We share each and every mournful word spoken of Michael by friends, family and associates.
We pray that Terina, Lexi, Robert and extended family members
can find some comfort when someone smiles when they speak of a favorite time with Michael, when you feel the warmth of a hug or touch a friend gives you, just as Michael gave to each person he met. We hope that gaping whole left in each of your hearts will be patched with all the love Michael passed out, returns in ten fold.
I’ll see him again in each of you, when I see you smile.
We will feel his kind words when we meet and and share words.
Michael was so very humble
passing along sage words, he had a warmth that few can master.
...
Michael we hope you rest easy and know you left some huge legacy our dear friend.
Much love, Hank & Kathy
