To my very special son,
There is no way a mother can ever get over losing a child, it is so unbearable.
I will never forget your hugs, kisses and telling me you wanted to rub my Rosie checks and calling me mommie.
I will never forget your phone called and text every single night. You will be a very special so for the rest of my life. When it is my time I want you to meet me at the Pearly Gates and walk me through. Remember you said you would tell Jim hello for me. I can still hear you tell me I love you mom just before you passed away. I love you forever and I will see you in heaven. I will love you and miss you forever as you were part of making my life complete
Love forever your

It’s been over 40 years since I saw Mike, we sailed together on the Will Rogers. Mike was a giant then and I’m so sorry I didn’t get to tell him what a incredible human I’ve always thought him to be. Years fade some people from your mind, Mike was not one that could ever fade.
