My wife and I are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Michael and I were coworkers at TWC, for many years. Besides being coworkers, we became good friends. Michael and I had a lot in common, growing up in smaller towns, enjoying family, country music, 80s movie quotes, and college football. Michael being an Aggie, and me a Longhorn, made for some interesting practical jokes over the years. Michael taught me a lot, during the years that we’d worked together. He was always eager to share his knowledge and expertise in State Government. Michael was always very courteous and professional, taking an interest in the lives and well-being of his friends and acquaintances. Michael was a true gentlemen and friend, and will be greatly missed. May the Lord be with you, and your family, to bring you comfort and peace.
