Adrien, Although I never had the privilege of meeting your Mike; I feel like, through Facebook, that I grew to know and appreciate what an amazing man, father and husband he was. I am deeply saddened by your tremendous loss. God must have needed another strong Angel and chose Mike. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your beautiful baby girls. May God lay His healing hands upon your broken heart. Love in our KD,
Adrien and family,
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to you and the girls at the loss of loss of husband and father. I was close to Michael as his supervisor in Texas at Angelo State and his colleague here in Omaha where we visited several times a year.
Michael was an outstanding young professional, and I am so proud of the work he did in developing and expanding student services and enrollment for the college of engineering at the University of Nebraska.
As you well know, Mike had great passion for his work, for his church, but especially his family. Also being a father of three daughters, I held a special kinship with him in that regard.
Since I will be out of state on the 20th, I will be unable to participate in the ceremony, but I will call on you later on with a special gift for the girls.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Mike has left a large mark on many lives and his absence is felt keenly by those of us who have known and have loved him. Keep your memories of him close to your heart and he will always be a part of you.
Mike was a wonderful colleague. His positive attitude at work was inspiring. He was a natural leader and will be greatly missed. Prayers and hugs to all of you.
What a beautiful tribute to Mike. I was fortunate to meet him last year and know he was well loved and loved his family very much. Condolences from us all in St. Louis. A donation has been made to Memories for Kids from friends at BJC.
The FCRO Staff and Board Members send their condolences to Adrien, the children, and the family. May the love and care of those near and dear to you all, help you all through this time of sorrow. Our thoughts are with you all.
I am truly sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers
I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of working for Mike at University of Idaho. I remember him as an incredibly kind, caring and positive person. He was a joy to work with. I also remember the way he talked about his family with love. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m sorry for your families loss. Sending lots of hugs and loving thoughts you way.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Loehring family. I fell in love with them when they became my neighbors in San Angelo, Texas. Mike was a very loving husband and father. Until we meet again my friend… Sylvia Holloway.
Thinking of you Adrien, and the girls. I will always remember your fun wedding reception in Moscow when Mike was working in the CNR at UIdaho. I hope the many good memories and experiences you had together will help you get through this tough time.
Dear Adrian and Girls— I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your husband and dad. Carrie and I have shed many a tear. I know you are surrounded by friends and family at this time so that gives us all solice. Please know we all love you! May God bless you and protect you! If Carrie and I can do anything for you please don’t feel reluctant to ask. Again all our love! Bob and Carrie Kelly.
Adrien and family, Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Mike was a great man and I will truly miss him. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
It’s been years since I’ve seen Mike’s smiling face in person but I’ve kept up with him via social media and his Caring Bridge site. Even when we were young naive college kids, Mike was one of the kindest, most caring, and generous people I’d ever met. Reading the notes from his loved ones and friends tells me that he was that to everyone, always. The world lost a truly special soul. Sending his family and loved ones my deepest sympathies.
My heart is broken for you Adrien, your sweet girls & your family! I can’t imagine how painful this is! We love your entire family & will be here for you always! Love & hugs friends!! ❤️🤗🙏🏻
Wishing you and your family healing thoughts and prayers. Mike was such an inspiring force as an educator, mentor, administrator, father, husband, friend, family member, community member, and a wonderful presence to all who knew him/ rest in peace dear friend.
Adrian, Beth saw this and sent it to me. I am so sorry for your loss. Know that Beth and I are praying for you and the girls.
