Default honoring Mike Boehler

My THT friend Mike is a heck of a guy. He inherited a little girl and has done right by her.

Heroes come in all types and do all kinds of things.... From what I know of Mike he definitely qualifies...

Adoptive/Foster, whatever the name give to people who raise another are some incredible people for sure.

Don't know Mike other than his posts here. Sometimes you can just tell a good person by their posts. Mike is one of those good guys.

Kate is great. Very nice to honor Mike like that.

I grew up in Sylva, my folks are still there. Great area, how long you been in Cullowhee?

I concur!!!

Parents that adopt kids and parents (usually single teenage mom's) that know enough to give their kids up for adoption have a special place in my heart.

Thanks for starting this thread!

Best of luck!

I had seen those before but didn't realize the first one was about Mike's daughter. Very nice. I assume the 2nd was to you, very cool. I really like your daughters music. Possum on the grill.

Good on you Mike.

Thanks Marlin. For Christmas we have rented a huge cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The whole family will be there. I am looking forward to 4 days of nonstop music.

Oneil - That's your daughter uh? I like her music quite a bit. Does she write songs for people as a side job? She is good at it. Really good.

I've only had a few interactions with Mike both on and off of this board.

First class stand up guy. The world is a better place because of men like him.

Chrisrack, yes Katie is mine. She would like to be a songwriter but her songs do not fit the "Formula".

I would buy a CD. She sounds like a female version of MIke Cross!

We just received permanent guardianship of this one last week. She has been with us since Jan 2nd of this year.
