Beth McKay says:

We were so close all of our lives. I followed him everywhere, since I could walk. He was my best friend. He valued his family, and made the effort to keep the family close by visiting regularly. He fought a 3 year battle with cancer, often looking for the silver lining, or finding the humor in various aspects of it all. He faced it with an optimism that I couldn’t imagine was possible for anyone with cancer. I am honored that he let me be a part of his journey, the good times, the bad, in health and sickness. I will always cherish the memories. I told him that I expect him to be there ready to greet me when the time comes for me to pass. My life with him was always an adventure. I have many fun stories to tell about my brother. I will contine to share these stories so that his spirit lives on, if just in our memories. This last adventure he took me on was quite the adventure, and I am not convinced it’s over. I would have never missed the opportunity. Love Always, your sister, Beth

Hi. This is a little unusual as i never met Michael, it was from a photo of him on facebook and his sisters grief that got me noticeing and my heart went out to this family. There was something charismatic about his smile and i believe that he will smile this way in heaven. R.I.P.
