    Michael was a great friend. When you found yourself in his inner circle he cared for you deeply. He was willing to provide assistance whenever needed and asked nothing in return. I have great memories of my time hanging out with Michael at work and at his house on the lake. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Allison, Gracelyn and the rest of his family.
