I am so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He and I went to school together and later on our paths crossed again at the Magnolia Plant. He was always friendly to everyone and even though I haven't seen him in a few years, I still remember that infectious smile he had that always made my day. Glenda Martin Jolly
