    Going through life without one of the best friends I could have asked for. If only you could be here. My son would love you and the happiness you’re remembered as. You’re almost 20 man, I wish we got this time together.

    My daughter Cindy knew Michael since 1st grade at Edgewater Public, and also from living in Wildwood Subdivision. She was saddened to hear of his death. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

    You have a special place in my heart. You are such a wonderful kid. Full of joy and laughter. I still have the baseball you gave me for Christmas with the words that you wrote on it, "You are my favorite teacher...I want you to be my teacher forever." I remember unwrapping that Christmas gift and it bringing tears to my eyes. That was the best gift I ever received. You knew how to make people smile and you touched so many hearts. I am thinking of you and your family in these times. Praying your family...Forever your teacher, Ms. Moon

    Its so hard to believe that you are not here with us anymore Christian, On this day of giving thanks i find it troubling to be thankful for things when i know that your family is suffering today without you wishing you were with them, but I am thankful, I give thanks to you Christian for gracing myself and others with the light that you shinned, I thank you for your silliness and laughter (even if I always wasnt in the mood for it) you always made me crack at grin, and made me realize that sometimes laughter is the best medicine that you always dont have to take life so seriously and thank you for the short time I got to be a part of your life and the memories I get to carry with me forever! We all miss you like crazy and you always will remain in our hearts and on our minds, Shine on my little friend, Happy Thanksgiving buddy, love you!! xo
