My very dear friend Mike went home to be with Jesus lastnight, after battling cancer for several years...he was 69. I knew him most of my life, and I will miss him greatly. He was always like a second dad to me, and someone I was proud to call my friend. Even though there is an empty spot in my heart that is sad, I also feel very blessed to have had such a compassionate & kind person be a part of my childhood and adult life as well. Even when I got married, Mike always treated my hubby as if he'd known him all his life as well...hubs was always amazed because he had never met anyone like that before.
To Mike...I love you and miss you...see you on the other side my friend. You were a true blessing in my life and I will always cherish our time together, our talks, and your bear hugs :-)
