Until We Meet Again, Mitch
Until We Meet Again, Mitch
There are moments in life when it feels like the ground has been swept out from beneath your feet, the wind taken out of your sail, and you’ve been gut punched... all at once.
Getting a phone call, Friday morning, from the wife of my husband Tyler’s lifelong best friend, Mitch Meyers, saying he had passed away in the late hours of the night, changed everything. June 11, 2020 Mitch met his Maker and left behind a beautiful, strong wife, two handsome teenage sons and a sweet six year old daughter, as well as parents, siblings, family and friends, all who loved him dearly.
Mitch was the person you could call anytime of the day; he would drop everything to help you, sit and listen or offer support when you needed it the most. He had the biggest and most compassionate heart, befriended everyone, and his laugh was truly contagious.
He loved fishing and hunting with his best friends and sons. He was often called “Snoozy” because of his innate ability to fall asleep absolutely anywhere at any given time! He lived life to the fullest and had a tendency to push the limit on absolutely everything, consequently breaking bones and having many near-death experiences, chalking up memories that brought many laughs over the years.
In my husband's words, “There’s not a memory I have that is pre-Mitch… he’s been part of my life for as far back as I can remember.” They met at the age of three, went through everything together. Mitch was the brother Tyler never had. Mitch was also like a brother to me and quite frankly, was more of a brother to me for the past twelve years than my own brothers have been my entire life. Mitch will be missed greatly, and we look forward to seeing him again in heaven.
In an effort to help spread the word, I’m dedicating this post to Mitch and his family. There’s been a Go Fund Me account set up to help Suzin pay for the funeral expenses and to get on her feet now as a single mom. If the Holy Spirit prompts you to do so, you may contribute any amount to the fund and know that it will serve as a tremendous blessing and burden-lifter for Suzin and her family. If you’re interested, just click here. Regardless of whether you give monetarily or not, prayers alone are a gift and absolutely crucial, so please cover the Meyers family with your prayers.
Thank you in advance for the loving support and prayers of this beautiful, devastated family as they heal through this season of grief.

It was a very little thing, yet it’s something that made a big difference in my life. At some point in elementary school, I took on painting ceramics. I remember one specific piece that my dad & I made together, for my mom. It was a box with a lid, shaped like a wooden log,…
I really needed to hear these priceless words from my friend Holley, as I read today’s post, “When You Mess Up“. You see, after getting a speeding ticket & being required to go to 16 hours of traffic school this weekend I’ve been frustrated & angry with myself. I kept saying, “what a waste of…
I can completely relate to the Centurion man who went to Jesus asking Him to heal his servant who was at home, paralyzed & “dreadfully tormented”. When Jesus responded with, “I will come and heal him.”, the Centurion quickly responded saying, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only…
