    The first time we ever met Michael was when he came with Bridget to 3rd grade open house. Bridget sat right next to my daughter, Rachel, in Mrs. Ramsey’s class. Michael really stood out as a proud, loving and involved father, smiling the entire time. Our family sends love and prayers during this difficult time. It was a pleasure to meet such a special person and we are so very sorry for your loss.
