    The hallways seemed very quiet the last few days. You will be missed dearly. You had a way with making everyone feel comfortable with you. Your jokes and humor will be missed. I hope you rest in peace dear friend. It’s hard to find someone as nice and caring as you. May your family know I will keep them in my prayers.

    Michael will truly be missed! He was a great guy and made a difference with individuals that had the privilege to know him. I will always remember Michael’s great personality. My fondest memories was how he was so supportive when someone was in need and not to mention how Sammy could get Michael to do what ever she wanted! This man certainly had a big heart for animals and they knew it! .
