I first met Mick at my local Breathe Easy, he was suffering with multiple problems of mobility and breathing difficulty's and even though he was wheelchair bound he exercised to the best of his abilities.
Mick used to really enjoy his time at Breathe Easy and his humor was alway's present. His favorite comment, was in the warm up when you turned your head to one side, 'you've not washed your neck again' as he could see the tide mark. You new it was coming but thats what made it funny.
He would sing away to the music if it was a tune he new and I used to have good chats with him about our local football team, Hereford utd. Poor Mick, he was sound of mind but his body was failing. His time at Breathe Easy was good for him as he used to say the home where he was cared for was full of people who's mind had gone and conversation was very limited.
Well Mick died just over a week ago now and was buried yesterday,he will be missed by all of us at Malvern Breathe Easy but not forgotten.
R I P Mick.
