I know this is late. I just saw his name in the U of I Alumni magazine. We were room mates for a while. I am sorry to hear that he has passed. We had quite a bit of fun after classes. I will remember him with a smile on his face.

Dear Kim, I met Micah at chemo awhile ago with my mom. Being almost the same age as me and with the same predicament, Micah gave me hope in the battle. I was stunned and deeply saddened to hear the news of his passing. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family.

To Micah's Family,
I was saddened to hear of Micah's passing. My son, Mikal, had told me that he has been sick. Micah lived with my son, Mikal, and I during part of his high school years. He was so kind and caring; always so polite. I enjoyed our visits about school, friends, family and his dad.
