    My heart goes out to you during this time of sadness.  I am so sorry to hear of your loss.  I often heard your stories about Mike, although I don't think I ever met him.  Because I know you, however, I know he had to be an amazing person.  Here's a poem by Rumi that inspires me around any loss…

    "The wound is the place where the Light enters you."
