My friend Michael, the Internet Monk has left this mortal coil. Words fail me.
I will write more of Michael's profound impact on me in the coming days. For now, my thoughts and prayers are with Denise and their children.
A LITTLE LATER: Let me add that today is a day to read the various responses and celebrations of Michael's life – and to weep from time to time. I will miss Michael more than I could imagine.
