I was introduced to Michael through my daughter Christy Patterson. She always called him “Michelangelo” from the ninja turtles. Lol Christy went to school with Michael, he thought the world of my daughter. She gain her wings on 5-23-2003. He never forgot about her he told me he thought of her offended. In my heart I know she was waiting for Michael with open arms. RIP MichealI am fighting my own battle with stage 4 breast cancer. I will always remember your beautiful smile! Forever in my heart. Now I have two precious angels looking out for me
