Since the age of 12, Michael had fell prey to drugs. He remained in rehab until he became clean. Marie recalled how his baby who was once cute and so fun, started having deep bouts of depression. In his last conversation, he had told his mother that he feels alone, had no friends and is in great despair.

Commemorating her dear one

In a log Instagram post, the iconic singer opened about the struggles of her life. She initially mentioned her childhood and how she had to create her own name among her talented brothers. Marie then addressed the sorrow of her lost son. She confessed to missing him a lot in her own way.

The brokenhearted mother revealed that Michael's favorite song was Pie Jesu. He loved it when she sang opera. Marie's Saturday’s Symphonic show was for him and it made her feel his presence. She wrote:

 Michael’s passing left a hole in my heart that will never be filled until I see him again.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

During the meet and greets @FlamingoVegas I have asked what you would like me to write about in my #Sunday messages. The number one topic: What do you do when life gets really tough? Harold B. Lee called [life’s tribulations], “the inevitable tragedies of life.” We don’t like the sound of the word inevitable, but it is an accurate term. Mortal life is filled with challenges, trials, setbacks, disappointments, misfortune, tragedy, disaster, loss, pain, suffering and sorrow…. When I was young I wondered where I would fit in my very talented family.I was the only girl and wanted to sing too, but could I? My brothers had already made a name for themselves and I wondered if there was even room for me. My Mother always believed in me and she would say “Marie you have a very strong voice, don’t be like others, be you.” And then one day I heard the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland.It was as though Judy was singing those words right to me. I still fight feelings of inadequacy, but rather than give in to them, I remember my Mom believed in me. I hear those negative thoughts just like you do when I try something new...”what makes you think you can do that?” But as I let God lead me to new things, I find it’s possible! Someone recently asked me why after all the years of country, pop and broadway success I chose to sing Opera? Well, it is because my son Michael loved it. Michael’s passing left a hole in my heart that will never be filled until I see him again. When I sing his favorite genre and more specifically the song “Pie Jesu”, I can feel his presence and that brings me such joy! I went to his grave Friday when I arrived in Utah and I told him that the Saturday’s Symphonic show was for him. 🥰 The photo was from last night where I performed with the Utah Symphony Orchestra in Park City, Utah. The mountains I sang in front of are my metaphor of climbing and never giving up. Remember “when life gives you more than you can stand... kneel”. IT WORKS!

Amazing message. Thank you for sharing your personal experiences. I lost my amazing husband last year to ALS. The only thing that brings me peace is our Heavenly Father & our loving Savior. They are there for each one of us. ♥️

Thank you for today’s message. Two years ago went through a lot. Paul and my mom going through health problems and very sick. We lost my mom within 4 months, Paul thankfully came brought his surgeries okay and today is doing great. I wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t eating. Drives to nursing home All I could do was pray. I prayed in the shower, I prayed while laying in the hospital. It helped.

May Michael's soul rest in peace. He seemed like a very compassionate boy who just couldn't handle a dark life. Share this and support his incredible mom.
