Michael is forever with us in our minds, hearts and special Exeter High School memories. He had a special competitive spirit that was intense yet free and easy. He had a way of lightening the moment while keeping its importance in mind. Michael remains a respected and revered teammate. He earned his praises. We have faith that our loving Lord welcomes him home and comforts all of Michaels family and dear friends. God bless Michael and keep him in the Lord's loving care. Jim and MaryAnn Brizek and the entire Brizek family.
