"He liked to make me laugh," Hunter Tylo told mourners at the Church of the Hills at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. "He had a beautiful spirit."
The Bold and the Beautiful actress also remembered the sensitive side of her son, who was known as Mickey and tragically drowned last week.
"He could identify people who were wounded and hurt," she said and People magazine reported. "There was a young girl in our neighborhood who was crippled and she used to take a walk at the same time each day and Michael would wait outside everyday just to say hi to her."
Many of the cast and crew of The Bold and the Beautiful were in attendance, including executive producer Brad Bell and actors Susan Flannery, Jennifer Gareis, Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook.
The set of the soap was shut down for the day.
