    Linda & Mike, My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family during this difficult time. I want to thank you both for introducing me to this WONDERFUL Man, Mike Price!! The times I spent with him were the BEST times I've had in a very long time. Mike, would listen to me for hours telling him play by play all the stressful events of my day & somehow with his amazing warm heart he would find a way to talk with me in his gentle voice and make my day not sound so stressful as i tought..He always made me feel special. I will miss him so much as I know many others will too... I love you Mike! Give my Mom a big kiss for me ;) Love gem
