Stopping at Life is Good was a requirement every time we visited Nashville. Mike always remembered my sister and me and greeted us as old friends. He and I talked about the loss of our mothers and the void it left in our lives. I am a faculty member at a local university and he always asked about my classes and life at the university. He often told my sister and me that we qualified for the "family discount" on our purchases. He was a great guy to chat with and I will always think of him behind the counter, humming to the oldies at Life is Good.

May your memories bring you peace.

Each fall I stop in Nashville to spend time with my Daughter and it has always been a priority to stop at the Life is good store to see Mike or his son. I did not see him last fall but we did sure talk about him . It was a pleasure and blessing for me to have known him. John Jones, Omaha, NE
