Great picture of Michael. That's how I remember him. Vibrant, with a bright smile. His kind words and gentle nature will be missed. He loved his family... especially his best friend and wife Paula. Love and prayers for you all. My heart breaks for you. Hold onto your Lord and your precious memories.
