Hearing of your passing was a shock as you were always so spirited. That and it is a reminder of my own mortality and how life can change so suddenly. It's a reminder, too, that we never know how long we have in this life and that we should treasure each moment and live it fully. It sounds like you did that, Mike. I hope that your family will find comfort in that. Blessings and hugs for your family, as they know you will continue to watch over them from your new spot in heaven.
