Hi! My name is Chelsea. Machi was my cousin and best friend. The past four years have been hard for us all. I think of him everyday. He was awesome! He always had a smile on his face and when I was with him we were always laughing, having a great time together. He loved sports: Ohio State, Cleveland Browns and the Cavs! He loved to golf, listen to music, and spend time with friends and family. Once Leah and I made him wear a bra on his head to play You Don't know Jack. They were our thinking caps...duh! He told us never to tell anyone, but he knew it would get out. Especially because it was us :) We grew up together. I remember our trips to Florida to visit Grandma Leah and Grandpa Jim, Kings Island and all the sleep overs. I remember one night my brother Steve, Machi and I stayed up spitting spit balls on all the pictures on the wall in our living room. I was trying to fit in with the boys. Lol.
I know that most of you have memories just like I do. He was an awesome friend. He loved everyone and would lite up a room! We all miss him more that ever. I know that Machi is looking down joining in the fun. He wouldn't miss out on a good time!
