Mike has posted his story in the Survivors Story Forum and a couple of guys replied there.
We want to keep this forum free of replies so that someone can just express their feelings through their own personal story without the pressure of any responses.
The other reason is to keep discussions on the discussion forums.
This is the note at the top of the Stories Forum.
Notice: If you wish to edit your story after you have posted it please contact one of the moderators. Replies to stories posted here are not permitted. If you want to reply to the author of a story please post your reply in another forum.
So I've just moved the two replies here, and I apologise for having to post them under my name but I had to cut and paste them.
I'm sure other people will want to join Sleepy, Sick Puppy and myself in expressing our support for Mike, and to thank him for trusting us with his moving story.
