Michael brought so much joy to the lives of everyone he met. I will always remember playing football in the hallways of his home with him, he could put that ball exactly where he wanted it every time! He brought out the kid in me... He reminded me that it's always okay to sing, like no one was watching, even if they all, obviously were and especially when there is no music playing. . I will carry him in my heart as long as I live and continue to share the many lessons he taught me with others whenever possible. His influence will continue to change the world well beyond his years, that is a promise.
