Today the world lost a hero. Mike Renaud was a coach, mentor, husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, son and friend to so many. He has been an amazing spirit and warrior. His hero Bo Schembechler passed away 10 years ago today. I don't think he would want it any other way but to enter the gates of heaven on the same day as his hero. He fought a courageous battle and his life and testimony have been an inspiration to all who have known him. Life will never be the same for all those he touched in his life and will continue to touch.
It is not fair that Coach Mike will no longer be here with us but the extra 13 years we got with him after his accident were truly a blessing. He could bring a smile to everyone in a room and we'll all miss his sarcasm and sense of humor.
The love and prayers and support have been overwhelming, encouraging, and a blessing. Asking for your continued help in supporting Mike's wife Kirsten and daughters Cassie and Monique to raise funds for the funeral expenses and help the family in this trying time.
