Default Garrett M. Berg "Motoman393" - Portrait

Hello ATM,

I have been asked before for a picture of Garrett and I recently learned how to "add pictures" - so here is a picture of my son, Garrett M. Berg. This picture was taken "accidently" as his High School Senior picture. He showed up on the wrong day to get his picture taken. Thankfully, for our family we have this picture. It was taken a week or so before his death.

You know him as "Motoman393" I know him as my son, the "little man" as I often called him. I miss him beyond description; however, I remain deeply humbled by and proud of the legacy he left behind. It has been 258 weeks and 5 days since he died.



Garrett Michael Berg
Born: June 24, 1985
Died: September 22, 2002

"May he rest in eternal peace - My son will live forever in my heart!"

Mr. Berg,
You have had my deepest respect since the moment I read that letter you wrote to Garrett. I've told you before that I don't know how you get through the GMB weekend. I think I shed more tears than you do. You're a strong man and you have every right to be extremely proud of Garrett and the mark he has left on this world.

Mr. Berg,

A child is a direct reflection of their parents. The things they are willing to accomplish in life is based on what inner strength they possess. That very inner strength is a learned trait from their parents. Although I'm sure posting Garrett's picture is an emotional roller coaster for you and certainly bittersweet, we - the membership here at , appreciate you opening your heart to us. You and the Mrs. raised a fine young man and this site is a testimonial to your accomplishment.
