  1. So very sorry for the loss of your brother, prayers and comfort for your family.



  3. I knew Mike for 5 years during time I was a caregiver at Webers, then ResCare. He was strong in body and in spirit. I think he was burdened with physical pain he expressed as best he could. Now he is at peace and free of pain. He will be missed

  4. I am so sorry we lost Mikey. Our family loved him very much. He is now in Gods house with Aunt Bobbie and Uncle Harry. Out of his physical pain and mental anguish.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Mike for 23 years. I was his caregiver up until this past May. I have a lot of good memories of him. He will be missed.

  10. My deepest sympathy to everyone involved, may God bless all of you in this difficult time

  11. Theo Brubaker :

    I met Mike when he first arrived in Wellington at Weber’s Park Place group home. I was very moved and proud to watch him adjust and grow in a family/community environment. He enriched my life without ever trying or even aware that he was doing that. He was a great human being and I considered him a friend. God doesn’t waste anybody or anything. My condolences to the extended Vanek family.

  12. Marge Abraham,retired group home manager :

    I remember Mike with warm thoughts. He was one of the original residents at Wellington Estates and one of our favorite people. He was unforgettable and very special. My sympathy to all his family.

  13. Margaret Stevens :
