  1. I’m so sorry to hear it. I only learned of him because of your blog, and all too briefly.

    1. I’m looking forward to his book. It’s coming out in September. He was just a really beautiful writer — which reflected, I think, his beautiful self.

  2. Like Sharon I was only just introduced to Michael. Warm, thoughts to his family.

  3. I’m still in shock. I emailed him once, we had a short convo on fb and I think I’ve been lurking (and occasionally commenting) on his blog for almost two years. His posts helped me realize the beauty in liturgy. In fact, he was one of the reasons I’m Episcopalian today.

    I didn’t agree with everything he said, like his politics (he was compassionately conservative, but had nothing to do with Repubs), but he reminded me so much of my father (they’re exactly the same age), and I hoped to drive to KY one day and visit him and his wife and talk. He helped me realize that in Christianity, men and women really can be equal.

    I’m waiting for it to sink in. I think I’m in denial. I’m probably going to sob once I get to bed tonight. The world is a little bit darker without him.

    1. He touched so many people he never even met. I hope he knew that. Hang in there, Neu.
