We have just read your entry in the blog with the news of Mike's death and are filled with great sadness and sorrow for you and Allison, Alex and Charlotte. In the too short time we knew Mike we too came to love his 'joie du vivre'. I was thinking today that just last summer he was matching me wheelbarrow for wheelbarrow moving compost at the community garden.
It was just about 3 weeks ago that we dropped over for coffee and Mike was up and serving us and so gracious and kind. We will really miss him and are hoping that you can find some comfort in knowing how much this island community cherishes for you both.
With great fondness, Norah and Peter
