Michael

Done his time and paid his dues Had more than his share of blues Nothing negative to be found With courage turned it all around God was waiting patiently For Michael’s faith to set him free A poet, a friend, a sense of humanity An inspiration for you and me Stories of how he turned the tide With a good woman by his side A great legacy he will leave For inspiring others to believe I guess you could call me a fan For knowing him, I’m a better man When problems come and struggles start Michael’s poetry can touch your heart May this story never end Here’s to you my poetic friend. Tribute to Michael Jordan

Vince my friend what can I say - Sometimes in life things just seem to blindside you cause you never seen it coming - This poem was one of those times - My time is suddenly so sparse - Seems the Lord has me going many different ways & my wife and I just bought our home so I been trying to fix it up and even though its going slow due to my health it is starting to become a very nice home - Vince thanks for the poem - It came at a wonderful time - YF4L - God Bless you Vince, mj

Well no one deserves a tribute more than Michael, and you did a beautiful job. There are never enough good things to say about that man. He deserves all the praise in the world for being the most inspiring, thoughtful, admirable, compassionate, wonderful (I could go on) man I know. Good luck in the contest Vince and love to you both. Love, Shar
