    If you listen to my show you know my wonderful co-host Michael in Minnesota.

    Last week his house burned down. He lost everything. 3 of his 4 beloved animals also perished.

    If you could please send him positive thoughts and prayers.

    His heart is shattered at the loss of his companions.

    This is just terrible news! I am glad Michael and the others are okay but his pet family members are a devastating loss. Precious and ireplacable. Thinking of you and hoping you find the courage to get through~ Frigga

    My thoughts go out to Michael and I hope he is reading here to know that many of us have him in our thoughts.

    Michael - You were missed on the blog radio show and in the chat it was inquired as to where you were during the program as we expected you every week. My heart has been hurting for you Michael since some of us learned of this two days ago after inquiring directly to you. And the loss of your 3 "boys" after losing your companion two years ago...and other recent losses - just cannot fathom your pain.

    You have helped so many in the past, and I hope that you have a close community (in addition to the Websleuths community) to be with you during this difficult time.

    ETA:Tricia or mods - For those that don't have his personal email, can you please post his "websleuths name" here so that those who wish to could post a message to him. Thank you in advance.

    Sadly , I can honestly say that I do feel his pain.
    My home for 20 years burned this past Friday .It too is
    A total loss. I lost my sons crib , cradle , high chair , rocking
    Horse , his baby book and so much more of sentimental
    Value.Fortunately for us the dogs were saved and are fine ...
    I will pray for Michael and the other family. I dont think i have
    Stopped crying much since Friday myself .
    God bless Michael !

    Thanks Kimster ... I feel for Michael ... I raised
    My son in that house and my mother
    Passed away in that house ... Its so hard to
    Sift thru rubble looking for precious
    Memories .I was blessed and my babies
    Were all saved but its very heartbreaking.
    I consider Michael a dear friend and know
    That like me he is likely going to sleep
    Crying and waking up crying ... I will pray
    For him . Friends and family are collecting
    Pictures of my son so that I can recreate
    A baby book .... Many had to do the same
    After Katrina.

    Michael,
    I so enjoy when you are on Tricia's show. You sound like an "old soul" and a good person. I am sorry for the loss of your beloved pets. I am a "mom" to 3 small dogs and my heart breaks thinking about your loss. I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

    Thank you everyone. I'm sure Michael greatly appreciates the kindness you are showing him.

    All day I've been thinking how drastically our lives can change from one day to the next.

    This is just so tragic.
