Recently, I got to know Cheryl Coolbaugh, who is the wife of David Coolbaugh... Mike and Scott's first-cousin. Since Mike's untimely death, Cheryl has been acting as a family spokesperson, setting up an annual charity golf event in Mike's memory, and helping shield Mike's wife, Mandy, from the multitude of media inquiries.

I asked Cheryl for this interview, she consented, and later on, Mandy also agreed to speak with me. This interview has two parts... Cheryl first, and then Mandy.

Thank you, Cheryl and Mandy, this was an incredible experience.

BF: Hello Cheryl.

CC: Hi Todd, I'm glad we're getting a chance to do this. Where would you like to start?

BF: Let's start right at the heart... tell me about Mike and his family.

CC: Mike and Mandy... what can I say? I have never seen two people more in love than those two. They were absolutely soul mates, if two people were ever truly just meant for each other... those are the two.

BF: I can see this will get emotional in a hurry... that's quite an intro.

CC: Oh, absolutely. Mike loved his family more than anything. He handled everything, he loved being a husband, he loved being a father... he was the kind of guy, if you called him in the middle of the night to say you had a broken water pipe
