Thanks, Niall, for an awesome post about Michael Petersen

I had only met Michael once, I believe, but the loss of words for me during MMS 2012, when I heard about his passing, was instantaneous.  Michael was all set to speak at MMS 2012 but had to cancel due to not feeling well.  We were scrambling a bit trying to find a replacement speaker, but also how best to tell everyone at the conference about it.  Some of you caught it, but a post was put up on the MMS 2012 Facebook site.  During our morning Bible study at MMS 2012, we lifted up prayers for Michael’s family and friends.

But, it wasn’t until today, when I saw the post by Niall, that I was reminded again, and I knew Niall had probably summed it up best.  Michael was a helper, giving expertise and support unselfishly.

Folks…we never know what tomorrow holds.  We never have complete control over anything about our lives.  Everything can change in a brief moment.
