Sheryl, My sincere condolence on the passing of Michael my classmate. I was unable to attend and see you as my husband and I were at a family funeral in GA. Sending loving thoughts and prayers to you in the days to come. Michael was such a wonderful person and he will truly be missed by me and I am sure his family and friend. May God hold you in the hollow of his loving hand and comfort you at this difficult time.
