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.

As you know, this has been a very difficult year for me as I journey through the loss of my truth teller, business advisor, and Daddy. I miss him deeply, so although Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays, this year, it’s not quite as merry for me. Then it dawned on me……
It’s funny how we imagine our dreams to look one way, yet they turn out looking totally different, isn’t it? I imagined that working from home would give me a set schedule with set hours. Having a set schedule would enable me to pack my hubby’s lunch, and make his morning coffee, see him off…
I recently read a passage out of Luke Chapter 1 that really jumped out at me: “And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among…
