Years ago I had a friend who suffered a paralytic stroke and later told me that as she lay in bed she could hear her doctors telling her husband there was no hope for her recovery and they may as well disconnect her life support. Fortunately, her spouse never gave up on her. Indeed, she began to show signs of improvement and eventually made a sufficient recovery to be able to return home and function fairly normally the rest of her life. She lived years longer. So I hope this will be of some comfort to Mike's family.
Those of you who already have his wife, June's email, should be sure to contact her with words of support and encouragement. I hesitate to post her private email online without her permission.
