Michael and I became friends in elementary school, and right then I realized how great and fun of a person he was. All through middle school, high school, and college we stayed friends, sharing many unforgettable memories together. I won't forget the days when we would hang out at the outdoor classroom and go on the roof at Chesterfield with our group of friends. I also will never forget the parties we would both be at, whether it was in high school or college. Michael and I had our traditional picture of when he would pick me up like a little baby; we looked like weirdos, but it didn't bother us. This past semester of college I had been very busy with school and work, and rarely saw Michael. I wish I could go back in time and hang out with such a great friend more often. Michael will always be in my prayers and not one day will pass by when I am not thinking of him. I lost a close friend of mine, Alex, last February, and I hope that him and Michael can become friends up there. We will always love you Michael. Please watch over your friends and family. You will be missed.
