Just a quick note, two very different occasions happened on June 5th, 2009 (today) and June 5th, 2008.
Jeremy and Zach Roloff officially graduated today. The families have been having parties for the last week, the school had the senior dinner earlier this week, Faith Bible Christian school has a "senior chapel" for graduates, but Friday June 5th, 2009 was their official graduation.
On a sad note and a strange occurrence that it would fall on the same date, exactly one year ago was the sudden and tragic passing of the Roloff's (and all that knew him) dear friend, Mike Detjen. If you haven't read our interview with Daniel Meichtry, it is linked to the right-hand side of this page; Daniel discusses what Mike represented to him and how he coped with Mike's death one year ago today.
So congratulations to Jeremy, Zach, Daniel and the rest of the graduates and condolences to them and the family of Mike Detjen as the one year anniversary of losing someone close to you is never easy.
ETA: I believe some members of Mike Detjen's family occasionally stop in here to check our article and new comments in our "Share Your Thoughts and Memories of Mike Detjen" item located here.
It's never too late to let Mike Detjen's family know that you're thinking of them or to share your kind thoughts about Mike with the people closest to him. Feel free to leave a comment here:
Or follow the link provided to the Wordpress account that Mike's son, Tim Detjen set up. Either way, I think the appropriate people will read your kind thoughts, prayers and memories of Mike Detjen.
