    Donna Branson says:
    Michael was my big brother. When we were kids, me and my little brother were the youngest in our neighborhood. So of course, we were always picked on, especially me. One big memory is when he showed up with a bb gun and ran the bigger girls up a tree after they had poured salt in my hair. We argued but we laughed a whole lot more. If I missed an exit, we laughed til we cried. If I fell over the chair after a little too much wine, he fell over the other chair laughing at me. My big brother made me laugh more than anyone on the planet when its hard sometimes to laugh at all. Everything was somehow funny.. If nothing else is remembered about Michael, his sons, Anthony and Nickie, were his life. They were always the first thing on his mind. He was a father, like all of us who made mistakes, but it was over as soon as it happened. The first thing he talked about was Ant and Nick, his boys. Michael was never afraid to say "I love you, Sis." When he loved you he would tell you. He was loyal even to people who had hurt him. I will truly miss him and always love him. More than the world!
