I’ll always have a wonderful memory of you, Mike, trying to teach me how to ball room dance, at one of Woodgroup’s Christmas dinner/dances. Oh my goodness, we laughed so hard. You told me how graceful I was, as I very sloppily danced in your arms. Lol
You were always such a kind person to me. Rest easy sweet Mike.

I will always remember our first Christmas together, You told me it was always good luck to find a birds nest in your tree, so you had me look around the tree until i found it , And inside the nest in a little green box was a wedding band, you made me the happiest man that day, I will always love you , I know your rejoicing with the Angles . P.S., you finally get to meet your mother-in-law, I hope you love her as much as i do !
