Mike,

While we share your pain, we can never understand the level. I pray that you gather some peace knowing the legacy that Garrett left behind is evident in the things that have been created due to his death. His gifts have been many and continue to grow even in the presence of the pain you feel.

We are here for you whenver you are in need.

Mr Berg: I have only now been able to log onto ATM and I saw this post right away. I am so sorry for your pain. Everyone here has said something truly meaningful and I only wish to say that I feel the same as they do. You are an inspiration to all of us as well as Suzette, Shannon, and Garrett. You are in my thoughts almost daily as I am sure Garrett is in your thoughts daily. Be so proud of the fact that he has touched so many lives in this world and he has made such a difference in so many people. I only hope this can help ease some of your pain.

Hello All,
Thanks so much for your kind and caring comments - I truly appreciate them. This past Saturday [6/24/2006] was simply brutal. I like to think that I am usually fairly resilient at this point in my life. You know, the time frame coming up to his birthday makes one focus on what would have been - it is simply hard to deal with. I did not mean to cause any alarm to anyone - writing is apparently a method for me to vent and deal with the reality.

It is such an awesome thing to see the positive impact that Garrett left on this world in 17 short years. I remain very humbled by it all - I really do, but as his dad, I suspect the pain will always remain. Thank you all for caring and simply being there for my family.

Just imagine what kind of world it would be if ALL CHILDREN outlived there parents!

Just imagine for one minute, what kind of world it would be if all children were like Garrett & Shannon! It would certainly be a different world.


The pain doesn't subside we know that now but you the parents have to be proud for the impact your children have left and are leaving on this world. In 17 years Garrett left a legacy on us that most people who live long full lives will never even come close to.

I know it doesn't help the pain Mike & Suzette but I,ll say it again,
Imagine what the world would be like if all children were like Garrett & Shannon?

What a great letter. Im going to make it a point to hug and kiss my kids and tell them I love them every night before going to bed. Sometimes we get trapped in the grind of day to day life and we lose sight of whats really important. Thank you for opening my eyes.

Unhappy Re: Today Garrett would have been 21.....

Mike,
I'm sorry I am late to reply to this touching letter to Garrett. I cannot begin to put myself in your place or begin to feel the severe pain you and Suzette must bear daily. I look to you as a role model and hug John and Elizabeth every chance I get now. Thanks for being here to guide us and for just being Mike that we love and care for.

Respectfully,
W.H. Barnard, Jr., Q.E.
