    Lynn and family. My heart is breaking for you right now. Seeing him slowly change from YOUR Mike to now Mike had to have been hard. Just remember all the fun, happy and silly things you did together in high school and those “honeymoon” years of marriage. May our God comfort, restore and give you peace for the rest of these next coming days. Love you lot.
