"Michelle, I.am.so sorry for your and your brother's loss. Your dad was my boss at DoD when we were at Downtown Detroit. I held him in high esteem. I believe his spirit just "communicated" and that is how I "knee to look up his name". The same happened with Neil (the Lawyer)"
"Michelle, I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you, Mike, Marilyn and your families. May God provide all of you added strength to get you through this difficult time. Find comfort in knowing your Dad is no longer suffering and is finally at peace. I am always here for you. With all my love, Kim xo"
