To Michael,

Michael, you've been a good brother and brother-in-law and also a good friend. We enjoyed our visits and talks with you over the years and enjoyed watching you create your works of art. It always saddened us that you suffered most of your life with an illness that caused you to be captive, especially because you were such a free spirit. You also inspired us by how you always tried to live with as much dignity as possible given the situation you found yourself in. Your spirit is finally free, you are no longer shackled by the many challenges you had to endure. We love you and miss you. May your spirit soar like an eagle!

With love,
Your sister Sue and brother-in-law Frank
