Condolences to you, Kim, Bonnie, family, and friends in your loss of a too-young Mike. I became re-acquainted with Mike during our tennis playing years. He was a good sport and so friendly.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
I know you will miss him and there will always be a spot in your heart for him. Kim, fill that hole with the love and strength God will give you, especially over the next few days. He will sustain you.
Every time I see you, you have that beautiful smile of yours or are laughing. You are such a positive person, that will also help you so much during this time.
God's blessings to all of you. May He hold you in His arms and comfort you during your difficult times.
