I know. I have been silent for some time now and not because I am sick. I have had personal reasons for my silence. I apologize if you have felt hurt by my silence. However, I have continued to follow Mike’s and Anna’s blogs and want you to know how sad I am that Mike’s health has taken this turn. He is my friend now, despite the fact that we have never met. And I am grieving deeply even while I celebrate all he has done with his life. Thanks for lending your prayers or respect or support to Mike and his family as they continue to handle this tough situation with transparency, unflinching honesty, and hope that others may benefit.
