"So sorry to hear of Mikes\'s passing. The last few years we always sat near them in church, usually our daughter and granddaughter with us. Each Sunday before church started, Mike and Emily would wave at each other(tho they had never met). Then during the sign of peace he would always come to where she was and shake her hand...friends who had never spoken to each other."
