Dear Friend

From my heart to yours, you are a precious man, from the very first time, I read your work, it was not hard to understand. The trials you endured, the pain, and the tears, locked away, you found your Saviour so near. Let no man or woman, who dwells on this earth, spit on a heart so sweet, all I can say, is they have the nerve. Walk tall my friend, may the wind, always push you forward, and pray for the lost, and the foolish cowards. I don't know what was said, or who is to blame, forgive them dear friend, and ask for the same. We as a people, have a journey of our own, each, and everyone, should know right from wrong. Continue on your path, you have much to do, and remember the devil, will use a few. I call you friend, as many here do, and from my heart to yours, I wish only the best for you. Michael Jordan, you are a special kind of man. One that I am proud to call my friend....... One if ever needed would not turn his back... I have never met you, but I can say, actions speak very strong...for you are willing to reach out, and me, you have what it takes to be a lighthouse for others....

Christy you have to over look some people whose opinion doesn't mean squat anyway. Outstanding tribute to an outstanding man who has overcome many trials to get where he is now. I salute Michael Jordan and wish there were more like him, Your friend always,Ron

Outstanding tribute to a very special person Christy. Michael is a blessing for all of us here. With his poems he gives so much inspiration and beautiful ways to live the presence of the almighty. And his encouraging words are priceless possessions for me. I'll say I love all of you here. God bless both of you. Love, Chitra

What a lovely letter or rather poem of respect and admiration for Michael. Yes, he is a very good man and friend. This is lovely. I am saddened to find out he is leaving this site. May he continue to be inspiration for everyone as he is for us. Michael
