii. Everything in those boxes were so you. I dream about you often. I wish you could see my room and how I have reminders of you everywhere. I made a scrapbook that I think you would be proud of. I have a set of your cammies hanging on the wall above my head. I wear your clothes and listen to the music you stored on your mp3 player and just cry. I never take the locket with your ashes from around my neck. Your spirit is everywhere around us… but for some reason it’s not enough. It isn’t fair that I will never be able to hug you again or party with you or just get advice from you. You were my best friend… my brother… and now my guardian angel. I love you and miss you so much it hurts. Watch over all of us and help us get through this. Your scholarship has been growing amazingly! There are a lot of kids that are going to benefit from it. We are going to Hawaii when your brothers from Iraq come home for a memorial service in honor of the fallen. I can’t wait to meet everyone and hear stories about you. Semper Fi, Mikey… we are all proud of you.
Love always, Your Sister. Shelly Cohen, Jacobus, Pennsylvania

Hey Mikey…what’s up? Well, I recently moved back to Florida and ya’ know what? In the long run, I feel like it’s for good this time. I moved back on Nov. 15th (but I’m sure you know that); and a little while before that I began thinking about “The House”. And no matter how “loud” it got, your humble “quietness” would always even things out. Dad and I recently got our attunements in Reiki; and I know you were there when that was occurring, during the 21 day process after and even now a few times since I’ve come back to Florida. I just wanted to stop in and say hi; and just like “The House” you are welcome here anytime Mikey. Love you, man. Have a positive day. Be Well, Kris
