I just got word that Mike Bailey has passed away.  His wife contacted me and wanted you all to know that Mike died from a massive heart attack and this time did not survive.
I will keep you all posted on arrangements and she asked me to let you all know.

You meant the world to him.  God Bless My dear Friend as you journey on.

Please drop a note here as Dorrie will be watching for this diary.  I got the message yesterday but did not get to messages until just now.  Here is her note to me.

Hi Amanda, could I impose on you to do me a big favor?...Mike passed away Tues,,,he had another heart attack in the hospital and they got him back 4 times but his heart was just too weak to keep functioning. I would greatly appreciate it if you would get on the hadit board and KOS and just put a small piece to notify people he interacted with alot about his passing. Thank you so much.
I have requested info but since I got the notice late yesterday, the funeral may have passed.   Please send your sympathies here.   I will update as soon as I can.


The funeral will be Monday  7th at Ft. Jackson National Cemetary..Columbia, South Carolina.  The Funeral Home is Greenlawn Funeral Home at 845 Leesburg Rd..Columbia SC 29209..

Flowers will be accepted...  
I am talking to Dorrie now and she is overwhelmed with thanks...and will try and respond... She is grief stricken.  She may come here with me ....for awhile and I told her after the funeral we would love having her here.  I think so much of this strong lady.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
