Today one of Mike’s friends and school mates – Shantelle Hampton, posted this on her Faebook timeline.
Mike would have turned 40 today.
Love the sentiment and the greater message and felt compelled to share it.
“This is the year that many friends and I are turning 40. There are feelings of disbelief and awe as we reach this milestone birthday.
Questions like “where did the time go?” and “how did we get here?” swirl through minds and catch us off guard without warning.
We are turning 40- But there’s someone who isn’t. There’s someone who isn’t counting grey hairs or lamenting about back pain. There’s someone who isn’t plagued by constant fatigue or contemplating life’s accomplishments.
Today Mike would have turned 40.
To those of you who had the pleasure of knowing such a remarkable human, and even those who didn’t, let’s raise a glass-
To all the experiences of aging-
Because we get to.”
