Default Message from Mike Mcgrath

I just got off the phone with Mike Mcgrath, and he asked me to relay some bad news for him. Forum members that have been around for a while will remember his wife Sue. For the new members, Sue had a stroke a few years back.

He just got confirmation that she has cancer, and is terminal... probably 2-3 weeks at best. He is understandably upset about this, and will not be on the forum for a while. I will try and keep everyone updated as time goes on.

If we don't get to speak with Mike personally, please pass on to him our sincerest best wishes.

Brian, do please let Mike know that he and Sue are in our thoughts and if Mike just wants to chat, he knows how to contact me.

Just talked with him again, and he says thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers. There's been a steady stream of family and friends to see her, so her spirits are pretty good.
