An Open Letter

We Miss you, Mike. Posted by Hello

It's amazing...how a person that you've met once in your life, perhaps spent the cumulative of about12 hours in their company, can leave such an indelible mark on your soul.

What's the secret? Honesty? A zest for life and its surroundings? A vivacious wit and curiousity that's has no limits?

From the moment I met you, in that wonderful tapas bar in Atlanta, the way you rush over to welcome Kirsten and extended your hand to touch mine for the first time. From that moment, your very essence inspired me.

Looking at you was like looking in the mirror, and not seeing the man you are, but the man you wish to be.

Two years ago, I wrote about how one of my great thrills in life is introducing new friends to new worlds of possibility, whether it's through song, image, or just thought.

Every day you did that for me...when I visited your site and entered your world. Your inspiration, friendship, drive, and generosity are your legacy to myself. Your gift to me.

I wish we had more time together. I wish I could still see your face rushing over to me, welcoming me back.

What's your secret? Your gift? Your friendship.

I miss you, Mike. We all miss you. We all love you.
