Mick and Dorth,

Thank you for leaving a message. If I ever feel like I need inspiration and a motivation to live, you are only a few keystones away.

See you soon and I will be frequenting this page.

Love you,

This is the best obituary I ever read. I sent it to many people. May Mick's family know that his zest for life, love of his family, and sense of humor gave the readers of his obit a smile and an idea about composing our own obits, not the usual dreary kind, but one that will make family, friends and strangers -- all those left behind smile.

I don't know Mick - never met him, just happened to read his obituary in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. But I want to thank him for reminding us all 'What Life is All About'. And how amazing that even after he has started his long vacation from this temporary place, he is still touching lives and making strangers smile. My sympathies to his family and friends.

Hey Mick! Thank you for the wonderful obit...I'm inspired to do a similar one. Life's too short not to be happy even when we're "packing for vacation". Enjoy paradise! Hope to meet you and Dorth someday.
God bless you and your lucky family.

I did not know Mick, but feel like I do now. That was hands down the most powerful obituary! We should all strive for more quality family time like he mentions. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. He is obviously where he wants to be.

I don't know your father but from his obituary I can tell he was an extraordinary man who loved his wife and family. His obituary was witty and unique, filled with humor for all those mourning him. Actually brought a smile to my face reading about a man who obviously lived life to the fullest. I would have loved to known him. You have my deepest sympathy.

Amy and Michael:

We are so sorry to hear that you lost your Dad so soon after your Mom. Your parents always had a welcoming home and made us all feel like family. They lived life to the fullest and with so much happiness! There is a special place in heaven for the parents of the kids from Clearfied Street and Place.
