Your Memories

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike thru work but when he left us all too soon as it was, he was a friend. Words can not express the sorrow my heart feels for his family at this time. I see exactly where Mike got his kindness, whilst dealing with such heartache and pain his family made sure there was a place for all of his loved ones to share their memories. I can’t thank his family enough for this beautiful website that was put together. I will never forget a week ago today. No more than 2 weeks ago were we laughing and joking together in my office as well as running around and gathering as many pumpkin spice and French toast flavored K cups 4 hands could hold. I’m proud to have been able to be a part of Mikes life even in the littlest of ways whether it was just listening or making jokes.
The last big snow storm we got we both were feeling a bit stir crazy and rather hungry honestly (and after reading some of these stories we all know how big a part food played in his life) as was in his nature he offered to come pick me up mid blizzard to try and find something to eat. The one and only place that was open was American joes, not more than a millisecond after walking in the door did the fire alarm start going off. I personally thought this was hysterical and couldn’t stop laughing just seemed like someone did NOT want us to eat that night. Mike stood diligently in line asking, practically screaming over the alarm “can we still be seated” even as the single file line started forming and people were walking out. We did end up finding something to eat that night needless to say it wasn’t at American joes, this is one of many times I will cherish forever.
I know you’re watching over us all smiling down on us and keeping us strong thru this difficult time. Tomorrow is going to be profoundly hard for everyone you have touched, but for your family and friends it will be made easier with the thought that we are all gathered together to celebrate your life and what a gift your friendship is. I have lit a candle everyday and say a prayer every night for you and your family and will continue to do so. Your kind heart, generosity, and beaming personality will NEVER be forgotten!! May you rest in peace my friend!! Xoxo

Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

I first met Mike when he came to work at Strong Nuclear Medicine. We’ve been friends since. There were many good times, at work and outside of work. Even when Mike moved away, he would call me or I would call him to catch up with whatever was going on, especially on his drive home from work in Boston to the Cape. Nobody could describe any situation going on like Mike. No matter the situation, his explanations would make me laugh.
I’ll miss those good times, laughter, phone calls and friendship. My life is better for knowing you. Thanks for all you gave to me.

Words cannot express how much we will miss Mike. He was such a positive part of so many people’s lives, and our family has been truly touched to hear stories and memories from everyone that knew and loved my brother since his passing.

Knowing how many of you cared for Mike, it was important for my parents, Lindsey and I to create a site where you would be able to share these stories and relive all of the great memories and photos from throughout the 34 years we were blessed to have him in our lives. Please do not hesitate to post as many as you would like, as often as you can to help us honor Mike’s life.

Be sure to check back regularly as we will keep updating the site as much as possible.

Thank you for all of the love and unconditional support you’ve join thus far. It truly means the world to us.

This is just a short story about my son who will live within me forever. I’m so Proud of all his accomplishments that I could never begin to tell them all. Sure, we had our moments but we always got through them.

Michael was truly a people person. He would come home for the weekend and spend his time with his family during the day and friends at night. He couldn’t always make it home for the holiday’s because of the weather or his work schedule but we knew he was in good hands down at the Cape. His friends always opened their hearts and home for him which made it easier for us. There are no words to describe how empty I feel. I will think of him everyday as always. I’ll cherish the 34 years we had him and be glad I told him I loved him.

Thank you all for your prayers, pictures and the great stories. For those who knew me, my famous line was “another first for my book” well guess what? This will be my final chapter. The book is closed.

Thank you God for my other son Ryan too, he has been a rock for us all. I know its not easy for him but again his friends are great and will help ease his pain.
Thank you again for all your support at this difficult time. I hope to see you at his memorial Friday.
