My father relayed the news of Uncle Mike's passing to me. I'm so sorry to learn of this and wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to you all. When I saw the obituary, I was immediately struck by the strong resemblance between Uncle Mike and his dad (Pop-Pop) in this photo. Although I haven't seen him in many years, I remember your dad as a fun-loving guy who enjoyed being on the water and fishing. I think he even took us out on a motor boat once and (perhaps against better judgement) let me take the wheel briefly -- a pretty big thrill for a landlubbing kid from NJ! I wish our family had lived closer so we could have gotten to know Uncle Mike and you all better. Hoping your memories will be a comfort during these sorrowful days.
With deepest sympathy,
