Michelle Maykin and Van Le

One of my co-workers, a young woman named Michelle Maykin, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), a cancer of the blood, on February 27, 2007.  She fought the disease with grace and dignity for over two years, but finally succumbed to the disease this weekend. She was 28 years old.  Sincere condolences go out to her family and her loving husband, Van Le.

She had a personality and a smile that would light up any room and she will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.

A funeral service is planned this Saturday in San Jose.

Life is fragile, tell your loved ones you love them at every opportunity.
