I'm so sorry Wegener family. I knew Mike from working at NIMC. He always had a smile on his face no matter what. I looked forward to seeing him in the hallways at NIMC, he would have a joke to tell or "just ask how are you today?" Which was nice mot very many people go out of there way to ask that. Even when a parking light in the NIMC parking lot just burst/broke on my car one day, he had to be called outside because naturally that was part of his job. As I was so upset, he said "Valerie it could be worse." I said really how, he said "at least it didn't brake while you were standing under it!" We both broke out in laughter!

I'm so sorry for your loss of Michael. It's always difficult to lose a loved one, but it's especially tragic when they're taken by death so young. My family and I were devastated when we lost my grandmother and some days are harder than others to deal with our loss. However, I've found comfort in God's promises found in the Bible. In the Bible, God gives us the hope of the resurrection through His son, Jesus Christ(John 5:28,29) as well as to do away with all the causes we have for suffering here on Earth (Revelation 21:3-5). Knowing this has brought me much comfort and it's my hope that these thoughts will also comfort your family during this difficult time. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.

I worked with Mike for several years and often golfed with him in the hospital golf league. I always appreciated his friendliness, good cheer, and great smile. My sympathy to his family.

Dear Wegener Family, Please accept our heartfelt condolences as Mike is called home to rest in Paradise. Although my husband and I both worked with Mike at Centegra, I've known him all my life through our family's longstanding mutual friendship. When I, too, was diagnosed with cancer 15 years ago, Mike was very positive and encouraging. He inspired me in so many ways but it was his positive attitude that truly left his imprint on my heart. Paul and I will miss Mike very much. May he soar with the angels now, free of cancer. Rest in paradise, Mikey - you've more than earned your place there.
