I knew Michael as a gentleman and a gentle soul. He often spoke fondly of his family and their successs. Mike's quiet demeanor was only a moment away from uttering a kind word or a thoughtful concern. His caring for family and friends was evident to others around him. I will miss him as surely you will as well. My condolences to his family. Know he touched many people's lives.

Michael was the best patient! Always on time and super happy with a coffee in hand. He was great-ful to be at the dentist and working on his contagious smile. We will miss Michael at our practice and we are so happy we got to aid Michael during his dental treatments.

Cousin Michael, I have spent this day thinking back over the years and recalling so many nice memories and conversations. It occurs to me that I do not have a single unpleasant memory of you, and that itself seems a lovely and fitting tribute. I will remember you as kind, gentle, caring and warm. May you be enjoying a wonderous reunion with those who've gone before you, and may you enjoy eternal comfort in the arms of Jesus. I shall always remember you fondly. Your cousin, Kathryn
