One of the first things I saw in my twitter feed this morning was the sad news from Bec that her beloved husband Mikey had finally succumbed to cancer.

It was peaceful, and Mikey was surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones when he passed but even so: this sucks.

This, and cancer, sucks like a black hole.

I cannot claim to have known Mikey as well as many, and I cannot hope to match the beautiful words of Stephen, Leece, Transcendancing, and Gina, but my thoughts are with Bec and her family now.

Fare thee well Michael, and a wind to your sails, you will be missed.

EDIT: I was’t able to get to Perth for the memorial service but Leece and Stephbg were there.
