Michael’s Story

Site created on June 4, 2012

I created this website in 2012 when Michael survived  two liver transplants as autoimmune hepatitis was slowly ravaging his body. His illness never touched his strong, generous, kind, loving spirit.  He kept sharing his hugs, his gifts, his love with so many. Michael and I lived through six years  of  endless joys and sorrows through these years. 
The support all of you  gave us nurtured us as we kept going, always hoping for the best,. We never lost our hope.  Michael went on his way April 13, 2018, not to his ending but his beginning. Michael's loving soul has found lasting peace. Prayers for all of us.

Dear Family and Friends,

It is my pleasure to share this family news.

Vanessa Carlton, my brother's daughter, my niece is starring in the Broadway Show, Beautiful 
June 27-September 1st.
Stephen Sondheim Theatre
124 West 43rd Street, NY

Vanessa was on the Tony's Sunday night to present an award. I don't remember who received the award. She thanked those involved in creating this opportunity to star in Beautiful.

Group tickets cost significantly less than individual seats.
It's possible to get tickets as low as $79 and then of course they can also go sky high.
I sent this news to several of my distribution lists. If you send an email to me I am doing my best to juggle preferred dates and seats to get the best price. The more the merrier!

Take care of yourself and your loved ones.
