Today, four years and two weeks after his passing, I found out my old friend Mike Lenke had passed away. While I hadn't spoken with him in over 15 years, he has always remained very dear to me.

Mike and I became friends at a time in my life (age 15) when he helped me to gain greater confidence in myself, and to believe I could accomplish the things I chose to do. He was like the big brother I never had.

He shared his time, family, wisdom, and humor with me. I remember countless summer days body surfing with him at Will Rogers State or Zuma Beach. Then, there was all those UCLA basketball games; during the heydays, no less.

When I encountered difficult times, I knew I could call on him for council. Even before he became a therapist, he always had the best advice around. He seemed to have perspectives on situations that no one else could see. He was truly remarkable in that way and I believe that helped elevate him to being the practitioner he was.

To Ellie, Michele, Jody and the rest of the family, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Mike you will remain in my heart as long as it's ticking. Thank you for all the memories. I hope we meet again sometime, buddy. RIP.

Dear Ellie and family,

So sorry and sad to hear of Mike's illness and passing. My thoughts have been with you for the last six weeks.

Much love,

Dear Ellie and Family,

I can not express to you how heavy and sad my heart is today upon hearing about the passing of Michael.

He was such an important part of my life who got me through some really difficult times. I am proud to have called him my friend for the last 14 years. His words still ring in my ears to this day. I'm sure he would be pleased in knowing that I am "being good to me". I will never forget him.
