Rest easy Mike. You had a quiet, poignant way about you. Always kind and eager to learn about others, always listening. Your smile was the definition of infectious. Your understated humor and warmth made mundane trips to Zaza's a joy. There aren't any others like you and for that you will be sorely missed.

It is still incomprehensible that Michael has left us. There are so many wonderful memories of him and his family. He was a talented, funny, lovely man, and his passing has left a huge hole for so many. My family has his family in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
