Dearest Mike-- You were my 1st Love and my 1st husband.  I have always loved you.  I am so grateful we kept in touch all these many years!  You have a beautiful family & had a great life...but wonderful memories of a sweet, caring man will always be with us!  You'll be so very missed.  My heart goes out to your family!

I will always remember Mike for his kindness, gentleness and good nature.  He had a keen intelligence, good wit and an even-handedness in his relationships with others even amidst the tumult of adolescence.  Mike's open-heartedness, generosity, good humor and humility will be sorely missed. 

 .....with appreciation for a life well lived and for all that Mike brought to the lives of others, Barbara E.

Wow, old buddy, I can;t believe you are gone! I'm glad I stopped in just before Christmas to spend time with you and your family but I was expecting to come visit you again soon. I guess this shows how fragile life can be and we shouldn't take some things for granted. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I hope the stories we shared that day gave them some insight to your character and our life in high school. I can just imagine you are up in heaven cutting up in the back of Mr Fanning's and Mr Murphy's class just like old times. I am a better person for having been your friend and you will be in my heart forever...
