Michael was a beautiful soul. He grasped the hearts of many and left us with lots of amazing memories. I am blessed to have met him and experienced the joys he always shared. He will be greatly missed. He may have been quiet but he was always paying attention. He was really good at catching me by surprise. I'll miss you buddy.
