I don't even know where to start
with this post.
To say we are in a state of shock
would be an understatement.
A while back I did a post
about MyHero's friend, Mike.
MyHero and Mikey have been friends
since they were young.
They drank together when they were young
and gave the devil a chase down the alley
on more than one occasion.
In their early adulthood they settled down.
Mike led a jail ministry and witnessed
about how God had changed his life
to anyone that would listen
When Mike and his wife were younger they
had a band.
He had a phenomenal voice and sang like
Kenny Rogers and they made beautiful
These are pictures of Jan & Mike
each taken with their youngest son, Nate.
I am stealing Nate's pictures but
I don't think he will mind.
About 20 years ago Mike had
almost the same cancer
that MyHero has now.
He beat it but lost a tremendous amount of weight
and has never been able to eat properly
He became weaker and weaker and lost
his ability to do much of anything.
MyHero convinced him to get a feeding tube
several weeks ago.
Mike started to put on weight
and was feeling better and brighter.
He went back to leading his bible study group
and was 'plugged in' to life again.
This morning, unexpectedly, God called
We are all in shock at this point because
he was feeling better than he had felt in years.
Maybe we all needed to see the
before he became the
NEW MIKE in Heaven.
He leaves behind a beautiful wife, Jan,
Two sons, Chad & Nate,
a sweet daughter, Terra,
(plus their spouses)
and beautiful grandchildren.
Please pray for them as they navigate the waters
Also, pray for John/MyHero as he mourns the
loss of yet another long-time friend.
We also lost another friend, Roger,
earlier this week.
I have not had an OK to do a post about him
so I will make this brief.
Please just send prayers and healing thoughts
to his family, too-his wife and two sons
and spouses and grandkids.
God will know who you are talking about.
Just say you are praying for
Roger-who was bigger than life!
ps. He was a musician, too...
I bet he and Mikey are up there
setting those angel toes a-tapping.
Not sure Heaven was ready for
either of them!!!
