  1. Dear Bill and Susann,

    I just learned today about the death of your son, Micah. I am at a loss for words and can’t imagine how difficult this is for you. Losing someone as special as a child goes beyond comprehension. I pray you will find comfort in your memories and each other. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

    I cannot express how I felt when I heard of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time. Know I’m thinking of you all with warm loving thoughts. Adele

  3. Dear Suzann: Pamela Linden sent us a copy of Micah’s obituary, and we were all saddened to read it. You are fondly remembered here, and our hearts ache for you. We pray that you will find comfort and courage to endure the days, weeks, and months ahead as you grieve for Micah. It’s hard for me to imagine anything more difficult than losing a child. You are in our prayers. Fondly, Jane Sheffer

  4. Suzann and Bill,
    I am so sorry to hear about Micah’s death. The grief, the waves of emptiness and numbness, words can’t grasp what you both must be experiencing…. I pray for peace of some sort to enter you both.

  5. I was on vacation last week, and recently heard of Micah’s death. I have thought about him often, and was hoping he would make it for a transplant. Sometimes I can’t understand how medicine is becoming a money issue, and not just about helping people. It hurt me greatly, as it did many people, to see him slowly getting worse and feeling helpless. Your strength and faith were so powerful. He was a really good kid, and I loved his mellow attitude. God bless you all and my prayers are with your family.

  6. On behalf of all the staff at Comfort Dental South Pueblo, our heart felt condolences go out to the family of our friend Micah Omlid

  10. Dear Bill, Suzann, and Cameron,

    Our hearts are deeply saddened by your loss. We have many warm memories of Micah from the time he and Erica met at McClelland.

    I remember the first time Micah came over to our house to play with Erica. I opened the front door and in beamed “Little Boy Sunshine” clothed with enthusiasm ( without the cape) and ready for action! I think he forgot his empty bug jar. Anyway, within a matter of minutes, he was upstairs, downstairs(sliding on the bannisters) then out the back door. Anything that crawled, slithered,walked on all fours, real or unreal interested him. Well, at the end of this busy day, Micah was still running on full, but was time to bid adieu. Waving good-bye to Micah, Erica asked, ” Mum, can Micah come over again tomorrow?” “Maybe the day after tomorrow.” I replied, thinking one day of rest would be good.

    That was one of many days that Micah and Erica would spend together throughout the years.

    We will remember Micah always, your beloved son and our daughter’s friend.

    Our prayers are with you.
    God bless your family
    With love,

    Pam & Dan Grossman

  11. My prayers are with Mr and Mrs and Cameron. This was heartbreaking news on the lose of Micah. Micah was such a ball of fun and such a kind spirit. He was the first one we, Mikie and Lonnie, met in Kindergarden at McClelland. He came up and told us his name and told my boys “not to cry, as he had been there the year before and “it was alot of fun.” That was the kind, sweet boy that we always knew. Not an unkind bone in his body. (just like his parents) He looooved sweets, candy. He bought most all the sweets we took for the weekly bake sale though out the McClelland years. (We actually took what ever he liked, knowing he’s buy them.) He loved gum and hot balls the best. I remember the great times he had with my boys on the hill next to his house. There were very few homes i trusted my sons to stay over night with and the Omlid’s was one of 3 in elementary school. We, my family and I are very glad God put Micah and his kind spirit in our lives.
    I believe he is in heaven, checking out the place and will be there to greet us, just like he did that first day of kindergarden, all those years ago, to reassure us that “it’s fun here and not to cry.” (I think I was just as ressurred as my twins at the kindness of Micah)
    I cried at your loose today. Your loose is unthinkable. Know that we are with you in spirit as me and my boys are living on the east coast so we cannot be there to share our memories on Friday. Love to each of you. We sure did love “field day” No one can take all those lovely memories we have to share.
    Sincerely,
    Mikie and Lonnie’s Mama

  12. I knew Micah for many years, the first time I met him was on the first day of kindergarten. He was the first person me and my brother met, he was standing at the gate of the play ground waiting to welcome us to school. He knew everything about the school already because he wet to preschool there the year before (his words). Since then we had a lot of memories birthday parties, sleepovers, high school, and finally as two men on a fun filled nights on the town. I along with all of you will never forge the impacted he had on my life. Now he waits to welcome at the pearly gates and I know he’ll have the same look on his as he did that first day of school.

  13. We were so sorry to learn about Micah. We haven’t seen any of you since the McClelland days, but we remember that shock of blond hair and delightful spirit so well. Please know that you are in the hearts and minds of many people at this trying time.

  14. I remember Micah from 5th grade; he was always laughing and joking around. I know that I would remember him even if there were more than nine of us in that class just because he always made everyone smile. My condolances for losing him so young.

  15. Suzann, Bill, and Cam,
    Vicki and I grieve with you at the loss of your son and brother. I will always know Micah through Suzann’s eyes – his artistry, his practicality, his originality, and his adventerous nature. We are so sorry…so very sorry. Please know that we are with you in spirit and on earth at any time and at all times.
    Pamela and Vicki Linden

  16. Dear Family,

    Micah will be truly missed by many of his friends. Micah was one of those people that you knew was a true friend. He always made sure we were all smiling and ok in our lives, before he worried about himself. I will miss him very very much. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Tiffany Davis

  17. Cam, Suzann, and Bill:

    My heart is truly filled with sadness. Micah was a kind spirit who always greeted me with a smile, a hug, and a story of one of his many adventures. He will be missed and remembered. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that you can find joy in all of the beautiful memories of Micah.

    With love,

    Melanie

  18. Bill, Susan & Camaron:

    Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with you.
    May everything lovely you see and hear always remind you of Micah, and remember he will always be with you in your heart.

    God Bless you all throughout these troubled times.

    With love Jennie & Fred

  19. Dear Bill, Suzann and Cameron,

    I was terribly shocked and saddened this morning to read that Micah had passed away.

    As their kindergarten teacher, he and Cameron held a special spot in my heart. I will never forget his blond hair, cherubic face, sense of adventure and enthusiastic nature. He (and Cameron) loved to bring in creatures from the prairie and other fun finds from outdoor explorations to share with the other students. He was so bright and such a joy to have in my class. I will never forget how I couldn’t help but smile when he would rush in the classroom with a glass jar, etc. with a lizard, spider or some other creature. His eyes would dance and he would be bubbling over with enthusiasm to share his find.

    Bill, it was nice to see you from time to time through the years and get updated on the boys. I’ve always enjoyed that.

    My heart goes out to all of you on your terrible loss. Please know you will all be in my prayers.

    God Bless,
    Jan Smith
