    Gary and Paula, I was so very, very sorry to hear of Michaels’ passing. It is heart-breaking that his journey has ended so early, and I know that he was trying very hard to create a happier life for himself. Michael was an artistic, gentle soul, and Bill and I always enjoyed his compay, and really loved his sense of humor. There are no words that can truly help, but perhaps knowing that when your hearts are aching, so are those of the people who love you.

    There are holes that our love cannot fill,
    Scars within we cannot heal.
    We can t hope to understand what or why
    Only cherish them dearly as we say goodbye
    The memories and love shared through the years
    Make our hearts happy as we fight back the tears.
    Know love surrounds you and your loss is shared
    By friends and family and people who care.

    Mike has been my friend for over 20 years. I’m so upset to find this out. we were very close but had drifted apart but when we got together Mike could always light a room. he had the best smile and personality. when we lost our close friend years back we vowed to be each other’s pallbearers I’m sorry I found out to late to honor you my friend. my deepest sympathy go out to all who knew and loved Mike. the world is not quite as bright without him. we all will miss him deeply.
