It is with extreme sadness that we, Brian and Gail (McGee) Braceland announce the passing of our son, Michael, born June 3rd, 1975. Michael leaves behind his much loved brother, Daniel and sister-in-law, Catherine and his beloved son, Riley. Michael was a gifted chef who loved to share his secrets with Riley. Michael loved the family cottage, a place where he found peace and joy, and it was here at his favourite place that he spent the last days of his life. Tragically, on December 21st, 2012, Michael died in a fire at his beloved cottage. We pray that he is at peace. He will always be loved. Keep Mike in your hearts. A memorial service will be held at a future date. For those wishing to share stories or leave condolences, we invite you to do so at email@example.com.
