Michael was deeply loved by many. He passed away on the day of love, Valentine's Day, 2016.
Michael grew up with his mom and brother in Cary, NC He lost his fight with addiction at 24 while living in a half way house in Wilmington, NC. His favorite reading was 'Just For Today'. He would definitely want all his friends and loved one to remember how precious this life is and to live it with hope and gratitude, one day at a time. Michael passed away with two bands on his arm, 'Remember' and 'Know Hope'. 'Remember' was for all who lost their battles with addiction and 'Know Hope', his brother's favorite saying and tattoo, who he had lost to murder four years earlier. He will always be remembered as a beautiful generous soul who left us far too soon. #knowhope #justfortoday
