    please accept my condolences, Coni, on the loss of your husband. My prayers have been for you and your family to withstand the hole left in your hearts and for that hole be filled with the joy and love in the memories of Mike. May Pat and Sue know I said special prayers for them also with love. I only had him in my life for under four years when we were so young. Glad to know he lived a love filled life , so now he may be at peace.
