Unification News for May 1998

Mike the Flower man

This appeared in the May issue of the Montana Tavern Times. Can you guess who it might be?

"If he wasn’t known as ‘Mike the Flower Man,’ he might instead be referred to as ‘Mike the Mystery Man,’ for his last name seems to be unknown.

"However, in a fast-paced world, Mike takes time to bring a little bit of happiness to all those he touches.

"A loving father and attentive husband, Mike and his wife have five children ranging in age from two to eight years old. Yet despite his family obligations, Mike still finds time to aid troubled and needy people on the Southside of Billings.

And, when he walks through our doors with his bucket of flowers, he brings a bit of cheer into everyone’s lives. He always flashes a bright smile and sports an ebullient manner, even when the fellows try to hammer down his prices.

When he leaves, the women are all smiles as they each have a flower to remind them of this special person.

Mike’s workdays are not subject to any union guidelines as he is glimpsed going about his duties at all hours, seven days a week.

The Flower Man’s efforts were especially appreciated at the recent Carbon/Stillwater Tavern Association Dinner. In addition to brightening up the occasion by his sheer force of personality, Mike provided all the corsages and centerpieces for the event and then treated all the assembled guests to a glass of wine.

Mike brings a sparkle to many eyes and contentment to the heart. All the people he touches are gratified to know the world is still inhabited by special people like Mike.

"Keep up the good work!"

Did you guess? It’s Michael Yakawich, Montana State Family Church leader!
