    what can I say about Michael Roberts... Hmmm... He was a face with a smile, a devilish smile, it always made you wonder, "what is he thinking now?". He had the greatest Hello Hugs, High and Tight. The goodbye hugs were the same but always sad in a way. He was truly a man of his word. You'd better have been listening. LOL. He was a family man, every where he went was to be with family. Not always DNA match, but family all the same. He was also a "Foodie" in training, an experimental chef so to speak, "take what he loved that other people made, and try to make it better, 10x better". He always thought he was successful at it, and so he was. Michael was generous to a fault, he never came empty handed, if he had pizza, there was enough for everyone. He never came w/a 6pack, he came w/6, 12packs. and not the cheap shit. I will remember Michael for all of his wonderful attributes. I just want to say, "Michael, thank you, thank you for loving us, and letting us be your family". For all eternity. Sharon, Bob Stephen, Tim and Amanda

  2. Michael and I were in Scouts together. We grew up in the Scouting community together doing what we Loved, being with friends and being outdoors. Michael and I attended our first Summer Camp together what seems like an eternity ago. I wish I could have served with him, all the same, it is an honor to have served in the same province with him even if our paths did not cross. Tomorrow is for you my friend. Rest well brother, you've done your time in hell.
    Heroes all...
