lynne mitchell donated £20 in memory of Michael

Very fond and happy memories of Mike from 1964 - 2019.......55 yrs.
Baby sitting in Weeley with my fiancee Andrew who met Mike travelling to London to work daily in early 60's
Being our Best Man at our wedding in 1967
Meeting my second husband Peter in Jaywick before they moved to France.
Then many times staying with Mike and Kath as they renovated 2 houses during their retirement.
Getting to know the family especially the grandchildren who were often staying when we came to visit.
Having the pleasure to celebrate their Golden WA celebrations in Colchester and meeting John, Mel and family and then again when they were staying at Ian and Michelle's house to look after the dog!
He will be sadly missed by family, friends and especially Kath his sole mate.
RIP Mike with our love and prayers Lynne and Peter Mitchell x
