"Hi Mike"

The hardest part about these tradgedies is that it's so final. On the day of Mikes accident, Jeremy Wood a Helecopter pilot and also a very good friend of mine based in Livingstone, offered his services in the Search and Rescue which went out without delay. Tragically, a year and a month later Jeremy was killed in a helicopter accident near George in South Africa. 2 great aviators lost within a year was a massive loss. We will never forget Michael and Jeremy and we miss you guys.

I talk about him at least 3 times a week, it's getting easier with time... time just seems to keep on goin' on eh?

Every Body take a second and smile... just for a second... It feels good!

On my trip back to California to visit my family i went through some old picture boxes and i came across these two. I think it was 1994 but i can't say for sure; thought i would share a little of how we remembered him.

It has been over a year since the loss of my best friend, and this is the first time I have been able to talk about it.
Please understand that the relationship I had with Mike was one that very few people in the world ever get to expierence... and I may never experience that again. We were two very different people from two very different worlds, but we both needed one another very much. I would not be half the person I am today with out the influence of Mike, he allways went above and beyond... I could sit here all night and tell you stories about the CRAZY things Mike's done for me, like the time I was an the verge of a nervous break down, and he took me to New York City for week or so... he always new just what to do, and when to do it! But more importantly, he never did any thing half-assed, GO BIG OR GO HOME... Mike use to say.
I still visit our pond, it was our spot, close to home, but not too close. We must have spent over 500 hours there! It feels cold and dark now when I go, but it's the only place where if I'm quiet enough... I can still hear his soft voice whispering in the wind.
Well I'm enguaged now, to a man who reminds me very much of Mike, his name is Adam Collins. I promised Michael that he could be my maid of honor, but I'm going to let Natasha do it now if it's all right with you Mike. All my love and best wishes Sharon and Gerry, you are both very strong, and know that you're not alone!
