Its late and your sleeping

Dear Cindy,
Its late and your sleeping and Im thinking about you BIG TIME!!!! Im SOOOO lucky to have found you and was able to start a life with you 18 years ago. You have been my best friend that has always been there for me and our girls no matter what! Im as confussed and concerned as you are now but have peace that you will be ok! You are doing so well with all the test/treatments/surgerys/Dr visits(each one with new news and twist). I couldnt be prouder of you! I know as you are thinking aboout the past and future, you are scared and it must be over whelming! I want you to know that I love,respect, and cherrish you for who you are and who you have been and what its taking you daily to fight off this awfull cancer! emotionaly I try to stay strong,focused and confident.. Sometimes I have taken the trash just to be able to breakdown by myself because I dont want to upset you anymore than you are inside already. I know and the girls know how much you love them! We love you too! Getting my things ready for Charlotte has not been easy, it has just helped me stay busy. I feel so sad yet encouraged for June to get here! We will never have to be seperated again after this final chapter in our Military service!(unless we decide to keep on after feb 2011....) That will be your call at that time! sometimes I have a hard time getting to emotional with you> I want you to be able to feed off my strength and me yours! IM CONFIDENT IN YOUR FIGHT!!!!! you are a good woman and a great friend, and mother and I look forward to growing old with you!!!! As far as your friends, and our families, I want to thank you for being there for us and motivating us and being a support channel. Even though I will be in Charlotte, your always on my mind and never futher than a 4 hr drive! I miss you when your sleeping and Im awake.

Love, Mike

You are blessed Cindy. You are so loved.

This is a treasure.
Praying for you all,

(This morning I read Ex 15:26b and immediately thought of you - "I am the LORD who heals you.")

I am absolutely in tears. Mike, that was so beautiful, and I have do doubt that Cindy will be printing off copies of this to place in special places to remind her of your love and deep encouragement.

Prayers as you both continue on the journey. What a wonderful sentiment--to draw off one another's strength. If that isn't the picture of marriage at its finest! Equally yoked, pulling together, no matter what the road ahead looks like.

Mike, I did support groups for Breast Cancer for about 4 years. I heard so many sad stories of husbands who either left their wives or just didn't offer any support. God Bless you for being a loving, thoughtful, caring husband. You are blessed to have Cindy and she is equally blessed to have you as her husband. Thanks for being one of the "good guys." Your letter is a true example of what a husband should be. God bless you in your new position. Can't wait till Cindy can join you. Praying for Cindy. you and the girls daily. Gayla

I was fortunate to have Cindy, Mike & the girls as neighbors during one of their assignments. The caring, the strength and the support Mike expressed in his posting to Cindy today is the same that I experienced from Mike & Cindy during my son's deployment. They are special people. I treasure our talks Cindy!! I still miss you guys being down the street. You WILL make it through this, I just know it.

My Army Brats and Me said...

Love you all. I sure need this. Keep it coming strong

Surrounding you with love & prayers,

You both amaze me! I know it is not easy pouring your heart out to others but all I can say is WOW! I cherish you both and your girls. I love you!

So I'm crying- big suprise there. You 2 are awesome! You have managed to stay positive, raise your beautiful girls and inspire so many other people during this hard time. I love you guys and I am sad that you will be moving but I will see you when I go visit my parents! Mike and Cindy, you make not see it but you are a true blessing to many of your friends and family and I am so proud to know you.
