Michaels love for all things “Nightmare before Christmas”, Anime, and computer gaming is well known in his family!! Micheal looked forward to Mondays to see what treats or surprises would end up on his cabinet!! He loved a good argument especially if he was winning, he also loved having a good political debate with his Uncle (They we’re on the same side). Michael enjoyed playing all games and learning new ones to play. Michael always looked forward to going to the movies with his Uncle Harry. Michael held all chocolate chip cookies and brownies hostage! He was the best cookie tester when we had our Christmas cookie bake.
