Thought for Michael Twigg (1951 – 2010)

    I was so very sorry to learn of Michael’s passing. I have been searching for him on line for several years, and finally came across this obituary.
    I knew Michael very well when he was living in Cheyenne. He was a volunteer for the Rape Crisis Center there, where I served as the Director. He was also the caregiver for my infant daughter, Megan, after she was born in 1985; Michael came to my home and provided care for her while I was at work. Michael also traveled with me and my family to California when we moved back here, and I had the pleasure of taking him on his first trip to Disneyland.
    I did notice that there is no mention of Michael’s son, Nathaniel; can anyone tell me what became of him? He should be around 30 years old now; he was my daughter’s very first playmate.
    Michael was a wonderful, caring and kind man, and I am so very sorry that he is no longer with us.
