Michael loved being with family and friends. He was always playing with his cousins and listening to there storys and helping out with whatever they needed. He doted over his brother Tyler. Sure he teased him and joked with him but it was out of love . He loved going and watching Ty Joe at his special Olympics and rooting him on. Michael with his big heart 💓 would do anything for anyone if he could . Love you Aunt Glenda and you will be missed deeply.
