Kathy, I am so sorry to hear about Mike. It hasn’t been that long since we sat and talked at the VFW. I’m glad I got to know Mike some at our get-togethers. I know that he was a good man and a gifted singer. It’s terrible to suffer the deaths of our loved ones, and you’ve had your share of this. Despite these sorrows, God is there for us in His mercy. May God keep Mike in His care and be with you to help you through this.
