Celebrating the life of Mike Smith on his Anniversary
His youngest daughter, Thérèse, is now a student here at Warwick and organised this Mass on the occasion of the anniversary of Mike’s premature death. Father Fernando was well briefed about Mike’s business and links with WMG and WMCCM and he also painted a different picture of Mike as an Alter Boy and chorister. Mark Swift also took time out as he juggles two jobs and my son Richard, who met Thérèse on NAGTY events, was able to attend. Thérèse was also supported by 4th year Chemist, Matthew Cooper.
I did not find out about Mikes death till some time later so his anniversary caught us all by surprise, even his daughter. This late notice meant several work friends of Mike sent messages of support and apologies including Iain Robertson of MAS, Tony Ashford in the ‘Quarter’, Dr. Jay Bal, WMG and Sharon Tuersley ex-WMCCM and now on the library staff.
