A bunch of us went to celebrate with our buddy, Mick, before he packs up for Ireland. Mick is from Ireland and has lived in the United States for about ten or fifteen years. Mick and his wife do not have a lot of family in North Carolina (or in the US, really). Mick and Shannon felt their two children might benefit from having more of an extended family around them while growing up.
I have appreciated Mick’s friendship over the years and hope that they have a successful transition to that little island on the other side of the Atlantic.
