Thanks to all of your replies michaels death is one to be remembered by all of his family we all miss him dearly but the person I feel most sorry for is his and my best friend cassie she never got to know the cause of his death as her family said it would be too heartbreaking for her it snowed on the day of his funeral in January and cassies sister tasha as she found him hanging from the bannister also it was said By the owner of the pub that CPR was given at the scene
