Karen, I was broken hearted when I read that you'd lost your beloved Michael.  Although it was all too brief, you two had something very special!  You two shared a tremendous love and many great times together.  I hope that will bring you much comfort and many smiles.  Love to you, my friend.

We will always treasure the time that we knew Michael. We interacted with him often through his ability to make our lawnmowers keep running. Michael was service oriented and fun. I will always remember this last election cycle and his energy running around getting signs for his yard and some of his neighbors. He was so full of energy.  Always.....Mr. Michael ....we cared deeply for you
