I remember meeting Cuda thru my Uncle Hawk & My Uncle Dion! Ever since then there was always unconditional love & support. No matter what if I needed some guidance he was there for me & but also would remind me of his oxtail & curry goat plate
Love you always & forever

I met cuda through my sons father and even though we didnt get to know each other a lot more than we did, I'm glad you were apart of my life. He was definitely one you could talk to and he was that ear that would listen. He was a big brother to me and an uncle to my son. When I hear the name babygirl it wont ever be the same love you cuda always

Cuda was a great man. If he had it, he'd give it with no questions asked. He was a man of courage. A man of wisdom. A man of honor. He was a friend of eighteen years and the only thing we ever disagreed on was our choices in Baseball teams. We shared views, opinions, and the same birthday. No matter what, he was an overall good guy and the world doesn't have too many of those these days.

I had some difficult teenage years that were filled with a lot of fear. The Pit was a place where I felt safe. Michael was a big part of that scene and he was on my side, it was an important felling knowing that. He was a good soul to all and a force to be thankful for. He was encouraging to me as I made sense of my life.

I recently reconnected with him through the Harvard Square Pit Group on Facebook. It had been a point time since I last heard from him. He was happy to hear from me and to see where my life had taken me.

I'm thankful I got to do that. I'm thankful that he was a part of our lives.

Shade and sweet water to you good sir.

Ive known Michael through my years of homelessness and following years of recovery. He was always very vocal when he was proud of me and even more vocal when he didn't like what i did. My son is alot like him with speaking his mind causing them to butt heads for yrs until one day my son said something and Michael turned around and yells "i love that little #*€£!_@ weirdo!! I'll kill ANYONE who tries to hurt him!!" They bonded ever since.. my kids an old soul and uncle cuda understood him in ways most people didn't. He's struggling with his first real death and cudas beleif in Buddhism and reincarnation is helping he is literally surrounding himself with every buddah he finds and wearing a yankees hat despite the dirty looks he gets because " i hope that old man knows I'm doing this for him!!"
