Michael left a hole in my heart, and went to be with Jesus tonight

Tonight at 7:42 PM, Michael lost a fierce and courageous battle with cancer. He was at home surrounded by his Family and Friends. I am amazed at how many lives Michael touched in his 43 years and one day on earth. I can't begin to imagine what he can accomplish in heaven while he is watching over all the people who loved him. Although he will be missed here on earth, if anyone deserved to leave this world for the heavenly one a little early it was him. He was my best friend for 17 years, the Father of 4 wonderful children. His fight and determination to stay with us was never even about him, it was always about those he would be leaving behind. My children and I will take things one day at a time right now and try to figure out how we were so blessed to have him the time we did. His wish was to be home with his kids for his birthday and he was surounded by all those who loved him on November 10, and Novemeber 11th, Veteran's Day he passed away, fitting for a Combat Army Veteran

So Sorry for your loss. Going through this battle myself, even if NED for now, I can understand, how he made it all about everyone else. You know how they say some kids are forced to grow up, well we cancer survivors are forced to look at those that we may leave behind and face death in the face. My sincerest respect and admiration for Michael, you and the kids!

God Bless! I know the heavens are rejoicing with his presence!

I am so very sorry for you and your family. You are so right that Michael will be able to do so much in heaven. You have your own intercessor now in heaven and your children will be able to talk with him and receive his and our heavenly Father's assistance. I think you will be amazed at the strength you will receive from your children--they have strengths that we don't understand. May God be with you and all who are mourning the loss of Michael.

I literally felt my heart breaking when I saw your post with it's title. Strange how the heart, a vital organ is also reflective of emotions, I felt my sink with your news. I know Michael is not gone, he will always be in your heart. I know you will see him again one day, until then I will be praying for your peace and strength. I am so sorry for your families loss.
God bless you!

We're very saddened by your loss of Michael. Please accept our sincerest condolences during this most difficult time for you and your family.

Having friends and family at the end are a tribute to what he meant to them - and that speaks volumes right there.

"Hooah", Michael:) Thank you for your service and all that you were.

I'm so sorry you lost your dear husband. My sister died from cancer at the same age and 43 is just way too young. I'm glad you had him for 17 years, and I'm sure that you and the kids have many wonderful memories of your time with him to share. I hope those memories give you a little strength and peace. Ann
