    My heart is just heavy with the sadness that I know you are all feeling. It is not fair for you to have to suffer this loss. You are an incredibly loving and inspirational family who have helped so many people over the years. The ability you have had to offer support and love to others in need has been like a rock of Gibraltar to so many. Without doubt this same generosity, warmth and love will come back to you now through your countless loving friends and family. Your feelings must be so challenged right now, please don’t let that interfere with your natural ability to embrace life and love with such clarity. Mike was so special.

  45. Marguerite Johnson :

    Steff, Jan, Joe & Dani- We are broken hearted to hear of Mike’s tragic passing. He was incredibly special, incredibly smart, funny and generous of heart. He was always kind and welcoming to Shay and I and we are grateful for that. We cherish the memories we have of him- of spending time together in Mexico and relaxing times at the lake. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I wish there were some words that could offer even a small measure of comfort but I fear there are none. So please know that we send our love and prayers to all of you. I am sorry we could not be there in person to pay our respects. Despite the unimaginable pain I know you are enduring, we can be confident that he is safe with Grandpa Jim in heaven where there is nothing but love- free from pain, suffering, anguish, judgement and heartache. We can know he is soaring with the angels- even though he joined them far too early. Please also give our love to Tina and Dean. We will be be in touch with you soon and are here if there is ANYTHING that you need. Hugs and love to you all. Marguerite and Shay.

As father of one of Michael’s friends, I can hardly imagine your pain on loss of such a fine young son, so full of promise, vibrancy, generosity, fun and kindness. That Michael has enriched my own son’s life is evident. Your grief is shared at this senseless loss,, which loss all who knew him well now suffer. Michael left rich memories to be treasured and cherished.
