Sending out thoughts
My thoughts today are with Liz who blogs at Our Fight. Mike is no longer in pain, after his valiant fight with melanoma. I only knew Mike through Liz, his wife, who posted on the MPIP and blogged about their fight. Through a few emails with Liz and her honest posts, I came to feel like I knew her and Mike. They were confronted with this awful cancer early in their marriage and are only in their early 30s now. The honesty, guts, humor, and courage of this young couple touched me deeply. As Liz put it on her blog, At 2:15 p.m., with one hand in my hand, and the other in his mother’s, Mike’ soul left this earth and soared the skies. He is now my very own angel.I will be away from my computer for a few days. I'll catch up with my blogging friends when I get back. Hopefully, I'll have some photographs when I return of something besides my back yard. Oddly, I'm shy about taking pictures when there are strangers around me. That's one thing about Manhattan, although I'll be visiting family there are always a lot of strangers surrounding photo ops but we'll see.
