So sorry for your loss. I remember Mike as a funny guy and never really talked bad about anyone growing up. I admired his family and looked up to his father as my own. I always loved how close you all were. Rest in peace my friend. We will meet again my brother.

Michael and I grew up like brothers, but lost touch as adults. I am saddened by his loss, knowing that we will never reconnect. He will always be remembered as one of the best people I have ever known. My condolences to his family. He made the world a better place.

So sorry to his entire family for their loss.
Michael was a wonderful man. He was also someone anyone could go to to talk, for help and just to visit. He welcomed everyone with open arms or a hand shake. He was a wonderful friend and will be missed by many.
