I am so sad to hear of Mike's passing. A great guy, loved working with him even though it's been a long time. He was one person I always enjoyed having in the building. God bless his family and may he rest in peace. A Verizon coworker

My Best friend and cousin. Mike and I grew up together on Fredonia St. Living next door to each other, our mothers, Kate and Need, had a hard time controlling us. Born 1 year and 1 day apart we always celebrated our birthdays together. Many will miss Mike but none more than I will. Childhood through the teen years we were always in trouble. Mike,someday we will meet again.

To Rogers' and Hermanns'

So sorry to read about Micky5. We remember a nice guy with a great sense of humor who took up pipe-smoking at an early age.

To Michael's family words cannot express the sorrow we fell for your loss. I only knew him for a short time but remember him as a kind gracious man. He was always happy to see me. I met him through Mike when we worked together. I can only hope that you all can fined the peace in your souls. God never gives you more than you can handle. Mary and I pray for your loss and remember you all in our hearts. May God grant you the peace you deserve. With love and caring from Bucks and Mary.
