Let us give thanks to Jennifer for the flower and gift arrangement that was delivered to the hospital by Dave. Also thanks to Kris for bringing in fresh flowers from her garden.
I am still in shock and am heartbroken over the loss of our dear friend. I had grown close with Mike in the months before the pandemic and more so in the last year as our small group kept up the BP tradition. I always looked forward to seeing him a couple times a week and having conversations about many aspects of life. I considered him a friend and not merely an acquaintance. It seems it took only about 6 weeks from being short of breath to his passing. I have had a lot of loss in my life and this one is particularly hard. I am finding it hard to comprehend.
