I am Michael's aunt on his mother's side. Thank you all for sharing on here. It means so much to us. Joan, mom and I were talking about Ben the other day. Him and Michael were so close when they were young. I hope he is doing well.

Michael though I havnt seen you in years you always had a special place in my heart! I am glad we got to at least message back and forth and feel a loss that we didn't manage to get together.

Michael (Mikey), was my son Ben's best friend in elementary school. He spent many hours at our house with Ben. We loved him very much. He was such a sweet boy with a heart of an angel. We are so sorry for your loss.

Michael, You were my Second Cousine and I am sorry that I never got to meet you. I just found you on facebook this past year. I do know your Mom and Dad loved you very much because they had told me this many times. I am sorry your son will not get to see the great father that i have read about this past few days. Kristen I am so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you and Baby Weslee. I lost my husband 18 years ago and I know how hard it will be for you. Just hang on to the memories and they will get you through. Make sure little Weslee knows just how much his Daddy loved him. Please keep posting pictures of him on facebook so I too can see him grow. If you need to talk to me about ...anything please send me a message.Read more

Dear Michael
Remembering playing all those board games we would play over and over again. We had so much fun. You learning to get drivers licence and you driving me all over Washington telling me all your stories and memories and sometimes it was scary (Lol your driving). :)
I know you are at peace now, but lots of people will miss you.
God Bless you Mike I Love you...
