I wanted to thank everyone for their comments. The funeral drew over 300 people and by the time his father spoke, it was standing room only. A very nice service. Below is his obituary as it appeared in the Albuquerque Journal . The family requested donations to the NMSS in lieu of flowers. His obituary coincidentally appeared immediately above the one for my grandmother, which also asked for donations to the NMSS....

BERRY -- Michael S. Berry was born January 30, 1968 in Tucson, AZ. Our beloved son, brother, father, grandson and friend, passed away suddenly, Sunday, August 24, 2008, as a result of a bicycle accident while participating in the Rio Grande Bike MS Atomic Ride, a fundraiser for multiple sclerosis. The ride started Saturday in Bernalillo, going through the Jemez Mountains to Los Alamos, and returning to Bernalillo by the same route on Sunday. Michael was a very family oriented man and a friend to all who knew him. He cherished his family and friends and will be truly missed. Michael is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Roxann; two daughters, Kimberley and Jessica Berry all of the family home in Albuquerque; his father, Don Berry; his mother and step-father, Georgia and John Killgore all of Albuquerque; two sisters, Lori Hinson and her husband, Delanie, Tracey Walter and her husband, Scott all of Albuquerque; several nieces, nephews, other family members and friends who loved and will miss him. A Memorial Service will be held at Northdale Baptist Church, 123 Osuna Rd NW in Albuquerque, on Thursday, August 28, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 4125 Carlisle NE. Suite "A". ABQ., NM. 87102. 505-243-2792. Arrangements by Direct Funeral Services, 2919 4th St. NW. ABQ. 505-343-8008
