My sweet Mikey...............We will always remember that special smile, that caring heart and the warm embraces shared. Its hard to believe that such a shining light has left the earth; but knowing you the way we do, your light will shine forever in heaven. You were like a little brother to me..............always there to help out whenever needed, always the first one to offer a shoulder to laugh or cry on. We had so many fun times together..........the day trips we took that started out as serious............but always ending in a fit of laughter. We will miss you on our THINK PINK bus trips...........especially meeting at Tim's before heading out............you with your ginormous mug of coffee. You were loved by so many..............and will be missed by so many more. May you rest peacefully and know that we will one day meet again. Good bye my sweet little bro!! I love you.............xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

He was a loving human being, and I was blessed to know him.
Mike, you will be truly missed by many.
Perhaps now, you can raise a glass with Dale and Larry!
Cheers buddy. Love you always,
