A “Fathers Day Poem” To Michael Boeglin (VIDEO)

FERDINAND (NNDC/Mick Birge) – This Friday will be one year since Michael Boeglin was slain in Detroit.

This past Sunday would have been Michael’s first Fathers Day as daddy to new daughter Mackenzie.

Now a year ago Fathers Day, not long after Michael found out he was going to be a dad for the first time, and just days before he was killed, his wife Ashley gave himĀ a poem she wrote through the eyes of their then unborn child.

Its about a daughter-to-be being with her daddy on their first Fathers Day together which would have been this past Sunday; a Fathers Day that has now come and gone without him.

I found out about the poem last week and asked Ashley if she would share it. I think you’ll agree its words are as heartfelt and powerful today as they were a year ago…
