Sweet, sweet Michael. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to all of his loved ones, particularly Barbra. Although I didn't get the chance to know Michael in our teen years, he was one of my first close childhood friends. We spent first and second grade together at Lincoln School and we were definitely each others confidants. Keen sense of humor, extremely intelligent, always loyal, slightly awkward, cute glasses and turtle neck, long-sleeved shirts make

Dear Barbara, Dear Andrea -- How very sorry we were to hear of Michael's passing. Although we had the opportunity of meeting him only a couple of times when he was a boy in Brookline, he stood out to us as one with special "star quality" -- meeting our eyes with confidence and sincerity, a sweet and happy smile, but eager to return to the games he was playing with friends. Michael's poise with adults was remarkable. His Aunt Andrea

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was lucky enough to have Mike in my chemistry class at BHS. It was a time when he was figuring out what was most important to him, and i am, grateful to have been a part of his journey. I will miss him

I was Michaels 3rd grade grade teacher at the Lincoln School,in Brookline.
My memories of Michael are of a warm, witty, life loving boy who delighted in making others happy. He had the ability to brighten the mood of the classroom with just a smile, and the energy, creativity and curiosity that made him stand out! I have thought of him often over the years. I am so, so sad to learn about his passing.

I have only met your son over oovoo, when my daughter Shelli was hanging out with him and Richard in NY. Although I have heard lots about him from both my daughters (Ashliegh and Shelli). He was a very good friend to both and introduced Ashliegh to tubs of Cookie dough and showed Shelli just howto live life and have fun in a car when it's icy outside. Besides that from what I heard from them he was a very
