My condolances to all the family and friends that were a part of Mike's life. My prayers are with you all.
I went to school with Mike and work with Bobby at the Housing Authority. Mike was extremely comical, quick to laugh and never serious. He went from "Class Clown" to "World Class Hero" - only Mike could pull that one off!
I wish the Gaski & Osiecki families peace as you work through your shocking grief - thankfully your last hours together were such a blessing. I'm sure you have many other times to remember as well to console you.
Rest In Peace Wildcat. Enjoy your time with our buddies Tommy, Gary and Bobby - elite company in deed. Semper Fi.
