    Count me fortunate to have known Michael over a 10+ year period, enough time to have seen him grow into himself. I first met Michael as part of the Finster clan that belonged to the Alpha Cats, a group that gathered at Tim and Ruth Lewis’s house every Saturday for a morning run/walk, coffee, and muffins. He shared dinner from time-to-time with Stuffed Possum and Cornbread, a fiddle band that the Finsters played in. And later on, he put his masonry skills to work on a leaky chimney at our house. He grew and changed over those years, but he always had a sly smile, an inclination to laugh and to be clever, and a warm spirit that he shared freely. A guy like that can’t be thought of and not missed. He is missed. Missed very much.
