    A few months after Mike left us, our son, at the age of 24, was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. Mike never responded to the letters I wrote to inform him of this. Benjamin needed all the help and attention I could give him. When his treatments were done, in 2009, I flew to Denver where Mike lived and tried to see him. However, when asked if he would like to speak to me the answer was “No.” He has a heart of stone.
