Although we didn't see one another often in our adult lives, it was always nice to be met with that big smile when we did. We wish the best for your family, and particularly Matthew, in remembering their happy times with you. Rest in peace my friend.

Rest In Peace, Michael. You were such a great father, and Matthew adored you. Im heartbroken for all your family and friends. I am so sorry :(

Myron and I are so grateful to have known Michael for many years. Michael and my daughter went to school together since the 3rd grade. He was always so sweet, kind and respectful. As he got older we would see him from time to time and he never changed. He genuinely cared about people and was always concerned about others. We will definitely miss him! Our thoughts and prayers are going out to his family and friends. Rest In Peace Our Dear Sweet Friend
