    Great report- reminds me of my first trips and how I came to love that place. It's difficult to explain to people who say - where are you going? Vegas again?

    What a great TR. I can tell how much you loved Mike and I knew what was coming at the end. But that didn't keep the tears from coming to my eyes. I know you will keep his spirit alive for your own kids and the nieces and nephews. All the best to your wife Lauren and you.

    RIP, Mike.

    This is definitely one of the better trip reports I have read. I appreciate you sharing the family trip to Vegas with the rest of us. I wish you and Lauren a lifetime of love and happiness.

    The last part about Mike's passing really highlighted why you remembered this trip in such great detail.

    Thank you.

    Wow, I'm pretty new to this board, but that was the best trip report I've read so far. By the way, I never cry, but I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes reading your story about Mike. Take care.

    Great trip report; thanks for sharing with such entertaining detail. Your nostalgia for Vegas is very evident in this report and a fitting tribute to Mike. I'm sure your trips back with your wife will continue to reveal all these fond memories and make Vegas that much more special for the both of you. God bless you and your family.
