I have just learned of the passing of your husband, and I am so sorry to hear this news. My husband lost his dad in October, and I know how hard that has been for his mom, so I understand some of the things you are feeling and experiencing as well. Be assured of our prayers for you and the family.

Earlene, I am very sorry to learn of Mike's passing.  You and the children have my deepest sympathies.  I always looked forward to seeing him at the Hudson Reunion in SC and hearing what he had to say.  His interest and care for each of us showed through.  We will miss him.  God bless you as you go forward without him.
