created memory in Michael E Logsdon
July 15th was Michael Logsdon's Birthday! Everyone who knew him remembers him as a very special and inspired soul. I had the pleasure of knowing Michael briefly, but know that his energy is alive and well at EMG, in the hearts of those who knew him, and those who carry his dream forward.

created memory in Michael E Logsdon
We're thinking about Mike. Although it is coming up on two years, it seems like we just spoke to him yesterday. We miss you !!!.......The D'Ambrosia Family
You are missed with each one that passes. But I know you are watching over us all and mastering the Art of being an Angel. Thank you Uncle Mickey!
To have known Michael was too love him. He was a light that shinned so brightly where ever he was. He accepted everyone for just who they were not for their stature in life, wealth, faith or color. Once you met him for some reason you never forgot him. You know how sometimes you meet a person and they just trigger something in you that makes you immediately think that person is special? You always knew when you saw him next; his smile would be there to welcome you. Most of all "I miss his smile".
I do truly believe that there are angles among us and he was one of God's angels sent into this world to share his special gift of love, kindness, support and concern for others. A teacher to show us the way we should be living life. Staying positive even when things seem so dark, staying strong even when we feel so weak. He was a leader in the family to show strength in an even brighter tomorrow.
He used every moment of his life here on earth to help us hear strive to see life’s positives. I pray everyday that I can become a stronger person, better and more giving and that I too can show by example. I talk to him everyday and ask him to help guide me in the right direction.
I am thankful for Patti for all her love and support and the happiness she gave too Michael during their life together. I am thankful for her strength in continuing to keep family tradition alive and I am thankful for all my wonderful memories of the times we’ve shared. His humor, his big kid in a candy store attitude and his positive ways influenced many of us and our lives are so much better because of him.
Memories of Michael always bring a smile to my face and I will carry them with me in my heart forever.
I am so grateful to Kristen for creating this page for my dad. And to everyone sharing thoughts and memories, it's hard to describe the warmth all of your kind words bring to my heart.
My dad once called me his rogue child and since he has passed I have come to realize that he was my compass, always there to help point me in the right direction. It has been tough living life without him...without my compass I have been a bit out of sync. But I know if I let his death stop me from living a full and happy life I would be dishonoring everything that he stood for and all that he was. When I search for strength in moments of great sadness, I find myself realizing over and over how grateful I am to be his daughter and that his strength is part of what makes me who I am. It's the part of him that's in me that is getting me through this very very painful loss. There will never be a day when I will be able to say that my heart won't ache for him, but in honor of his spirit I will always try my hardest to live as happily and as graciously as he did.
You were one in a trillion, made of stuff that is very rare and truly amazing. I will always miss you. Love...Karey
Michael Logsdon, uncle Micky or just plain Mick. I am a marry-in to the Logsdon family. My wife Heather is Mick's niece, daughter of his oldest brother Joe. I have been in this family for 10 years now, Wow! Has It really has been 10 years? Well you know the saying "Time flies when you are having fun." As a born-in,marry-in or hugged-in family member there was always that day when you had to meet the whole family and this was a day to remember. For me it was the summer of 1998 at Piney Run Park for a Fourth of July celebration. We arrived early, as a matter of fact we were the first ones there. My girlfriend at the time Heather had said to me It will be fun for you to meet my family. Fun! Well, with
her grandparents Joe and Edna then Michael, Dave, Bruce, Ron, and Tim as my wife's set of Uncles and Tina has her aunt, their spouses, children, grandchildren. In laws and out laws, cousins, their extended family and friends it sure it was fun. Fun for her to watch my mind crumble under the confusion of all of the names. But, as I look back with 20/20 vision of hindsight I can remember some really key moments. That day as I was introduced to the family it went pretty much like this, hi, I'm Dave, hi, I am Bruce, hi I Ron, and thats Timmy. Then there was a man carrying a bushel of Crabs out of the corner of my eye. He was smiling the whole time walking from the car to the gazebo. It was a really hot day so I wanted some thing cold to drink, I walk over the row of 100 coolers and was overwhelmed again. Wow! What do I do? Should I have brought my own? I was hot, thirsty and very confused. Then the man who was carrying the crabs, an obvious brother to Heather's dad, must have been so aware to notice this new person to the clan wandering aimless around the coolers said, Hey Man! How ya doin'? You look hot, are you thirsty? Take your pick. He proceeded to open up every cooler 1,2,3,4,5.. Take your pick. Huh? You wanna a beer? Here have one of these and handed me an iced cold bottled Budweiser. Then he stuck out his hand and said, "who are you with?" Huh. I'm with Heather. He smiled even bigger, then said, "Well if you are with Heather then I am your uncle Mick." He said he was my uncle Mick. Wow! Now that is acceptance.
To be continued...
A real Gentleman who loved his family, the world has lost a wonderful man. I knew Michael growing up and through high school and will never forget his smile and kind heart. My deepest sympathy to all of his family and I hope in time you'll find comfort in all of the wonderful memories he's left behind.
