Mary, I'm so sorry to hear Michael's struggle is becoming more difficult, but very grateful that you have let us know how he is doing. He and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers.

I was just speaking to Nan yesterday and we were both wondering how he was doing, and hoping he knew that his friends here at Passions are thinking of him daily. Please give him an extra hug from me, and take care during this difficult time.

hugging all of you,  wishing for this hug to be within your arms as you each hug this gentle man, and a strong healing heart hug for all of you.
Michael, we will always love you, and treasure  the gifts you left behind. And I believe your spirit will paint the skies in your unique colors as you wave goodbye.

May God in His mercy ease Michael's pain

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Michael, Mary & Chris.

Mary, asking God to send his angels to surround Michael and help him on his journey home.

My prayers continue for you and your family during this most difficult and sad time. I applaud your courage and  diligence; it has been a long road for you all.

May the Christ child, Jesus bring you both comfort.

hugs, Marti

I received an email from Michael's wife, Mare this afternoon with the latest news on Michael.  I've copied and pasted it below.  Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for he and his family...I know it means alot to them all!  It sure does to me.

"Michael agreed today to be admitted for a few days to the actual hospice house.... they will try to get his pain level under control.. and the extreme swelling in his legs and feet reduced.  I'm glad he finally agreed... that's where he needs to be.

Chris and I will be going over to see him shortly. His sister and his niece are taking turns sitting with him."

Thanks for the update Martie. I breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Michael will get that awful pain and swelling under control, and hopefully his wife and son can get a little rest and possibly some peace of mind. God bless their loving hearts.   Chris

Mary, this is the right place for Michael's needs at this time, and what a good decision for his care, although I am sure it was a difficult one to make.  You all must be having an extremely hard time right now, and my prayers continue to be with you.

Dear Mary:

I can't help but feel relived that Michael is going to a hospice house.  They will be able to do more for him, in controlling what is happening, than you can at home. It will also, I hope, give you a chance for a little more rest, which I'm sure you sorely need. Thanks for keeping us posted. You know you all are always in my prayers!

Love
Betty Lou

I received another email from Michael's wife, Mare, tonight...I've copied and pasted it below.

"Just a quick note to let you all know what's going on.. and to not expect to hear much from me for a few days at least. Michael is home from hospice for Christmas... but the doctor said he has to have someone with him EVERY second.. literally... so I'll be with him most of the time... when no one else is available.  Sleeping in there too.  

They literally said they'd be surprised if he made it through Christmas...     

Just wanted to let everyone know.. and I think you all for being there... and caring.

Love,
Mare"

Mare,
I appreciate as do the rest here at Passions the fact that the computer is not a priority now
as you must be worn out and going through a very rough time.

But I do appreciate you taking the time to let Martie know so she can forward any news on to us.

This news tonight is very very sad.

Please tell Michael we love him...
and will miss him..and when he feels it's time, to go with God.

He will never ever be forgotten....never.
I pray tonight for a peaceful and painless transition, when the time comes.

Peace be with you, Michael and Chris.


  

Thank you Martie for passing on this update.

Mary, on this Christmas Eve, please know that our prayers are with you and Michael, and the other members of our Passions' family who are in need of the love of our Father.  So many of us know this time of wait, and wonder; knowing also that we go through the motions of doing our best for the ones we love.

My prayers are with you, Michael, and Chris.

Sending out my love wrapped in quiet calm.
This calm filled with serenity and pain free
days of tomorrow. I brush my hands across your fevered brow and send a prayer of tranquility.
God bless dear Michael and family.
Hugs and Love coming your way from Ohio

Dear Mary:

Sending my love and prayers to you and Michael and your family.  I know what this waiting is like, to some degree, having gone through it with several family members.
My thoughts are with you every day!

Love

May the celebration of our Lord's birth comfort you at this heartbreaking time. He came that we should have peace, knowing the joy of everlasting life awaits.

May we celebrate the earthly life of preparation for the unending heavenly one with our Savior.

Please, Lord, ease the tension, sending angels to surround and lift their heavy hearts, I pray.

God bless you,
   Rae

Heart hugs to you. I've been thinking of Michael today, and of you Mary, and Christopher. A scented sweet candle is lit, and I am wishing for you, a holiday sharing your love.
