MARION: Michael Robert McKiernan, "When you come to Heaven one day, don't look for me at the gate. I won't be on the streets of Gold, or at the Jasper Wall. Just keep walking straight through all the beautiful angels. I'll be the one kneeling at my dear Jesus' feet." These are the sweet comforting words Mike left us with.
A dedicated man of God, devoted Husband, Father, and loving Grand-Father, Michael Robert McKiernan, age 68, went to be with his Lord on April 26, 2012 at his residence, surrounded by his loving family.
