Michael also loved to read and could tackle a philosophy book in one sitting if he had the time. Our family wants to remember Michael for his wit, his humor, his affection, his childhood love of baseball, his ability to make friends easily, and his devotion to his friendships. Sadly, we will also remember his struggles in life, and our hopes that someday, they would be behind us. Michael was working towards a new life and choosing a different path.
