If you have noticed something missing at M* lately, it is because JA Benson’s husband Mike passed away this week. He was young, just 50, and he died of a heart attack. Joanna is now a widow.
Her husband Mike is being dressed today and there will be a small graveside service tomorrow. One of Joanna’s first thoughts was to let her fellow bloggers here know that she would not be able to participate on M* with her usual enthusiasm. She says: “I started lurking in 2004 and commenting in 2005. M* was where it started for me. I know we do not really know each other, but I have felt a sense of community. I need all the heaven sent prayers I can get.”
Please say a prayer for Joanna and her family to help her through this difficult time.
