So sorry to hear about the loss of Mike. I have missed the days spent with him and your family since leaving Greystoke. It was a privledge to be in your home and spend time with him. He always tried to make me feel comfortable and was patient & understanding when I messed things up. I always left in a better mood than when I arrived. I hope you are finding some comfort at this time. May God bless you and bring you peace and healing.
