Michael was an amazing man and will be missed so many. He loved with his whole heart and a smile from him could always cheer you up. We were so blessed to have him in our family and will miss him dearly. A family lost there son, brother, uncle and grandchild, nephew. Melissa lost the love of her life, her soul mate. I am so sorry everyone is experiencing a loss this great. He will never be forgotten.

I will miss your smiling face! I am so thankful or work friendship lasted years after working together. I am so thankful I got to see you at Timothy’s Pub. That is the last I got to see you in person. You definitely cheered my up and saved me from the creepy military guys. Until we meet again my friend.
