Michael was a shining soul with a beautiful smile. He possessed great kindness of heart and empathy for others. He was witty and playful. He was a bright young man. All who met him loved him. There were times throughout his battle with addiction that he managed to stay in recovery. But there were also the dark times of relapse. He was greatly loved by his family and friends who witnessed his valiant struggle. In the end, his disease took his life. We will always love him and keep as a treasured memory of Mike, his beautiful, bright, smiling face.
