From the short time that I have known you, You have taught me a lot about your life. I cherished every single moments of when you talked about your life and the lessons that you have learned along the way. How much you would brag about your kids, grandkids,made you so proud. The love that you talked about, because you had such a unique bond each and every single one, although differently but in thier own unique,loving and special way, was profound to me and always left me with a smile on my face. Love never dies,because your Michael has taken it home with him, in his soul. Thank you Michael, because I get to call you Friend.

Michael, you will always be dear to my heart and I look forward to seeing you in the next life. You were always so full of piss and vinegar!!! We shared many conversations about your beautiful family and I know they were everything to you. You were a wonderful man I have been blessed to know you.

I have so many words to describe this man and yet I’m at a loss for words. He was Papa, Old Man and my go to maintenance man!! Mike was always good for a laugh or advice and to talked to. His family was his world and he showed it everyday. I’m so proud to have known him and am sad my annual trip up North came to late. May you rest in the sweetest of peace Old Man.
