I just learned that Mike Hendrix of Cold Fury’s wife, Christiana, was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Words fail to come to me.

I didn’t know Christiana, but I do know Mike, and I can imagine what kind of a woman would be the love of his life. I can’t, however, even begin to imagine what Mike must be going through now.

Mike is of the Old Blogger Guard, one of the ones who kicked it all off and one of the few who are still around, and he’s always been a great friend and an enormous inspiration to me. Nobody, and I do mean nobody writes with more passion and eloquence than he does, a passion that describes everything he does. Hard-working, fun-loving, compassionate are words that all describe him perfectly, and I’m sure that they’d describe Christiana too, because Mike would never settle for anything less.

Mike, I don’t know what to say, and I know that there’s nothing I can possibly say to lessen the horrible pain you’re in right now. If there’s anything I can do, you have but to ask, my friend.

You’ve always been there for me since the time when there was only a few handfuls of us playing around on the Intertubes, exploring its possibilities and being in everybody’s face, knowing little and caring even less about where it would all lead. We were having fun, and that’s all that mattered. So when the news reached me about Christiana’s death, it was like a death in the family.

My most sincere condolences and, again, if there’s anything, anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to ask.

G-d Bless, my friend.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    I ask that you comfort Mike in his time of grief
    Reassure Mike of your love for him,
    and for the love of his life, Christiana

    Father, give him strength to face the days ahead,
    the wisdom to know she is now by Your side,
    wrapped in Your glory,
    bathed in Your warmth,
    filled with Your love.

    I Can Only Imagine
    What it will be like
    When I walk
    By your side
    I can only imagine
    What my eyes will see
    When your face
    Is before me
    I can only imagine
    Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
    Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
    Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
    Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine
    When that day comes
    And I find myself
    Standing in the Son
    I can only imagine
    When all I will do is forever
    Forever worship You
    I can only imagine…
    In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    Linked to Cold Fury some time ago via The Rott, or Blackfive… I forget. In any case, I was hooked.

    “Passion and eloquence” indeed. Well said, Misha.

    My son and I will pray for the family, and wish them strength.

    Misha:
    You are a compassionate man, and this post makes that obvious.
    God bless your friend, and I send my condolences to him and his family for the passing of his dear wife.

    Life is short here on earth. We should all remember that and think about what we cherish whilst we are here.

    Please pass on my sincere condolences to Mike and his family.

    Having someone so close pass on before what seems to be their fair time never seems to make sense, and it doesn’t. But I believe that man has a soul and hers will watch over the family, including her four-legged friends.

    Oh man…

    I know what this is like…one second they’re right there next to you, the next they’re gone.

    I don’t know what else to wish for on Mike’s behalf, other than the strength to make it long enough to see the sun come up one more time.

    I don’t know the man, but my heart breaks for Mike and his family. It truly does.

    Rest in peace, dear woman- if you made a wildman like Mike happy, you were truly one of the best.

    I lost a good friend to a bike accident eight years ago. He was the kind of guy that brought sunshine and happiness wherever he went. The great irony was that he was selling the bike the following day and had decided to take it out for one last ride.

    I took two lessons from the loss:

    1. To remember that even the strongest of us has a tenuous grasp on life, subject entirely to the grace of God
    2. Because of (1) we should take time each day to appreciate and rejoice in the blessings we each have, especially our loved ones.

    I too offer my condolences and pray that when the sharp edge of his pain has dulled, Mike will be able to remember the good times and what a blessing each moment with Christiana was.

    Rest in Peace, Christiana. The day comes when we are all together in the Glory of The Lord. Until that day, Heaven is a better place today, and we are diminished.

    Mike, I realize this is small comfort for you, but she rests in a better place today. May the Lord help you through.

    Ah Damn,

    I remember when they got married & when she came onto the blog.

    Lost my sister about two years ago - like the man said, one second they’re right there next to you…

    One of my plans for a trip to my Old Home State to see the Grandkids was to look up Mike.

    Now I have to for a reason that tears my heart out. I can remember when they got married and part of what brought them together was their scooters.

    Please just don’t let be someone who says, “I didn’t see Her”. Cause that would mean an asshole who choose not see a bike.

    Been there, got hit and got lucky!

    There are some burdens others can’t help you shoulder, but the knowledge that they care enough to want to can lend strength to your arms.

    Mike and family have my heartfelt condolences.

    Losing someone close hurts terribly. I felt the last blow myself about 3 years ago when a good personal friend died at 29. I still feel the loss every day. Even though he wasn’t family, he was as close as one could be. And losing the love of one’s life is even more terrible to me. I can’t imagine what I would do if I lost my wife.
