I believe his name was Joel. He left behind a beautiful wife and 4 young children. He was a great man not at all a dude.

I just want to give my condolences to his family, Joel was one of my favorite customers and he will be missed. He was one of the most politest guys you could ever meet, extremely patient when we were busy, and never made a fuss when we screwed up.

Mike, I'm Joel's mom. I know it must have been hard for you to come upon him like that. Not knowing what happened haunts me, do you remember what time you saw Joel, did you see what happened, did he try to swerve or stop? Mike, I need to know what happened to my precious son, if you can help me in any way, I appreciate it.

Susan and Dawn, thank you for your kind words describing Joel for anyone not lucky enough to know him. He was such a gentle soul, so giving, so caring, my heart is broken in a million pieces and the emptiness is unbearable. Thank you for your kind words and thoughts. xox

I'm not sure why anyone decided to start this blog in the first place, but you have now opened up the flood gates to your karamic retribution. I don't know if the guilt was killing you or if you thought you were some kind of bad ass. What you have done, mike, is take away a blessing from this world. I have been through all of this with this family, and they are the last people in the world to deserve it. There are now 4 children without a father and a loving wife without her husband. I hope that weighs on you every day for the rest of your pathetic miserable life. And if ever thought that you were going to get away with any of this you should have never posted anything here. you set yourself up for this. Joel was an amazing person and a gift to anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. You took that away from everyone! Unlike you sir, he will be missed and always loved and never forgotten. I'm sure the world will feel a much better place knowing that you won't have a part of it. You have caused pain that cannot be erased and broken hearts that cannon be mended. You are sick for portraying this like you tried to do the right thing. If you saw the accident, or came across it, why wouldn't you call for help.?! Oh, because you were the CAUSE! Every night when you close your eyes I hope that scene haunts you and the guilt eats you alive, like the pain you caused does to Joel's family. That 'dude,' that you so casually call him was a God-send and you just SUCK!

If you are reading this and know any information, please contact the livingston county police department. Ann, from Muskegon you seem to know something. Why are you just now asking this?

I thought I could never hurt more than I already did. The thought of someone not just causing this but leaving him alone in that ravine is like a knife through my heart. Joel never turned away from anyone in need and that someone knowingly let this happen, that caused us this immeasurable loss, this devastating heartache..what kind of monster does this...How can my baby rest in peace while his babies are still left to be raised without him. How can we ever come to terms with this, it just keeps hurting more and more..I want to comfort all you who are hurting but I don't even know how to comfort myself. God help us.

Ann, I'm Joel's mum. If you're a mother, plese try to imagine your heart broken in a million pieces. If you can help us , please, I beg of you. Imagine how your own mother would feel if she lost you.There just could never be a heartache so great. Imagine you were Marcie and how she feels being left with four children to raise without their daddy. Please, Ann, help us...

Kath, This Ann person is not responding because
(a) she knows nothing and has nothing to do allday, but blog about things she knows nothing about.
(b) is some rejected grilfriend of this "MIKE" just trying to get even with him.
(c)has no human compassion.
WHICH IS IT ANN?? How can you know information about someone that Kills another person, then lay you head on a pillow and go to sleep every night, get up every morning look at yourself in the mirror, go about you day. We as a family do not go even 1 second of EACH day without wondering why God Took "Joel" a loving Son,Brother,Husband,Father,Nep hew,Friend and left us with some empty soul with no love of self,or anyone else. It's been almost two months Ann. How much longer?

This is the address of the person who knows what happened to Joel. Maybe I will just stand outside and hold up a picture of Joel for you to see everyday till you tell the truth. Your parents can not protect you. Justice will prevail

If anyone who reads this blog knows anything, they need to come forward with it. If they want to be anonymous then that is fine put in a false name. My family and I need to know what happened that day. As you all can see Joel was Amazing in everyway, he had the best heart in the world. And if it would have been Joel coming across a crash, whether it was his fault or just an accident he would have stayed and did what he knew was right. So I'm asking, pretty much begging, if you know anything at all please let someone know.
