Thank you all so very much for everything. I don't have the words the love and support from as so many have said tonight from people "I don't know" Maybe it should be said that it's people we haven't met face to face. Mike and I know each and everyone of you. We have shared your joy and your pain. You are the greatest friends we have.
Thank you for the letters to mumbling jumba thread. It's beautiful, and it attests to the kindness and the humor that Mike had. He never understood until just very recently how much he meant to everyone here. I take solace knowing that he will carry on in your hearts.
Mike leaves behind his mom, his three children, and one very heartbroken wife. He certainly did not tiptoe through life. We had a wonderful 12 years together, everyday was an adventure and at the end we knew that we loved each other.
Thank you all again.
