  1. Pat and Ann, our most heartfelt condolences to you and to your entire family, and to all others who were close to Michael and Miles. We can only pray that Jesus has Michael and his baby Miles held gently and lovingly in his arms. We choose to believe that and that is the peace they now experience…

  2. To the Family of Michael Jordan and Miles,
    I was a Special Education Teacher at Lummi Nation for 5 years. Mr. Jordan was my co-worker in this department. The world is losing a great man and wonderful teacher, but his memory will go on. He touched many hearts at Lummi Nation. Sending my condolences…

    Ms. A

    To all who loved Michael, I was the middle school special education teacher at Lummi until this year and for 6 of the years with Michael. He helped me daily cope with the challenges of working there and we shared the love of our students. He got the kids after they left me. he would make a point everyday to tell me which of my kids needed praise and which needed a kick in the butt. He had such a good and light heart and was so important to me and the whole school. He was a good teacher friend and he shared his love of his son with everyone he met. I am so sorry for all of us and so terribly sorry for your loss.
    Love to you, Bekah Zener

  4. You don’t know me but I met both Micheal and Miles when they were in Laguna Beach. Micheal was obviously a devoted father and husband. Miles was a ray of sunshine.

    I am so sorry for your loss and the trauma of this horrible tragedy.
    I cannot imagine what you all are going through.

    Sincerely,

    Anna McErlane
