Michael is my brother. He fought a battle with anaplastic thyroid cancer that ended last night and he is at peace. He touched many people in his life with his smile, kind actions and gifts of his hands, including woodworking, papercutting and tatting. His love of animals was shown through volunteer work at animal shelters and the many abandoned pets he took in and gave a loving home. I will miss him terribly, but take comfort in the love we shared and in knowing his struggle to breathe is over. He is at rest and I am very blessed to be able to call him my brother.
