I was so sorry to hear about Michael. You have had to face more loss recently than a person ought to. I know how hard that can be, having lost three people very dear to me, including a sister in three weeks last year. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. May God give you strength and comfort at this time. Debby Malmberg
