I’m am so sorry for your loss. Mike and I became friends and I have enjoyed our visits. He was always so friendly and always had a smile that I will never forget every time I saw him he would open his arms wide open and hug me. I know that Jesus is doing the same for him. I was glad he was back and I always looked forward to seeing him. He was a great friend. He will be missed dearly. My heart goes out to everyone of you in the family and I’m praying for all of you. Love and prayers. Sincere condolences.

I am deeply saddened by Michaels accident and passing. He was a great brother in the faith, and truly loved our Heavenly Father Yahweh. He put his trust and efforts in sharing the good news of our master and savior Yahshua.
We shared many hours of bible study, and conversation seeking the truth and learning about the way we should live our lives. I first met brother Michael in Israel during the feast of tabernacles, and we have shared many hours of thought provoking study. I know he adored his family, and especially his grandchildren. His goal was to bring all to an understanding of the love of Yahshua. I will miss him deeply, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and all his loved ones. Michael and I believe in the hope of Yahshua when he said in John 11:25 that he was the resurrection and the life, and that he who believed in him, though he may die, he shall live, and whoever lives and believes in him shall never die. My hope is that one day I will again meet Michael. May the peace of our savior give us comfort during this difficult time.
Most sincerely, Lorrie (Lydia)

So sorry for everyone in the Dauwalder family. Mike will be missed, he touched many people and was never afraid to let people know about his faith. I close my eyes and see Jesus with his arms open wide welcoming him to his eternal place. My heart hurts, but my spirt soars knowing he is finally home.
