Prayers for a dear friend of ours ...

<3 For Michael <3

Many of you will know Michael as one of the gentlest and kindest members of this community. It is with deep sadness that I must tell you that he has recently been diagnosed with multiple brain tumours that are inoperable, and that he is currently undergoing treatment with a very uncertain outcome.

I spoke with him two days ago and I was so incredibly touched by his courage and positivity in the face of such a challenge. He is doing all he can to live each moment as it comes, spending hours in deep meditation and surrounding himself with positive energy. He is staring into the darkness and seeing only light, in a way that I can only describe as truly inspirational. He has made peace with everything that is happening in a way that simply astounds me and brings tears to my eyes.

He has asked that his two favourite players, Lauri and Zoltan will play for him in his home, and I have just heard back from Lauri that he would love to do this. Thank you Lauri.

I ask you to join me in sending loving thoughts to him in these testing times, that he may feel our support, and that it can help him maintain such a positive outlook and help him in any way possible.

Good luck Michael, our thoughts and prayers are with you, we love you

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3


I am sure some of you will wish to send private messages, but please keep in mind that Michael is having difficulties using the computer at the moment and may not be able to respond. Also please respect that he has chosen the path he wishes to follow and is doing it admirably.

My immediate response to this is to feel crushed; but for Michael's sake, i can't allow that feeling to remain longer than the first few seconds, in which that happened. Bless his heart; he managed to post in the Welcome forum, and I repllied there, though he hadn't shared this news.

Michael is truly a great man, and I am sure he will find his way, in whatever way becomes possible for him. I very much feel for his wife and his two boys. So glad I have my pan back, so I can play for him here at my home, and that, I will do.

Phoenix - thanks so much for helping us stay in some kind of touch with Michael. And so glad Lauri could play for him. Lauri's soul/spirit will surely carry great blessings for Michael. (Wiping away tears.)

Michael,

I am deeply saddened to learn of your struggle. Believe it or not, I wondered why you hadn't posted for such a long time.

May you embrace peace and cherish each moment. May you be unafraid and free from suffering. May you feel the love you have been giving return to you ten-fold.

May those closest to you be granted strength and the courage to stay connected to you.
