Dear Lucille,
My heart goes out to you and the family regarding Mike's passing. I just heard the news, and had understood from the Saurers that Mike was under hospice care. I admired Mike in many ways. Certainly through work, but most of all through the wonderful times we shared outside of work; particularly our Gourmet Group get-togethers. Remember the time the guys did the dinner - the Chinese feast and Mike did the main course!
In any event I am so very sorry for your loss and I can certainly relate to it. I am so thankful that I was able to spend a little time with you guys when I was last in Colorado. You will grieve, but keep in mind you were Mike's angel here on earth. Things will get better. You have family close by and many friends for support. You are a very strong woman..

God Bless Mike and You.
Love, Tom
