I think it is a rare and wonderful thing when you meet people who you normally wouldn't and they become an intricate part of your life. When I went to work in the Archaeological Collections department at ASM, I met Mike, my boss.
Mike lived every moment of my crazy life of 2011 right along side me. He was supportive and understanding and was NEVER too busy to listen to my fears or my complaining. He brought me cookies, paid for my parking on occasion, and brought me books he thought I would like. He is the most genuine and kindest person I know. We still talk and email regularly and I am so blessed to call him my best friend. :)
