I am so sorry to hear of Michaels passing. He had a journey ahead of him for sure but knowing him from years ago I always knew he would turn his life around. I thought of him often and remembered the times we spent together. Rest in Peace my friend. Always and forever.

Mike was a good guy as I knew him since elementary school. A very positive person with a good sense of humor. Although I have not seen him in a while he will always be remembered for all the good times we had at Franklin Elementary School, otter brook, Chapman road, KJH and KHS and being an all around good guy. RIP my friend as our hearts go out to your friends and family.

Sorry to read about Michael's passing. I always enjoyed talking with him about his family and he was always letting me know how his Mom and Dad were doing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My heart hurts! Since I heard you are gone I keep saying, Mikey B is gone all day long, like a question? You were such a social butterfly. Known you since Jr High. North end guy! You were one of only a few that reached out to me when I needed a hand to help me back up from darkness and you always called for yrs to see how I was doing. I keep feeling sad but then think, maybe just maybe he is looking down and smiling as you always did and wishing you could let us all know that your so good now and infact your GREAT! God I hope so! And esp with you lil brother and trying to kiss the pretty girls. I never let you kiss me all those yrs ago, not because I didnt want to but because I never had before and didnt know how to, and truth was I was crazy about you back then and your energy was amazing. So funny all those yrs later you told me that you couldnt believe I had 2 kids when I wouldnt even let you kiss me- it wasnt you-it was me- I was just a baby! But its a memory I will cherish! But more so that you were so caring and sweet to make me feel worthy to keep on living in this very hard stressful world and now lost another very special person in my life. Dont make em like you MIkey! We knew how to have fun in our youth!
