In 1968, a lonely 14 year old girl at boarding school became pen pals with a 21 year old Canadian serving in VietNam. Letters, photos and parcels followed for the next 4 years. We lost touch when Mike came home, though I did look for him in various Canadian cities. An article in the paper about the "The North Wall", the POW/MIA memorial, reunited us. Meeting in person was incredible. Meeting Julie, the love of his life, was incredible. We got together, not as often as hoped, but we stayed in touch all these years, sharing our lives. Mike was incredibly loyal, honourable, a warrior dedicated to the repatriation of 7 fellow Canadians. He was also gentle and had a wicked sense of humour. He made me want to be a better person. My son was in awe of him. I feel so blessed to have been in his circle. Though we didn't see each other often, I always knew he was there... My heartfelt condolences to Julie and the extended Gillhoolley family. May your warm memories help ease the pain of your loss. Rest in Peace, Mike, a peace you have more than earned. I will miss you.
