Shortly after midnight yesterday, we were awakened from a sound sleep by the ringing of our cell phone. Shocked and scared Ms Pat jumped up and ran to the phone in the living room. I listened carefully as I heard her say "Hello",,,,,,,, then , I heard her say "Oh GOD",,,,":No. Please NO"
It was Karen, our Son Mikel's wife. Mikel had passed away in his sleep during the night. Mikel is my oldest son. He was 55 years old, retired Military and living in Tucson, AZ.
We were on the phone most of the day yesterday and will leave for Tucson early this morning. Thank God Rollie and Gina are here with us. They will be taking us to Tucson and will help us as we try to deal with all the arrangements for Mikel's funeral. It was just a short two years ago that we were dealing with the arrangements for my youngest son Scott's funeral. We are in total shock as we pray to our Lord and are listening for his answers.
I will not be posting a Blog for a while as we pray for strength to help us through this. We hope to have more answers later. Meanwhile we ask for your prayers for Mikel's wife and two boys ages 12 and 15 and for our family.
Mike and Pat
