Michael was a giving person that spent a lot of time extending his heart and hands to help anyone that needed anything. To know Mike was to love him.  He kept everybody laughing and was always the life of the party.  In the third grade he rocked his principal’s world!  He and principal Horton became best of friends to the point of Michael being the “Principal’s Pet”.  Often calling himself “Bad Boy”, he would complete the statement with a great big smile.
