Michael was the sweetest little boy. He was the light of my life growing up. He was so smart and quick. I was proud to be his big sister. Michael loved Barney and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We all doted on him constantly and loved to do it. He was always full of energy and loved to play sports. He was the star at my wedding! The best ring bearer a sister could ask for! Personally, he made me smile every time I saw him. Michael was always Michael - he spoke his mind and wore his heart on his sleeve. Michael was very strong minded and strong willed. He had a ton of friends. He and I were very close until a new friend decided 'it' would manage his life, mind, thoughts and actions. I miss the loving younger brother I once had. I just couldn't break through to reach him.
