Michael has been a part of our family since I can remember. I close my eyes and thoughts of losing him bring me to tears but also thankfully there are so many sunshiny memories of growing up, joy and genuine laughter! I will cling to those times and hold him in my heart forever.
Love you Michael.

Memories: always making those around him crumble with laughter. His sarcastic remarks were always on point! I admire that he was true to himself & lived his life to the fullest
