"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2


‎"Nothing that is loved is ever lost...no one who has touched a life, who has brought beauty to the world is ever truly gone"

I am Mike's fraternal grandfather. He was my hope for continuation of the family name,-- and my ego via his putting our name in Broadway Lights. He was a real pleasure. I remember two things about him: no fear of heights, and his many talents. Yet he seems to have needed unusual attention (like all actors).  During his last minutes on earth, did he think he could fly? It seems that, like many of the "spiritual world," he gave us happiness and yet he sought his own content from chemicals? Did we fail him because we were afraid of the bright flame of his soul? It often seems that there is truth in the often stated notion that "the good die young." Alas, if true, what is implied for we who remain? God Bless us all, and especially his parents.

I unfortunately never got the opportunity to meet Michael, although I'm friends with one of his good friends and a husband to his wonderful sister. I've only heard the most positive things about Michael and I hope he can see that his sister is in good hands, that i'll always love and protect her. He's the kind of guy I could see being good pals with. I look forward to meeting him one day..

When Christ resurrected on the third day, He reassured us that death is not eternal but, just for a while till His second coming. We trust we will see our loved ones again and what a moment of joy that will be! To be able to see them once again face to face and be able to embrace them! Praise God! We will see you again Mike:)

It has been a rough year for all those whose lives you touched. You have been in our thoughts and I pray that those who continue to grieve will find peace and comfort in knowing that you are at peace and with our Heavenly Father. You are missed every day!

Michael was not only an inspiration to follow our dreams and make them a reality, but also to love others like Jesus does. That is what i remember him most for - his unconditional love for literally everyone. Michael was not just a happy guy. He had joy - joy that only comes from God. You see, happiness is like a thermometer. It can only read the temperature and react to it. When one walks into

a room and becomes happy, they are reading the "temperature" of the room and simply reacting to it. But joy. Joy is the thermostat. Joy walks into a room of sad people and CHANGES the temperature. True joy affects others, even in the darkest of situations. Happiness fades, but joy remains

Michael is my grandson and he listened to everything I told him. At 65, I renewed my Faith. Michael, age 9, was impressed. I told him, All Things Are Possible Through Christ Who Strengthens Us,and decided I would do a full marathon, 26.2 miles. Michael overnighted me a poster, Isaiah 40:31, before the race. Those who wait on the Lord will soar on wings like eagles. Michael believed.

I know that before we left to move away to South Dakota, my husband and I had a conversation with Michael while we were there for our childrens' piano lesson. He was very excited about going to New York to start his new life in the acting world. It was truly inspiring to see a young man, that really knew what he wanted in life and wasn't afraid to go after it. He will be missed by all.

We attented church with the Simmon's family and worked with the whole family. I can not put into words how much of a team player Michael was. He was always there if anyone needed his help. The most amazing thing was that he was always willing, he never complained about making a difference for God's kingdom, for which he will be beautifully rewarded. Michael, we will miss you.

Michael is one of the nicest kid that we have known. Whenever we went to their house for our daughter's piano lessons, Michael would spend time with us, proudly showing us his backyard, and joining us in playing with his baby sister. He was always so fond and caring of his sister and it has always been a joy watching him and talking to him. He made his parents very proud.

"We would attend the Simmon's home for piano lessons for our kids. Michael had always a friendly spirit towards others. Our son very much enjoyed spending time with him. We always admired Michael's joy for life and peaceful spirit" We know that God has his arms around Michael right now loving him like always.
