Neighbor Lisa stopped by with my Girl Scout cookies today. In Mike’s house-husband days, he saw more of Lisa and her two small girls than I did. She was working the night of Mike’s service, but her husband stopped by with the girls afterward. Many of the hundred or so people in the house that evening commented on the adorable little girls in their red pajamas. Mike’s passing was their first exposure to death, and it was hard on them. Today, Lisa and I shared a glass of wine and I showed her my favorite photo of Mike, which appears on the “About Mike” page. Lisa’s emotional response took me back. But such was Mike’s impact on many of the people who knew him.
