Dear Higher Learning Family,

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I relay news about Higher Learning alumnus Michael Arthur who passed away early in the morning on April 10, 2017. He would have turned 20 years old in November. As some of you know, Michael dealt with a number heath challenges which he always seemed to take in stride, continuing on even when he was in pain. He has now gone on.

There’s so much I could say about Michael – he was a multiple award winning Higher Learning student, etcetera, etcetera. But the most important thing about him was that in his short life, he had such a positive impact on so many. He was kind, helpful, warm, and supportive. He was thoughtful and intelligent. He was well liked and loved. He was someone people enjoyed being around, and he enriched the lives of so many of us. He was good people. There’s no better legacy to leave than having made the world a better place by your presence in it, and Michael certainly did that. I hope we can all say the same when it’s our time. Michael will be sorely missed.

As you can imagine, his family is trying to come to terms with this unexpected and unimaginable loss. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. If you’re so inclined, you can send condolences to Michael and Sandra Arthur, 676 Spring Meadow Dr., Westminster, MD 21158. I will post another message once I receive information about funeral services.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on and be grateful for our time with him!
