Debbie and family, My heart goes out to al of you. Mike and all of you were in my prayers throughout each day after I read Bev Bontrager's first post on Face Book. You remain in my prayers. I continue to pray for comfort and peace for each of you. I have lost my father and my husband. I promise you this......you will not always hurt like you do now. It will get better. It will take time, but it does get better. May God help you through this difficult loss.

I know that your hearts are breaking for you all have lost a wonderful man with such a big heart. He opened his heart and life to his family and his friends. The great loss that his friends and family are feeling is testimony to the kind of man he was. He gave himself to others...always ready to help in anyway he could. My heart is aching for all of you and I can't express in words how sorry I am for all of you. I only can continue to ask God to comfort your hearts in the coming days and years. I loved this man and I love his family.
