A True Man For Others0October 22nd, 2012Liam
Today a dear friend was laid to rest, Officer Michael Schaefer you will be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing you.
Maureen and I were both lucky enough to meet Mike many years ago, in fact we have each known Mike longer than we have know each other. Mike’s life was tragically cut short last Thursday when he was hit and killed by a taxi. Mike was an amazingly generous man, and gave Maureen, Liam (Mighty Liam as he called him) and I so much support over the past few years. He was always generous with his time, smiles and laughter. Mike had a wonderful zest for life and truly understood that each day is a gift and should be lived to the fullest.
I would encourage everyone to be a little bit more like Mike. Surround yourself with people you love and have fun, make every day count and find a way to make an impact in the world.
For those that knew Mike, we know that the world lost one of the truly great people. For those that didn’t know Mike I included a video piece NBC news did on him last week.
I just wanted to ask all our friends to take a moment to say a prayer for Mike’s family.
