    Mike, we are wondering, did you came down last month to Los Angeles for our daughter's wedding to say good-bye to everybody who loved you so much?!! You were so happy and so cheerful. You touched everyone's heart. You left a memory in our hearts that will never be forgotten. wagih&Lucy

    I found this truly meaningful remembrance this morning. ``` The Little Ship I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea. The setting sun tinted his white sails with a golden light, and as he disappeared from sight a voice at my side whispered, "He is gone." But the sea was a narrow one. On the farther shore, a little band of friends had gathered to watch and wait in happy expectation. Suddenly they caught sight of the tiny sail and, at the very moment when my companion had whispered, "He is gone" a glad shout went up in joyous welcome, "Here he comes."
