I thought it was about time to post the update, I just haven't been able to bring myself to this page at all. Michael passed peacefully January 20,2014 @4:45 am. Earlier that night he told me had had to get out of here. I told him it was ok to go.
We were cuddled together hand in hand, my head on his chest. I played some of his favorite music for him and told him how much I loved him. I told him I needed to close my eyes for a minute and his spirit woke me as he was taking his last breath.
The girls and I appreciate all the support you all have given us, the dinners, the visits, the donations. Money is very tight, trying to support a family without my man is difficult to say the least, but we will get back on our feet, Michael wouldn't have it any other way:)
Love to you all, hold your family near and dear. Cherish every second together, every thing can change in the blink of an eye!

Just letting you all know that Michael is comfortable, he is sleeping for the most part. I appreciate all of your support and hope we can raise a little more funds, so we don't have to worry about how bills are going to get paid right now.
I will keep you all posted ...thank you again and sending you all love❤️

Working on thanking each and every one of you individually, I am also working on getting the funds transferred over so I can send it off to the bill collectors. I am so grateful for every donation that has come in, in tears right now. I will be up to date on the house, but can not let it get behind. Having this link shared will help tremendously and your continued support and prayers will keep those payments up to date while I'm home taking care of Michael. I can't leave him here to be alone.
I can not express my gratitude enough. Be on the lookout for an email from us...love to you all, keep on sharing, we're not out of the woods financially, but much closer thanks to you all!!

Michael is a 43 year old father of 2 beautiful little girls, married for 17 years. He has been fighting stage IV colorectal cancer for 21 months. According to his oncologist he won't be suffering much longer. After having many friends and family ask what they can do to help, besides lots of prayers for Michael's comfort and peace, what we as a family really need is financial support. I am not able to work, I have to be home to care for Michael. There are many bills piling up that I'm not able to pay. My car is on it's last leg and I really need to not fall behind on household bills. We also have final arrangements to make, so when the time comes I can be there to support our girls, not worry about how to pay for it. I'm not good at asking for help, and I really don't like fundraising, but many friends have told me to just ask, our loved ones and their loved ones want to help. We appreciate any and all donations that come in. Please know that you are making a difference in more lives than you know.

I have many fond memories of visiting the Coles, with their daughter Patty, to Northeast Pond...and always feeling welcome at the Homestead by Lydia, Margie, Ernie, Chuck and the host with the most Donnie...I remember the first time I met Michael he was probably 12 and Donnie was making him dinner in Lydia's kitchen table...then flash forward a few years he was a young man working construction recovering from an operation and spending the summer in Maine...than I remember him taking us to see the house he was building he was so proud...and lastly the house on the homestead...So while you probably don't know me I have fond memories of my time with your extended family and always being welcome and feel deeply for your loss.
