Sue....thanks so much for sharing this beautiful tribute to Mike with us. We always seem to learn so much about people from their obituaries. From reading Mike's obituary, I can tell what an impact he had on his community and his family. I already knew what a wonderful wife he had!!!

Oh, Sue, I can tell from this wonderful tribute to Mike that he was really a very special man that contributed so much to make his world a better place. You must be so proud to have been his wife.

What Ginny said is so true. There IS safety in numbers. Having others to share your feelings with will definitely help to see you through the days, weeks, months and years ahead.

GOD BLESS YOU, MY FRIEND! I know it hurts!
