Six Years / Papa &. Debbie Cannot believe that six years have passed. You are always on our minds and in our hearts and we are so very thankful for having the time we did have with you...when someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasure. You are our treasure Michael. RIP
6 Years / Mark Schafer (Father) Hey there son. Well it's coming up on your 6 year anniversary and it is still hard to believe that all of this happened. I still feel one day you are going to walk through my front door. I love and miss you son. One day we will meet again. Love always Dad
My Hero / Abby (Cousin) Hey Mike!
It will be 6 years on Monday. 6 years when they took you out of our lives. I along with the whole family will never forgive them for taking you. I know God wanted you up there but we needed you down here. I want to say thank you for watching over me. I know you are always there when I need you. As Aunt Lori had said Tierney's son Michael shares the name of a hero. When I see your baby pictures I see little Michael. I personally believe he was a blessing from you and Grandpa. Tell Grandpa I love him. Thanks for watching over us your cousin Abby
I wanted you to know that Kaleb Michael Davis was born on 23 April 2008. You will never be forgotten Mike.
Remembering You / Papa &. Debbie While it has been 3 years, time does not matter.....you are still loved, you are still missed. We still wait for that door to open and see your smiling face as it barrels through, erupting the silence that we've become accustomed to. Your smile, your outgoing love for life......all the things that made you.....YOU. We miss them everyday, and we miss them even more as the anniversary of your death is upon us. It is unbelievable that so much time has passed since we last saw your smiling face and heard your voice...but, time goes on and we still wait to hear and see you..........knowing that it will only happen when we are finally with you. God bless you Michael wherever you are and give us the strength to go through each day knowing that you are but a quick gesture away and always looking over our shoulder. We love and miss you!
In loving memory of Staff Sergeant Michael W. Schafer Born August 16, 1979- K.I.A. July 25, 2005
Forever in our Hearts
A million times we needed you, a million times we cried, If love alone would have saved you, you would have never died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place, no one can ever fill. A light from our household is gone, a voice from our love is stilled, A place in our vacant homes, which never can be filled. Some may think you are forgotten, though on earth you are no more, But in our memory you are with us, as you always were before. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, A part of us went with you, the day God called you home. Your precious memories are for keepsakes, with which we' ll never part, God has you safely in his keeping, but we have you forever in our hearts.
Loving and missing you always- Papa & Debbie Forbes, Mom, Dad & Tim Barr and Grandma & Grandpa Barr
Bless you my friend / Cindy Andrews (Unmet Friend ) Mike, You and I are friends that never had a chance to meet. Like the saying goes, "stranger's are friends I haven't met yet". Your bravery shows in all you have done and what is left behind. I almost lost my brother during desert storm, and have lost others during active war. I know how it feels to lose a dearly loved person to the hand of another human full of such anger and hatred. Even knowing this, my heart is enlightened because there is a very special place for you and I know you are not alone. Brother's in arms. Bless you sweetie and bless all the loved ones left behind. Say hi to Grandma for me. Cindy
Thinking of you / Bob Nichols Just wanted to express my condolences. I know Mike was a great guy and you will never stop thinking of him. May God be with you. Love, Bob
You are not forgotten / SPC Greg Buck (Brother in Arms ) I am so sorry for your loss. Men like Michael are what keeps us in the fight. God Bless his soul and ease the Schafer family's pain. I know soldiers like Mike watch over us as we carry on his mission. Thank you for being brave and giving the ultimate sacrifice. Love you Bro! See you soon!
Salute to Michael / Eve Browne (military family ) Thank you for serving, Michael, and for giving your life for this country. You will be eternally honored by your family and your fellow Americans.
I owe you ,Mike. / John Fedor (None) Mike, thanks for everything you gave. Without people like you there would not be a great country like the USA. I will always remember what you have done for freedom that we take for granted in this country. Nobody in any Hall of Fame in this country has done what you have done and that is to give it all to a cause or effort you believed in. You are a true hero!! I thank you and your family. We will never forget what you have done. God bless you. The Fedors.
My prayers are with you along with my thanks for the service Michael did for our Country. My brother also was in the 82nd Air Borne stationed in Fort Bragg. He served in Desert Storm. He loved what he did. He came home but later lost his life due to being murdered by his ex wife. May God Bless your family and all of those still serving. Connie Whitmore (Gregg Whitmore's sister)
A true patriot... / Amanda Hayes I may not have known Michael in this life, but I am proud to say that I'm American, just because of guys like him. Michael is a crystal clear model of what Americans should always be. You are blessed to say you knew him. My prayers are with you. Michael is a true American Hero. Thank you, for the sacrifice You have made for this country.
Somewhere in heaven, there's another angel in camo with a red white and blue halo. And he's watching over those he loves.
Keep telling his story. My sincerest condolences, Amanda Hayes Ringgold, Ga
I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU / Stephanie Donchez I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU TO YOUR SON FOR GOING TO WAR FOR THE U.S. AND PROTECTING US. I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS - I AM A DAUGHTER AND SISTER OF TWO VETS.
