Hi friends....Here is an email from Mare received this morning...she said Michael was going to call me, but he hasn't so far.  I'll let you know when he does.

"He's not doing well... the doctors think he prob won't make it beyond this weekend.. it's very hard. I've been with him 24/7 since he came home from hospice.  Please let everybody at Passions know..
Thanks...

Love,
Mary"

May the Angels light the way, hold Michael's hands and guide him safely Home, surrounded by Love.

My candle is lit.

Thank you dear Martie for keeping us updated.

Praying for strength and Divine assistance in these hours of struggle.

Hugs across the world to dear Michael.

I spoke with Michael on the telephone just now....it was good to talk to him, but so hard to understand what he was saying.  

Thank you for your continued prayers for his peaceful passing.

Michael Mary and family...the candle remains lit and please let Michael know how much he has touched the lives of everyone who has come to know him through his artistry and words.  May his journey home be free of pain and filled with peace.

An email from Mare today:

"I sat with Michael all morning... holding his hand and talking to him, hoping he could hear me. He has been in sleep mode for two days straight... in and out.. but mostly out.  

I have read that people can still hear you... when they are like that, so I sat there and just talked..about things we had done together over the years... the good things...none of the bad... about how he would be healthy again in Heaven... about how his parents were waiting for him, my father was waiting for him to help with a garden... and how his friend Monty was waiting, to see him again.  He would squeeze my hand in response to alot of things.. so I know he was hearing me.  

Told him I loved him... and that I probably didn't deserve him... that he was a good man...  and that Chris and I would be ok... that it was time for him to let go of this life...and start his new life in Heaven... with no troubles, no worries, no pain.. and a brand new body.  

Talked about lots of other things too.. just rambling... but it felt right. I'm glad we had these days at home together, because we just checked him back into Hospice at 3 today..... and the nurse says it may be a few days...but I doubt he'll ever come home.  He is such a fighter.

I told him today was the third anniversary of Monty's death, and that it was ok if he passed on the same day.  I was terrified of that before, but I've been thinking about it over the past few days, and I think it is ok.. might even be fitting actually.  I just want his suffering to end.    

This has really hit me hard now... Now that he's just laying there.. unable to really stand up alone... it's like.. "Hey.. he's REALLY going to die ... "  It's hard to explain.  I find myself with very swollen eyes again... I feel God around me..."

*sigh* heart hugs to you, Mary, Chris, Michael

*touching the screen softly, wishing Michael all the colors of the rainbow in his final moments, and hoping he truly knows how many of us loved him*

God is surrounding you and Michael and Chris now Mare.
It was good..good for you to talk to Michael
about anything and everything..and I'm sure he could hear you.

I pray now for Michael to have a peaceful passing..
That God now lifts up his weary body and sets his soul free.

Bless you dear lady...hugging the three of you.

Mary,
I'm so sorry this is happening...I keep Michael in my thoughts daily...he is for sure a fighter. I hope you and Chris are doing ok with all this, as ok as one can be under these circumstances. My heart is with you, Michael and Chris. My prayers are that this transition will be a peaceful one for Michael, and for you and Chris as well.
My love to you all

Mare, you've done all of the right things, not only for Michael, but for you, as well.  This is the bridge that life builds, and only the givers know when it is time to cross it...

you did it just right, Mary...just right.

And He is holding you Very close...

Love,

I can recall during my own Father's last hours how I told him that all was well and that his work here was done. I promised him I would watch over the family and that he could now let go. "Let go, Papa," and the following morining in his sleep, he did. The worried furrows were gone from his brow and a sense of peace glowed from his face. It was both a sad time but full of relief and respite from the empyshema that ravaged his body. I only pray that Michael will pass this well and that all around him feel the sense of relief that I felt at that moment knowing Michael will be with our Father and free from all pain in a new body. Dear Lord, I pray that you guide him into your arms. Amen.
