I heard about Michael and just wanted to let you know that Alisha and Brianna and I are sending our very best to him, you, and the rest of your family from our new home base in Minneapolis.  A point Michael might find funny – to remind the kids of who he is, I said, “you know, the ‘drop the baby guy”“ – when they were little he used to do this variation of "rockabye baby” with them there he would drop and then quickly catch them-  and even when they got older, this is how they referred to him. But it reminded me of the ways Michael supported me around the kids in addition to being such a great mentor at CCR. Have heard him on Democracy Now and have been inspired that he is still fighting the good fight. And we still need him so hope he beats this and has years left in the struggle.  Jennie
