    A truly honorable man who said what he meant and meant what he said. Impeccable integrity and honesty made him a perfect friend, if you were fortunate enough to have known him. If you knew him, you loved him. His presence was a blessing. Rest in peace Michael Catching. You will be sorely missed.
