Michael Nye Obituary, Death – Since the very first moment I was able to embrace you in my arms, the trajectory of my life has taken a dramatic turn for the better. To this day, whenever I think about parting ways for the very final time, I am acutely aware that it will never, ever take place again. Michael, I am aware that you have attempted it a great number of times, and that with each try, it has become more challenging for you to do so.
A small part of me still clung to the belief that you were unbeatable and that you would be the one to defy the odds and emerge victorious. The thought of the world existing without you in it is something that I simply cannot fathom. I give you my word that the love I feel for you will last forever. Dearest and most amazing son, I pray that you rest in peace. Michael Nye-Madden 4/22/02 – 2/14/23 Please tell my mother that I tried to commit suicide. It conveys to my mother that I am making an attempt,
even in the instances in which I lied about something. I was only attempting to protect myself from the agony that I was feeling on the inside by acting in this manner. Please accept my sincerest apologies and express them to my mother for the manner in which I have made her anxious and scared her with my rage. My memory is still foggy, but could you please tell my mother that I am aware of the love she has always shown me, how she has helped me develop, and how she has never abandoned me?
My memory is still hazy, but could you please comfort my mother that I am aware of these things? I was there during the entire process of my mother’s slow suicide as she watched portions of me die away, and I saw how much she cried. I asked for your help in letting her know that I tried to get in touch with her. (I wrote this as if Michael were speaking to me personally from his innermost thoughts and feelings. I have no doubt that he never intended for any of us to feel awkward or uneasy in any way.
