Michael was living in Wickenburg at the time of his death but was coming home from Yarnell Hill direction towards Congress with his friend who was driving and the accident was the corner before going to Congress where the pickup was over corrected and flipped.

Michael was the first grand child for grandmother Dolley Bodiroga and grandfather Obren Bodiroga favorite Aunt Cheryll Doom beautiful niece he met in heaven Jenna Jenkins and cousin Holly Bodiroga along with great grandparents Simo Bodiroga and Mila Bodiroga and Martin Penrod and Frances Adeline (Brown)Penrod are together in HEAVEN.

There is no way I can put into words your entire life. It would take books. You did amazing things all through your life and I was always proud of my beautiful blue eyed boy with the dimple only on your right cheek. Everything about you is in my heart and with me daily from the day you were born and forever until we are reunited in heaven. Your love and compassion was tremendous for your family and friends and I believe that is what is expected of us through Jesus. You had a great character about you and always respectful to everyone you met. Most honest person I have ever known. You were so strong, loving and beautiful as my grown up son. God definitely blessed me when he gave me you. I still hear you telling me "I Love You, Mom"! I LOVE YOU MY PRECIOUS MICHAEL.


I am in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely Home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the Valley of shade?
Oh! But Jesus' Love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I Love you dearly, still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will,
There is still work waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now while life remaineth
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When, that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come.
