You are always in His Presence and wherever you are is never far from that love you share with all of us remaining. It is the resurrecting energy that never forgets our purpose in this moment. Until we come to that completeness let us remember the One who loves us greatly.

Our 24th anniversary is May 5th this Sunday and Kimberly's Facebook message told me of the dream she had of her grandpa Michael and I couldn't have wanted a better 24th anniversary present than to hear how much he told her that he loved me through her dream and how he looks out for us all- I want to celebrate that day in Gold Beach in the place he loved....

It was a year ago this month that I was with you Michael in Gold Beach for your birthday and Christmas...I never wanted to leave you we had such a wonderful time together with our son Chewy-the chow chow. It was so much fun to wake up to the snow fakes that melted as soon as they hit the ground....I never thought I would not see you again when I left to come back for my doctor's and all that comp stuff that seems so nothing and stupidly slow, a never ending project that has no heart . I was planning a future for just us to be together at the end of the rainbow...when work ceases and our time is endless sharing. You always said you were going to have to push me around in a wheel chair if I didn't retire, well I didn't get the chance to look after you as I needed to-I miss you! Now your 55th birthday as I remember you this month and always...

In real life, there may be a lot more carry-out than candlelight. More quick kisses than cuddling. More running around than relaxing together. But when real life is the life I have with you. All that suff doesn't seem to matter. We have each other and that is enough for me... Birthday Blessings Michael! with Love Anne- Wherever you are God is and all is well in Christ Jesus (sentiments on our 23rd aniversary card that never got sent)

Rest in peace grandpa. Thank you for helping raise me into the young women I am today! I'm so glad to have had you in my life for the time I did. Although I may not have always shown my appreciation towards you words can't express how thankful I am for everything you've done! Ill always remember your bright smile and strange sense of Humor! You've done nothing to deserve the pain but everything to

"Our Dear Mike... truly a servant of Our Lord, you ministered to each & everyone who knew you merely by being fully present with each individual.
