Autumn & Malayiah my is breaking for you girls. Michael is my second cousin watched him grow up at Granny Lamberts and oh how his momma spoiled him, he was her world as you both were his. He loved talking about how proud he was of you both. You both know this. I pray for peace for both of you. Regardless how our lives changed and years passed Michael always had a smile to say long time cuz, he was truly loved and will be missed. I'll always remember him with a smile and think back to those granny Lambert days when we were all just a bunch of kids getting those fruit bags and socks from Granny for Christmas. That Lambert tribe truly loved each other and it showed.
I'll always remember Michael and cherish the good times at granny's and conversations later in life we had. I LOVE YOU girls.
