I stumbled on this page today. I am Michael's son. I appreciate all of you and loved reading your supportive comments.
I was only an infant when my father died. I have had a great life. I am now a physician. My mother and family have been so supportive to me and I owe everything to them.
Thank you to all that still remember my father and the sacrifice he made!
