Mikey Cortez and the Cortez family

I am sure that many have already read about Mikey Cortez and his loving family. I thought it was important though to include a mention of him and his family on this blog. After Mikey Cortez was injured in car crash in 1982, his family promised to always care for him. The story of their love and care for their son for the next 31 years  is one of the most inspiring things you’ll ever read.

Here is a link to the family’s obituary for Mikey Cotez and another link to a column by Wesley Smith.!/Obituary
