    Dear Ken, just a short note sending my sincere condolences for your loss of Michael. When tragedies as this evolve, I go back to that line of thinking that states “when one door is closed, another is opened” trying to view positives opposed to negatives. The photo of Michael holding a walleye says it all, as with most of our family, fishing and the outdoors in general is in our blood. Earlier I attended a funeral today in Keystone, South Dakota for good friend, the pastor was adamant in informing those in attendance that, death is mirrored to one’s graduation in life, the dearly departed has gradated from their life’s journey and now enter God’s kingdom where eternal life prevails. In closing, know that you and your family are in my prayers.
