Guest katie Posted June 26, 2003 Share Posted June 26, 2003 We lost a true hero, our friend Mike. We never met him, I never even spoke to him, but his being became alive thru Mrs. Mike's postings. Shannon and Mike became members of our family, occupying our thoughts and prayers as we rooting them on their amazing journey and tenacious fight with lung cancer. They became the example in which to live by, the way we should all live and fight against lung cancer. In Shannon's postings, Mike became real - a friend, a brother, a husband, a dad - someone we all knew. We could sense his voracious stubborness, his humor, his wit and his incredible strength. In Shannon's devotion, and awe inspired hope, we could also imagine a great man who admired and loved his wife in return, a man who was greatful and deserving of the kind of love she had for him. I hope that one day I will be the kind of wife that loves her husband the way you did yours. I hope that everyday, Mike's spirit keep you in peace and loving memories. I hope that everyday, everyone here remembers your determination and your will and devotion to Mike. We have all learned so much from you and from Mike, your love and your life together. There are no words to adequately express how sorry I am. I wrote this because I could not stop crying - and I became so angry at this disease - so bitter at all it does. But in remembering you and Mike, and your incredible faith and love, helps us to go on. Thank you for sharing him with us. Thank you for being here with us. May God comfort you and your family as Mike begins again, in a place without pain, discomfort, or sickness. In a place with no cancer. your friend always, Katie Brown Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
