Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Another year has come and gone and a lot has happened. Rachelle and I are expecting a baby girl in early February and are excited and extremely happy. God has blessed us over the last year and we hope all is well with you and yours.
Rachelle has completed a year of Graduate School and will continue in the Fall semester. She also has worked as an assistant director on a couple of plays "Noises Off" and "The Fantasticks", both in which I appeared. It was great working together on these shows and we hope to continue this practice if it works out. I just finished playing Scrooge in a production of "A Christmas Carol" with my students and directed by Brad Carroll. Teaching this year has been exciting and it was nice that the students across campus voted me Best Professor through their Student newspaper "The Rebel Yell".
Rachelle and I want to wish you all the best of the Holiday Season and the Happiest New Year ever. Remember it is a time to count your blessings and not to forget those who are in need.

After sending you our news about a baby coming into our lives, we are saddened to say we had a miscarriage on Sunday evening. Of course, we will remain positive and try again. Our Doctor is amazing and assures us and says there is no reason why we shouldn't still have little ones. So God willing, we will have a family on His time and in the meantime we are thankful for all your prayers, good thoughts and support.
We wish you all a Happy Holiday

I can't believe that another year has gone by, and it's the Holiday Season once again. A lot has happened to Rachelle and me over the past year. First of all we were married January the 10th, so the year signaled a new beginning for us. We hoped it would do the same for all of you.
In February after having a wonderful Valentine's Day, Rachelle started work as the choreographer on the play Musical of Musicals The Musical. She received rave notices for her work, and I was very proud!
In March I began work as the director for the new play Red Lights and Sirens. Rachelle was my assistant director as well as acted in the role of Sasha. It was a great collaboration, and this play was also a huge success. We also worked on a new Roger Korman movie together called Break the House (working title). It was directed by Francisco Menendez, and I costarred on the project which also starred Eric Roberts.
As many of you know my father passed away in May. For any one to have known my father, Eddy, was a blessing. He will always be missed. Our hearts go out to everyone who has lost a loved one this past year.
The summer was spent with my teaching summer classes at UNLV and Rachelle preparing for Grad School. We also got in a trip to Montana to visit with Rachelle's family. "We" fished on the Yellowstone River. I baited her line, and Rachelle caught a fish!
Once the semester began, the months to follow flew by. I performed in the play, Fool for Love and Rachelle assistant directed a couple of one-act plays. We meet with Reetta (webmaster) during her vacation in Las Vegas and we had a great time and are looking forward to visiting with her again. Maybe the next time will be in New York. With the semester finally at an end, we are looking forward to a little time off together to enjoy the holiday season.
In saving the best for last, we are happy to announce that we are expecting a baby around the beginning of August next year. We are thrilled to be starting a family and feel especially blessed this holiday season. Happy holidays to all of you, may you have a blessed new year!

On Sunday January 10 2010, Rachelle Reichert, my long time fiancee, gave me her hand in marriage at the Roman Catholic Newman Center on the campus of UNLV in Las Vegas. It was a small, intimate and beautiful ceremony and the happiest day of my life. When we receive pictures we, of course, will send them to you through the site. Thank you for your support and prayers over the years and we hope God will bless you as He has blessed us.

Another year has gone by, and I hope it has been a healthy and prosperous one for you all. I would like to once again thank you all for your continued support and good wishes. I am always surprised and grateful that there are so many of you still interested. Rachelle and I would like to extend to you all a Blessed and Happy Holiday Season!

Michael's response to what Hunter said at the luncheon and the reasons she gives for why she was late:
"Everything Hunter stated at that luncheon concerning us was a lie. We had no run in with her that day. It was scheduled as a day visit. We showed up. We took the girls for the day and dropped them off at the agreed upon time. We will not tolerate the defamation of character, especially public name-calling as referenced by Hunter's comment that Rachelle is my "girlfriend" and that "she was this blonde bimbo." Rachelle is my fiancee, and I'd like to make it clear that as a practicing Catholic and a loving person, who also just happens to have graduated Magna Cum Laude with two University BFA degrees in both Theater and Dance, Rachelle is the furthest thing from a "bimbo" I know. After we're married, it will be an honor to call her my wife and, God willing, mother to the children we hope to have."

I want all of you to know that I have found a true love in my life, a love which I never thought existed before. I am very happy and pleased to announce my engagement to the beautiful and talented Rachelle Reichert. Rachelle is an actress and dancer with B.F.A. degrees in each. Rachelle and I have been dating for one year and nine months and have actually been engaged for the last seven months. Family and close friends have embraced our relationship from the beginning, and we have graciously accepted their love and support. We appreciate maintaining our public privacy, but we wish to declare our happiness after having had to struggle through the last few months of sadness following my son's untimely death. I want you all to know that Rachelle and I love each other unconditionally and share everything including our Catholic faith. I never thought I could feel this kind of love for anyone but God has shown me the way and the woman. Future plans and pictures will be forthcoming. Take care and God bless you all!

Thank you all for your prayers, good wishes, condolences, and support for me and my family during this very difficult time. Mickey was a special guy who loved life, his sisters and brother very much. He was a good son and since we spent his last year of high school living together, we became very close and I thank God for this.
Mickey was a compassionate and courageous individual who was loyal to friends and hated injustice to his fellow man. He would stand up for what he thought, and even if you disagreed with him, you always knew where he stood. He had a great sense of humor that bordered on the cynical and bizarre. The night before he left us, Mickey, his brother Chris and I had dinner and Mickey told stories, jokes and generally entertained his brother and me. I sat there and listened, laughed and felt so proud of my sons and how God had blessed me with them both. Chris left to pick up his girlfriend from work and Mickey and I had coffee together. He told me of his plans for the future and I noticed how focused and passionate he was. I thought to myself that through all the seizures and other things that had affected his life, Mickey was more than okay. When we parted that night, he hugged me and told me he loved me. He didn't do it out of habit, but as someone who really meant it. I loved him so much and I always will.
Again, thank you and may God bless you and keep you always and in all ways,

Season's Greetings and Merry Christmas to All,
I want to thank all of you for your good thoughts and your support over the years. The love and encouragement you have shown me over the years has had a profound effect on my life in a very positive way. This past year, as many of you know, has been particularly hard on me and my family. I thank you for good thoughts and I ask you to remember my kids as well as your own in your prayers.
Every year at this time it seems to me that people are a little more kind and a little more patient with those around them and this is a very good thing. Please remember those less fortunate and especially those who have gone through hurricanes, earthquake, tornadoes and the like. Remember those soldiers and sailors overseas and their families. Let's carry the spirit of the season all year through.
Thank you for the encouragement and your desire for Quint/Nola to return to GL. After all these years to still be remembered in a role that I thoroughly enjoyed doing makes me feel honored and successful. It is wonderful feeling and an awesome responsibility!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year. May God bless always and in all ways.
