Henry Ward Beecher said:

"The great men of earth are shadow men, who, having lived and died, now live again and forever through their undying thoughts. Thus living, though their footfalls are heard no more, their voices are louder than the thunder, and unceasing as the flow of tides or air"

Michael Muir was my brother, my friend and my mentor.

He was a GIANT among men, not because of the position he held or the respect he commanded from his peers, but, because of his heart, his soul, his kindness and his ability to see the good in all people. He was all the things that a husband, a father, a brother, a son and a friend should be and he did it everyday with purpose and pride.

He was a giver and a believer, a dreamer and a motivator. He was a teacher and a coach and most importantly, he was a friend to all of us....

To me, he will always be the standard and he will always walk amongst the GIANTS. Rest in Peace my friend. I love you!
