Our Remembrance
On October 17, 2018, my entire world came crashing down. My life as I knew it changed forever when my incredibly loving, kind, caring husband Michael took his own life. I know people use the phrase soulmate and best friend to portray their significant other a lot, but Michael truly was my soulmate and best friend. Michael and I would say to each other…. “you are not perfect, but you are perfect for me.” The sadness and loss I feel is indescribable, but I know with time the pain will change to loving memories of the best 12 years of my life.

Please help me keep his memory alive by advocating mental wellness and destroying the stigma that cripples many that experience this horrible disease. Remember everyone you meet might be carrying or struggling with something you have no clue about. The moment you take time to care and ask someone if they are okay could be the moment you save their life. Proverbs 17:17 says, “A true friend shows love at all times and is a brother who is born for times of distress.”

So, every time you smile, show kindness, support and encourage someone, you can honor your loved and keep their memory alive. Michael was struggling, and that struggle became overwhelming. Let’s prevent that from happening to someone else you know and love. Frankie 💙 (Michael's Wife)
