Memories & Candles
We all try to find the right words to express how we feel and the right words to console family and friends. Michael was indeed one of a kind and I feel the would be the first to get up and dance and celebrate every day as if it were our last. Laughter, smiles and lots of hugs are what I remember of Michael. He was gentle of spririt, embraced the good in the world and made you feel like

Mike, Marcia and Family,
I was stunned to see that Michael passed away. David (aka "Mike") saw Kristin's Facebook post, and called me immediately. I can't believe that I hosted your babyshower 44+ years ago-time has passed so quickly. I know that your family has created wonderful memories over the years-may they give all of you some comfort now. Know that I'll be keeping all of you in my prayers, as will countless others-how wonderful to know what rich friendships Michael

I was deeply saddened to hear of Michael's passing this week. We were on the Nautilus staff together at Jefferson HS, and he always made me laugh. He had an amazing charisma and love of people & life. You couldn't help but love Michael, and everybody did. One time I had brought in a dessert to share with the yearbook staff and he insisted I bring him the receipe. So I did, not only was he gracious & excited that

Michael came into my life ten years ago first as a client at the salon I worked at and shortly became a dear friend. We enjoyed so much of the same things. One of those was going to the movie theater for the latest good movie. However, as years passed and lives got busier we slacked on our dates. I wished now that we had kept a standing movie date. He will always be in my thoughts when I go
