Michele, “young man in an old body”, he would often describe himself. Full of spirit and food for everyone. Always amazed me to hear first and then to see that he would cook up pasta every Sunday for family.
His story’s were long if there was time to stay a while, and yet he would still ask for story’s or what was going on in my life as well.
At times Mike would start talking to me and expect an answer without his hearing aids. Since my Italian was limited to say the least, I decided dramatic sign language was the next best to inquire if his ears were plugged in.
God Bless you Michele Cavezza
Our Heavenly Father has Blessed and will continue to, that I am sure.
