I want to thank the Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce for the beautiful banquet setting and the Minden Lions Club for my selection as the recipient of the Man of the Year award for 2014. I am both honored and humbled to be associated with the past recipients, fine men whose names are engraved on the trophy cup. I also want to congratulate a most deserving Pam Bloxom as Woman of the Year for 2014.
However, in the emotion of the moment that night, I failed to mention the most important person to me on this Earth for the past 33 plus years. Without her, the building blocks of my life would just be scattered along the journey. She is ardent supporter, my life partner, my best friend, my wife, Judilyn. I am truly blessed.
PS: She's also good at keeping a secret (from me).
Thanks again, Mike Wise
