I don't know if you will remember me but I was Mike's third grade teacher at Orchards. I haven't seen him since those school days but recognized the name & face. Mike was a kid who stood out because of his enthusiasm and energy for life. I'm sorry his life was so short but I bet he packed it full and left many wonderful memories to his family & friends. Blessings to you all....

Mr. & Mrs. Rittenhouse, Our Hearts go out to you both during this difficult time. Mike was a Great friend of ours. He was always there for us willing to give us the shirt off his back if that is what we needed. Mike was a Great listener & I loved trying out new card tricks on him, than watching him methodically try to recreate what I had just done. Mike was a master with his attention to detail and several times he would actually figure out my tricks! Amazing! A very intelligent guy! We will truly miss him!
