Michael took me to my very first dance in 7th grade.  He walked me there and walked me home.  He was very sweet.

Michael was a fun-loving guy and very pleasant to be around.  I remember the assembly called by Mr. Stamp to announce Michael's passing.  You could hear a pin drop in that somber auditorium.

I remember Mike quite well, and like Dave, I was stunned when Mr. Stamp announced that he died.  His brother Tom, who is also now deceased, was a good friend of my brother Al.  And, his sister Nancy was one of my sister's dearest friends, and she and I spoke this past Christmas.  We spoke of Mike and Tom, and there was a sadness in her voice as we talked about them.  Mike was far too young, and so full of life, when he was taken from us.  Candidly, there are far too many in our class who are no longer with us, and only illustrates how much we need to live the very best that we can because tomorrow is promised to no one.

Excellent words Bob.  The toughest part of this 'administrator' bit is finding out about all those who have passed - I often say, "Gee - he/she was such a nice person, I wish I had gotten to know them better, or kept in touch with them long after High School."  There will be too many empty chairs at our reunion this time.

As for Mike, he never failed to make me smile!  It truly was a shock to know we would never experience his smile, his laugh, his antics again.  I worked on the yearbook that year and tried my darndest to find the full quote to accompany a photograph I had for the inside back page - "In the forest a tree has fallen........" - dedicated to Mike and Paul Minardi.

Live every moment to it's fullest.
