We were neighbors of the Brink family after Michael grew up, so we didn't get to know him, but want to offer our prayers for his soul, his wife and son and all the family members. Y'all are part of some happy DeWine memories on Belcaro Drive.
love, Larry and Kathy DeWine

My children and I will never forget how kind and gracious Michael was to us in our time of need. My husband was out of town (golfing in Louisiana) and I took our two pets to be "fixed". Well, the cat Lilly did not need to be spayed, because she was actually a male. (I think the Powells got mixed up when the Matthews and Witmers got a kitten from the litter.) So "Leonard" was neutered and all went well. However our beautiful chocolate lab that we all loved so much, "Cappy", short for Cappuccino, did not fare as well. He was neutered and was very woozy from anesthesia. I placed him on his dog bed in the garage while I went to pick up my God-daughter. When I drove back into the driveway the drunk dog had wandered into the wrong bay and you can imagine the rest. The kids (all four of mine and the God-daughter) are screaming bloody murder. We ran up the street to the Vet, they were closed but we realized that it was already too late for Cappy. Allison said, "let's go to the Brink's". We drove in their driveway with a recently expired dog in our SUV. Michael was so kind and sweet. He graciously and so respectfully, said," I will take care of him". He picked up our beloved dog and placed him in his car and said, "You have nothing to worry about". What an incrediably kind gesture. Later as I sent a "thank you" note with a $100 in the envelope. Deb imediately sent Tucker back to the house with the money, refusing to accept what I know he must have paid for Cappy's funeral. I loved him for that kindness. He could have lectured me in front of five kids why it was so foolish of me to do what I had done....but he chose to give me GRACE! He was my HERO that moment and forever I will remember him that way!
Deb and Nicholas we love you and are so sorry that you lost such a wonderful man!

The 9 am mass at Christ the King has lost a wonderful member of its team and he will be sorely missed. Michael was always so calm, dignified and welcoming as an usher. We extend our deepest condolences to Deb and Nicholas and will keep you in our prayers.
