Michael was my childhood friend! We had many adventures growing up! Shared many bumps and bruises life sent our way but, no matter we stayed close friends through adulthood! Loved him as a brother and miss him tremendously! My heart is broken! God has one more voice in his choir!

Hello Brother

As we used to start when we answered the phone and I knew it was you I would say 10-10 you would say Trucker Friend. I Miss you although I know you are in the arms of the one that is the Lover of your Soul. I want to apologize of things I feel mixed about regarding your service. It was whirlwind and my mind was really not there. I wanted to say so much Michael. Instead I read a cab story you told me. I wanted everyone there to know you attended Portland State University studied Classical Music. Your favorite was Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. I wanted everyone to know that you explained how all of these awesome Artists wrote their music back then, which was C Minor, and how and why that had to be changed over the years. I wanted everyone to know that you went into a Professional Studio with Robert Barry who published so many famous people's music. He runs SoundTek Studios. We made several promises to each other if one of us died before the other what we would do and I have held my end of that deal. I FOUGHT for your reel to reel's and had them placed on a DVD professionally and I am in the process of having them copyrighted. I wanted everyone to know how you worked for the San Francisco Chronicle for the Hearst Co. Then went on to the Sn Jose Mercury and went to Battle with Bob, Edie, Scott and fought for your rights for 2 years.I still have all of the pins you handed out from Teamsters and wear your shirt all of the time. I never got the chance to share that Ricardo and I married on your Birthday because you introduced us and for that we are eternally grateful. I never got the chance to share how many timers you would call and say Sis you wanna cruise with me tonight and I would and how many Cab Stories I heard for myself and how many freebies you would give to the needy, elderly ---literally walk them to their door, all of the freebies you gave those to MATS to detox . I had the opportunity to lead many to Jesus through riding with you. I never had the chance to share how when the man of God I brought into Albuquerque 2 years ago and led to Jesus Christ and how all of your herniated discs healed. You will never know How much Peace I have that I know you are with our Lord Jesus Christ. I just celebrated our Wedding Anniversary and Ricardo bought me a locket and I put our picture that I posted on the web, and one of Ricardo and I wedding day.I never had the chance to share how many times we shared getting together and you and Johnnie playing the Guitar you had the most Beautiful voice Brother. When I heard you on this professional reel to reel I broke down and cried and cried so did Aunt Anita. She says hello. I just wished I would had been more composed at your service. I was not there mentally. I feel expressing all of this is cathartic for me and I feel you will read this. You and I were so very close but I was blind sighted and feel I could have done more. You are missed SO much by me. I think of you every single day.I am just Happy I can go back anytime I want and post again anytime. I Love You. Your Sis xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Michael, I know you soared to heaven when you left your physical body. All the memories I carry in my heart of you are all sweet, funny, and full of music. I hope all those who have gone before us are able to see and be with one another in spirit. Your passing brought sadness and heartache to many - but I know it brought 'PEACE' to your spirit. I love you Michael always and forever.
