A Promise to Michael

My girlfriend Michael is dying.  She is under the nurturing care of staff at Shalom Park in Aurora, Colorado.  Diagnosed with ovarian cancer four years ago, Michael has been at death's door more times than anyone I have ever known ... yet, she  has refused to enter each and every time.  She has been quite remarkable in that way - so remarkable, I even made her a  promise...

Yesterday, August 22, 2011, I knelt beside Michael's bed and told her that I would tell  the whole   world what a wonderful job she had done.  So now, I am keeping  that  promise.  I am putting it out into cyberspace that my girlfriend (and friend to so many others), Michael Sears, did indeed do a remarkable job – a remarkable job of letting people into her world as she was dying ... and an even more remarkable job of fighting this insidious disease.
