So sorry for the loss of your brother, Michael. I'll always remember him smiling and waving at the cars that drove by on Moore St. He was a special fella! It's people like Michael who can brighten someone else's day with a warm friendly smile like he had. He'll always be a bright star in heaven! May the Lord be with your family!
