Michael Lande Obituary, Death Cause – The emptiness that you leave behind, Michael Lande, is terrible and penetrates my spirit all the way to its center. It is difficult for me to believe that you are no longer here, which makes this the most difficult challenge I have ever had to overcome. You were more than simply a friend; you were my confidante, my rock, and the source of an incomprehensible amount of enjoyment in my life. I will miss you. I can’t stop thinking about the exciting experiences we shared together, from the rush of snowboarding down the slopes you showed me to the carefree laughter we shared over cocktails.
I can’t stop thinking about how much fun we had together. You were not only my drinking and criminal buddy, but you were also my cribbage teacher and my snowboard instructor. You were a varied friend who made life better in many aspects thanks to your presence in my life. Your contagious smile made even the worst days better, and it was a never-ending source of motivation for me. Your unflinching optimism left an indelible mark on everyone who had the good fortune to cross paths with you at some point in their lives. You were a wonderful person in your own right.
Without you, the world takes on a somewhat more gloomy appearance. Every second that goes by after you’ve left hurtfully brings to mind the gaping hole in my life that I’ll never be able to fill. I find comfort in the memories of those one-of-a-kind times that we spent together; the warmth of those times helps to keep your memory alive. The hole that you’ve left in our lives can never be completely filled by the laughter we share together, but life will never be the same without you. I keep your spirit close to me at all times, confident that your love and guidance will help me triumph over the difficulties that are still to come.
My dear brother, I pray that you find peace. I will always cherish the memories, and I will keep my fingers crossed that you have a beer waiting for me on the other side, at least until we meet one other again. The fact that the world will never be the same again as a result of your influence is a testimonial to the wonderful person that you were, despite the fact that the world will never be the same again. I want you to know that I adore you and that I think about you constantly.
