Tina and Mike,
I was so sorry to hear about Michael's passing. This is a very difficult time for your family. Know that others are thinking and praying for you. I remember he and Amy riding their bikes on Carlton Court and enjoying childhood.

When Amy died the one thing that helped us to regroup was counseling. After some time has passed I suggest grief counseling. It truly helps.

Stay strong,

I remember Michael sitting in the chicken coop with me, the chicken lady. I was always amazed by his connection with all breathing things, he was very special in life, and continues to be so in spirit. After reading, I understand the rock. When the pain is unbearable, remember, he is by your side, as you always were for him. All my love and prayers, lynn
