Mike and I rode the morning school bus together for years. I'd get on before him and take our usual seat. He'd get on at the next stop, always with some sort of breakfast in his hands. "G'morning, Mike." I'd take his bowl for him while he got sat down and situated. "G'morning, Frank," he'd grin as he'd take his bowl back. We didn't talk much and parted ways like strangers when we'd get to school.

His cheery demeanor in the morning was counter to my typical teenage gloom. He'd never know it but those mornings were a great stabilizer for me at the time. That routine of ours prepared me for the upcoming day, reminding me to; take everything as it comes, smile, and to see the good in people and all things.

I miss those simple mornings and I'll miss you, Mike. Rest in peace.

When my husband and I first starting attending MVC in 2007 we sat in the “teen” section unbeknownst to us!! Michael was sitting in front of us and turned around and introduced himself. Every time we would see him around church or occasionally driving on the same roads he always would give us a big smile and wave. Praying you all feel God’s love and comfort.

I have known Michael since we were kids. We have kept in touch over the years. He always had that happy-go-lucky attitude and he could put a smile on anyone’s face. He was always willing to jump in and help out, he was such a great guy, and he will be missed. To his family: I am so sorry for your loss. If you need anything, I will be happy to help. Just ask.

I affectionately called Michael Popeye both because of his bodybuilding and his pension of taking care of others. To know him was to be happy because you could not see him and not smile. His joy in life was infectious and his spirit radiated humor and love. Our sincere condolences to the entire family.
