Helicopter N147MD, Our Love and Prayers For The Families of Mike and Donna

We received public confirmation today, our friends Mike Gauchat and Donna Cullum passed away in a helicopter accident Friday May 22, 2009. We are deeply saddened by this loss.

We last saw Mike and Donna on a full moon night ride to Lake Pleasant on Friday May 8th.

Our newly-found friendship with Mike and Donna was brief, drawn together by a love of Alaska, flying, helicopters, Harley's and more. We will truly miss them.

Mike and Donna, in flight.



Something of Heaven

He reminded us
of a truth too oft’ forgotten
faith can afford, offers
a glimpse, a foreshadowing
a foretaste

Something of heaven
can be here with us
out of the dialogue
the hearing of the message
the voice of God
a relationship, a way of life
emboldening us, lifting us
within the realities of earth;
something of heaven here
