HE IS GONE~Mike Is Gone!

My brother-in-law, MIKE,
left us around 6:30.
His wife said she felt like 
he was in the room with her...
and then he was gone.

This is how I choose to remember him.
Happy and whole.
Full of life and vibrant energy.
He lived to make our world green
and a better place to live.
He was in on the ground floor
of wind technology and spent
his career working to make
wind energy a viable resource.
My sister-in-law and her two daughters
will need some time to adjust
to life without a man who
was so vital to their lives.

This is the first one of this family's
"siblings or in-laws" that this generation
has lost.
It will leave a hole.

Please keep his family in your prayers
and send up your well wishes 
for them.

RIP Mike!

I will be gone for a bit...
but I will be back.
