One thought on “About Mike”

  1. Hi Mike, it’s Natali from Canada. Emery, Griffin Morgan and I were talking about our fun times with you this morning. It’s been nice to have them home together for a little while. We talked about how you could cook anything, shuffle your feet and find dangerous things without worrying, and could hold your breath for a huge amount of time. Wish I could share an image of how big the boys have gotten. Morgan is doing construction and go to the gym every day and Griffin is in the army doing radio stuff and computer stuff and university. Hopefully we will come down and visit you sometime. Hope you are well . Peace and love Natali
