Gary Michael Has Died

Gary Michael, the man I wrote about here, has died. Thank you all for your very kind prayers.

In this life Gary was blind. Now, with God, he sees. In this life Gary had the mind of a child. Now, with God, his mind knows no bounds.

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    I've been out of town and missed the previous post. Sorry to hear about Gary — our prayers are with all those who miss him, especially Karen.

    I am sorry to hear this John. I will pray for the Lord to comfort Karen and Gary's loved ones in their time of grieving. I agree with your simple yet beautiful expression of Gary's home-going. I believe he is now experiencing a joy like he has never known. A joy that we too will experience as believers.

    Dear John,

    I am sorry to hear that Gary has passed, for the only reason is those he left behind will go through the grieving process and it will be difficult from time to time.

    I pray that process is brought on by smiles of times that once were, bringing with them smiles and joy in remembering.

    Be Well, Let the feelings be as they may and God will comfort you.

    Much Love & Blessings to you and the family,

    Andrea Pompeo, NYC
