Michael loved life and lived it to the fullest. He did more in his short 27 years than most do in a full lifetime. He will be missed terribly by all those whose lives he touched.

Memories of Michael

From: Jennifer Fugaccia (August 2005)

As I sit here writing this message I want you to know what an amazing man Michael was. I am Jennifer Fugaccia (Now Skelley) and I was blessed to meet Michael through the Newman SIngers. We joined the same night back in 1996. Michael always greeted me with a "Hi Fugaccia" and we became fast friends. It alway seemed like the people who started together became good friends.

Michael sang in my wedding in September 2001-He made my wedding so memorable by learning Italian and singing parts of the song"The Prayer" in italian-My relatives were visting from italy and they loved hearing the Italian words. Michael did an amazing job. I am so thankful that I have it on video.

Another funny memory of Michael from my wedding.....As the reception was close to ending he was standing out in the parking lot attempting to talk to my Italian relatives (they could only speak Italian)--BUT--Michael was speaking to them in Spanish---Not Italian. Needless to say my relatives couldn't answer back :)

I have so many great memories that will live on forever....I will keep remembering. I was honored to sing for Michael in celebration of his amazing life at his funeral.
