On 15 January at 22:55 (GMT) my amazing and courageous husband died.I have lost my soulmate, my best companion and friend

My children have lost the best father.

Michael was a very good man, who lived life to the full and loved to make people smile and he would have wanted to be remembered not with sadness but as the happy man he was. Michael always managed to light up a room and ever the entertainer would always tell a story about life…. He was full of enthusiasm, a true character, one of a kind…

Michael loved running, Tangle Foot beer and AFC Bournemouth, as well as walking in the Dorset countryside….I’m not sure if in that order…

Right now I can’t imagine life without him, I’m missing him terribly…

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to the nurses, doctors and staff at the Forest Holme Hospice for the extraordinary care they gave Michael and our family during his stay there. They made us feel at home and looked after Michael during the most difficult time of his life in a way that was caring, kind and compassionate. Words are just not enough to demonstrate my gratitude.

I love you Michael
