    Mikey and Shirley – that was the couple of the century – From the first day that you came into LifeSpan, you were Shirley’s special friend. Shirley has a love for you that will always be there and so do I. You will always hold a spot in both our hearts. We love you still and you will be so missed. Rest in peace my little friend.

    Mikey, I’m not sure where or how to start you brought so much joy to my life and everyone else that you met. You taught me that a disability is not the person with it but the person that views it that way. You have always been so special to me and the best brother-in-law, friend, and buddy a person could ever want. I am so honored to have been part of your life. Enjoy your new life, keep smiling and watch over us until we met again. May you be in piece and joy. Your Buddy Forever
