Uncle Michael inspired me in more ways than he will ever know. I was always proud to tell people about my Uncle in California who had been through so much, but never let it hold him back. He fought not only for himself, but for anyone who needed support. He was kind, but not weak. He treated everyone with fairness regardless of their background or status. I am so glad I had time to introduce him to Marvin and I will forever cherish the last few visits we had. I am going to miss him.
