"When we were growing up as children in Dawson Creek, the only radio station that was broadcasting in this area was CJDC. As we listened to the 'top hits' it always made us so proud when that big voice would come over the air stating "You're Listening To The Big One", and we could proudly say, "That's Our Dad". No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. We take comfort in knowing that you are free from pain and your beautiful spirit is now at peace. Take care Dad; you are forever in our hearts. Love your children, Janet and Richard, Janet (Hans) Timonen of Kelowna, BC, Richard (Diane) Michaud of Dawson Creek, BC Mark Michaud (deceased), And grandchildren, Tina (Mark) urban of Calgary Alta, Denny Timonen of Burnaby, B.C., Jessica, Courtney, Brandon Michaud of Dawson Creek, BC , and three great-grandchildren Ryan Urban of Calgary, Alta , Maliah and J'Zee of Dawson Creek, BC "Words are inadequate to explain how I feel .. how much I miss Mike. I have a broken heart and an emptiness that is numbing. Mike was a wonderful human being. He was an exceptional husband, my soul-mate, my best friend. I am blessed to have shared so much of my life with a man of such high caliber and strong conviction. He was my mentor... My encouragement... My life and I will always be grateful that he loved me. I am not worthy of such a man, but he asked me to be strong.. That I'd be OK. His unshakeable belief in God and his magnificent soul give me strength. . His beautiful spirit surrounds and comforts me. He will always be my hero. I will see him again. Till then.. Take care now."
