How would you describe them?

“My home, my heaven, my eternity. A perfect husband. The love we share will last forever. Mike has the biggest laugh and the greatest cuddles”

What did they love most?

“His cats, Gressenhall FC, Everton, nature, music and of course his beautiful wife, me!!”

What will you remember most about them?

“Everything. His smile, laugh, love, the way he loved me, the way he held me, the way he looked at me, his everything, his all. Michael is my eternity.”

Thank you for visiting my Gift of Hope tribute fund. I met Mike on 7th September 2001. His best friend, also my good friend, Joe introduced us. I was with Sarah and Miranda. Mike thought Sarah fancied him but really she was just eyeing him up for me!!! I can't even begin to describe the relationship Mike and I had and what we shared. To say we were best friends, in love, happy.... all of those words, none of them do him or us justice or pay enough tribute or can say anything about just how much we loved eachother. The hardest thing about him now being in heaven is that we are both in different forms now. One in body, one in spirit. Only can we be balanced again once we are reunited as the same form. Mike has this way of just making me feel so safe, so right, so happy. Nothing mattered. I could just simply be. He was, he is, incredible. I don't know what words to use; the laugh was just out of this world. He was so generous. For my 30th birthday, the last we shared together, he wanted to buy me 30 presents but lost count and I ended up with 33! It was a fantastic last year together. We had an extra cheeky holiday to the New Forest, a wonderful weekend away in London with Sam and Stuart, a fantastic 30th bash for me with special friends, a great night out with Joe for his birthday and then on July 31st 2013 Mike was called to heaven. It was sudden and quick. No warning. Steve, his brother, was with him. I am so sorry Steve had to do that, and I wish I could have done it for him, to save him the pain of seeing, knowing and telling me. But the thing is, Mike would have wanted that. I know he wouldn't have wanted me to see that, and he needed someone he loved so much with him. Steve, of course, would be that person. The next day, August 1st, was our 4th wedding anniversary and the day after that, August 5th we were to go to hospital to get some advice and support for me as I wanted to have a baby. We wanted to have a baby. Then the following week we had a beautiful holiday booked to Austria. But he was called to heaven at 34 years old. Called to tend heaven's garden. His friends and work colleagues gave me support like I had never known. There are no words to describe this year. Even a year on, how can I? What to say? I carry him everywhere. Always. Some people don't see that, some people can't. Mike, I love you. Eternity. xxxx
