The River Family,
Michael and I grew up together, we had all the same classes. He was closer to me than my own brother... We had a blast together even though I never approved of me riding along when you stole your dads keys and we went for joy rides before we got on the school bus!.!. Anyway you had a lot of courage and determination in life and I always looked up to you. Man Michael I was hoping for you to come to my wedding but instead please be my angel and watch over me from harms way;) Say hi to god in Heaven for me. And to the River family thanks for putting up with our shinanigans ;) He will always stay in my heart and mind forever- Love Ian Alexander Ward

Dear Chris, Patti & Olivia

I was so saddened to hear the news of Michael's untimely passing.

There are no words that can express the pain and sadness you must all be feeling, there are no words to bring you comfort.

I have very fond memories of your visits to England and Laura and Michael playing together, they were like a couple of bookends.

My thoughts are with you all,
