Update

Well, Time goes by. Last week was one of the hardest I've ever been through. I tried to be strong for my mom, my uncles/aunts and my grandparents. It was also the first funeral for a few of my cousins, so they were taking it really hard. It is really sad that I have buried 4 friends (from Baylor/Santa Fe) by the time I was 25. I know God only gives you what you can handle, but sometimes you just want to ask why me?

Please keep my Uncle Gerry, Aunt Patti, Julie and Doug (Michael's sister and her husband) and my grandparents in your prayers. They are a very close family and Michael will be missed for years to come. It was nice to be able to share funny stories about him. I am so thankful that our extended family is so close.

This weekend flew by. Eric had a region meeting in the morning (I mowed the yards while he was there!), and then"meet the mustangs" night Saturday night. I went up to the school with him for that, and we ended up staying until 10 talking to the head director. Sunday we went to Sunday School and Church, and went out to eat with our SS class. We had a lazy Sunday, but it was fun to sit around.

I knew Michael very well. This girlfriend, Lauren, is one of my best friends. The three of us spent many sleep less nights together studyingthe past couple of years here at A&M. He was such an amazing man, and always so encouraging to everyone. I will always remember his smile and the way he loved the Lord. He touched so many lives...he will be truly missed by everyone who knew him.

Kendra,

Thank you for your kind words. Michael was an inspiration to many who knew him. Tell Lauren I said hi and God bless, I emailed her a few weeks ago but haven't heard back.

Thank you
