Open Letter to Michael


We are all saddened by your loss of Melinda.  Her struggle and subsequent victory has been an inspiration to us all. Thank you for allowing all of us to be a part of your and Melinda's lives!

You know, through the years you have allowed each of us to comfort you.  Your humility, has allowed each of us to serve you and your family in ways; that frankly, I would not have ever thought of.  Not something that would come easy to a Marine like yourself. Yes, we have been blessed.   From the first diagnose, we cried with you, prayed with you and we  rejoiced with each remission; while we were saddened with each relapse.  And finally, we celebrated with your family and friends at Melinda's memorial service.  I think it went just as she planned it.  No crying, no sadness, just remembrance of her wonderful life here . Yes, she is a pistol!

So, today, we continue to morn with you as a brother.  Thank you again for opening up and allowing us to be part of your life.  We will continue to pray for you.  And if you need anything, please do not be afraid to ask.  We would hate to miss the blessings.
