    Pauline and family, May it comfort you to know that you are in our hearts and our prayers. I met the "Black cowboy" and had no idea it was Michael. He wanted children to enjoy their experience with horses. They had rodeos and the works. I would read about him; yet, did not know that it was Michael. May you find comfort in your faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. I miss chatting with you on FaceBook. Love, Maggie Joy Jones Stanton (one of the Boudrey girls and your former neighbor)
