Just learned of Michael's passing a few minutes ago from Tom Kartes. On behalf of Patrick, I want you to know that we are very saddened to learn of his passing. He was a warm, loving and deeply caring man. Blessings for Michael's journey and blessings for your love, which will remain.
Lee, I as so sorry for your loss. Though I lost touch with Mike years ago it just doesn't seem like it has been 42 years since High School. I am sorry I didn't learn of his passing until today.
Lee, I'M sorry to read about the loss of you spouse. My prayers are with you and your family. Julie Berry LPN
Lee, I was so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. I will always remember him as a soft-spoken, kind, caring, funny and generous man. It must be so hard for you be without him after having him a part of your life for so long. But we know that he had been suffering for such a long time and that now he is home with God. I really wish that I could be with you in your time of need as you have been with me in mine. And I wish I could give you a big hug! I will try to call you soon and try better to keep in touch. I am sending you my love and prayers to give you the strength you need to carry on. Take care Lee, I (we) love you.
Mike was a wonderful member of the last graduating class of Nazareth Hall high school. He will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with Lee and family during this time of mourning. Andy O'Brien.
Lee, I'm sorry to hear of Michaels passing and I am praying that you and your family will recieve Gods peace and comfort quickly. I have fond memories of the few times I was able to meet with Michael and I will always be grateful for the time he drove to the sleep lab and greated patients during a staffing crisis! I'm sorry I could not attend the wake or funeral.
I am so very sorry. It was wonderful to see you both at our wedding two years ago. The memories go back many years. He was a cute baby when I held him in my arms to be baptized. My thoughts and love go out to you. I am so sorry to be unable to be there with you, but we are coming to Minneapolis on Saturday and I will call you then. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Pat & Paul Peterson
Lee - We know how hard this time is for you and how lonely your house is. Mike was a wonderful neighbor and friend - we will miss him very much. But we all know he is at peace and pain free now. Please let us know if there is anyway we can help - even if its only a shoulder to cry on or a hug needed. Sandy & Del
Michael was a beautiful spirit - May God give you his comfort and love.

I am so sorry to learn of Mike's passing and that he had been ill for so long. We both worked at Blessed Sacrament in the late 70's and shared many laughs and good times together. He was a good man and a good friend. My prayers for Mike's family and friends.
Russ and I would like to express our sympathy to you and your families. He was a wonderful person and such a kind soul. We know that he will be missed by many.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry Michael passed away, he struggled so much for so long. you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
I wish you peace,
Lee, I am so sorry for your loss.
May Michael be at peace after fighting an 8-year battle with cancer. He lived his life with dignity and humility and we will miss his gentle spirit and compassionate soul. Michael married us 31 years ago and was a guiding presence throughout our lives. We thank him for his unconditional love and support. We will cherish the good times and remember with fondness evenings of laughter, sharing our hopes and dreams over popcorn and sometimes even scotch. With a heavy heart, we say goodbye for now, but know that we will see him again. Save a place for us dear friend. With much love, Tamra, Rick, Michael, and Michelle Anderson
