  9. Darling Lisa. Oh my heart is torn in two for you with the loss of Michael. I had not expected this, it is an awful shock for you and all of your friends. How are you and the boys getting on? This is huge and will take all your faith to cope with. What a beautiful man Michael was. A man of depth and interest, understanding and empathy. He made eye to eye contact and listened and responded in a conversation. I love that about him. He cared! You knew you were valued. I think in any time of trouble, he would be a great ally. And his smile, so broad and warm! My heart goes out to you beautiful lady. I will talk to you soon. All my love, Denise and Rodney xxxx

  16. As the partner of Michael’s son Thomas, the little time I had with Michael left me with the impression of a man who is both so kind and so welcoming. He never faultered in opening his doors to me and was always up for a laugh.

    It is always sad to see such a good person being taken away. But we are all here for a reason and it is all beyond our understanding.

    May he watch on in peace, laugh and treasure all the past and future moments of his family and friends.

    My heart is breaking for your family, and also for our sadness.
    We were blessed incredibly to have known Michael.

    We would love to attend the funeral, and in particular Dan wants to be there to support his best mate.

    Are we actually allowed to physically attend or is it via live stream only?

    Please please call out for anything. I would be blessed and honoured to help in any way.

    Love and prayers to you and the boys.

  26. Dear Joey and Family,

    just a little note to express my sincere condolences for the recent passing of your beloved father. Please accept my heartfelt sadness for you at this time of such difficulty. I know you will seek comfort from those around you; your loving mother and brothers and your extended family. Though, the absolute comfort comes from the peace knowing that your dear father rests now in peace and is seated at the right hand side of our Father in heaven.

    Joey, as hard as it will be to honour your dad on 30th, know that when is with you and will be proud of his son as you honour his name as your dear and loved father.

    I shall be thinking and praying for you all on the 30th.

    May the love of our Father be with you all during this time. I pray for peace and abundant love for you all.

    Always here should you ever need to have a chat.

  31. Beloved Lisa and Children

    I am deeply saddened to hear of Michael’s death. He was a wonderful man and leaves a beautiful legacy …  and you will all miss him for the rest of your life. His sojourn in life however ended with a beautiful salvation.  The only reason that he won’t come back to visit you is because your are already with him in HIS … spiritual … future. 

    Such is the nature of the spiritual life which has accompanied every human being since the advent of the first human being on the planet. But this realization won’t stop you missing him dreadfully.

    In January … after the extremely hurting time of the funeral … I shall contact you and we shall meet … and Our Beloved Majesty will impart a special sense of personal comfort to you.

    Love to you all


    Lisa Stain for Chris
  32. My beautiful & oldest friend in the world. Mum & I watched over you today. Many a tear was shed remembering the love Michael & you shared, his cheeky smile & that beautiful mop of hair all three of your beautiful boys inherited. We were both so proud of you & your three beautiful boys!! Both mum & I were with you in spirit as I’m sure dad was, giving you strength & faith in your journey. In my heart I know Michael is now with dad in heaven, most likely talking about power tools!! Mum & I will give you a call in the coming days. We are always here for you xoxo

  33. Dear Lisa this is so amazing. The one true love is the most beautiful we can ever have and yours is one that is blessed upon you by our beloved Saviour.

  34. The colour of arch angel Michael! How fitting is that.
    Sending huge hugs dear lady.
    I can’t believe how much your boys have grown & changed! I hardly recognised Thomas! Congratulate him on a lovely speech.
    You were so calm & seemingly at peace.

  38. Dear Lisa, Thomas, Ammon and Joseph
    I am thinking of all of you after that big day yesterday. Thank you for inviting me to be there by video. It was a privilege to join with you.
    My sympathy, condoleces and prayers are with you. Michael was a great man.
    Love From

  39. Dear Lisa, Thomas, Ammon and Joey,
    Yesterday was a very sad day, but a beautiful celebration of Michael’s life. You dear Lisa, Thomas, Cherie and Stephanie all gave such heartfelt tributes. It was so touching to listen to your loving memories of life with Michael. He really touched everyone’s lives with his bigger than life smile and sense of humour. It was a privilege to have been his cousin and will miss him dearly. I remember his great workmanship and still have some of Michael’s furniture that he made for us. Even our kitchen was made by Michael. My Mum and Dad’s built in lounge room furniture was Michael’s handy work as well. So Michael may have physically left us but his many beautiful memories will always live on. I’m only sorry I ran out of time to give a tribute. So I’m giving my tribute to you and the family in a letter. There are many family members in Germany who I’m sure would have come to join us yesterday, but will have listen to the beautiful service via live-streaming. Armin, Gabi and David Kuchler, Ewald, Hedi, Ewald junior, Alex and Gunter Kuchler and Angelika Plaicher all send their deepest sympathies and condolences to you at this sad time.
    I think you can be very proud of your boys. They are fine young men who will keep Michael’s memories alive in so many ways. It might be in their likes and dislikes, mannerisms, looks…Ammon is certainly a chip of the old block, a real gentle giant and budding guitar player, Thomas has those big Michael eyes and Joey is a red haired version of Michael. But that’s only half of Michael in each of the boys, because I see half of you in each of the boys as well. The boys are lucky to have you as their Mum. I can see you are the rock of the family and the guiding light.
    I’m sorry we didn’t spend more time each year together as an extended family celebrating different milestones. We started a couple of years back, but would have been better earlier. I guess that’s something we can work on in future. To me family is everything and I love nothing more than keeping family together. Please don’t be a stranger, feel free to pop in any time you feel like a chat. Our door is always open to you and the boys. Now that Matt and Anita have left home, we have plenty of spare rooms if you and boys want to stay over.
    Michael was a good man and will be watching from above with great pride over you, the boys and the rest of the extended family. Now he can join his Mum and Dad over a Kaffee und Kuchen each day, watching you and the boys go about your life.
    Thank you for including us in the celebration of Michael’s life yesterday and the wonderful hospitality at your house afterwards.
    My brother Peter sends his apologies for not coming to the funeral, since he had booked a trip away earlier.
    Lots of love ❤️ hugs and kisses Ed and Gaby

    Lisa Staub for Cousin Gaby
