My heart goes out to one of the most amazing families I've ever known. My son went to school with Michael from K5-graduation. Michael was a sweet caring boy the entire time I knew him. He was very kind. Definitely a role model for his peers. The entire family was. They were always together. I can't recall a single time that I saw Michael that he wasn't smiling and happy. He loved his family fiercely. The world is definitely not quite as bright now with him gone. Please know that Michael was loved by his peers and many people are praying for you now. I wish there were something I could say to make it better. Please know that I will care and will be praying for you now and in the days to come.
