Hey big guy. Wherever you are, if you are looking down on us or do something else mum I and all the others the fond of you that have spent years with you have hope that you’re now okay where you are. You missed us as much as we do you. You gave us so many beautiful and funny moments gift we will never forget. Big heart deserves a lot of paradise. Just as you were you will be always in flashback. We miss you very much and we love you. Forever.
Dear Michael, I hope you are doing well where you are now. The message that you are no longer with us, you hit me like a blow and am deeply sad. I miss you, I miss you. Why are you so soon? Why is it always the good guys? We have only seen once and written a lot, due to the large distance. From day one true empathy there immediately and could trust you, what only a few people make me so early. You’ve taken me as I am, from the very first day, just like me true. Always had an open ear for me. I thank you for your patience and for your friendship. It true a short but a wonderful friendship. Will always be in my heart and memories live on. Thank you that I could meet you.
Rest in peace, dear Michael.
Richard Bayliss words taken from CSDB:
Michael was a great logo artist and graphician. He did some fun pictures for some of my game projects, and we also did some fun stuff for Blazon and Crypt. In order to say farewell to him, I think it would be nice to produce a small demo playing tribute to him, and get people involved to write a text paying tribute.
Michael was a nice chap. He made really colourful graphics, which were very enjoyable to look at.
