Not sure what to say?

My thoughts and prayers are with the Mike's family. He was always a kind and generous colleague and will be remembered fondly as part of the extended Whitney family.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mike was such a kind man, and we extend our most sincere condolences to his lovely family. Mike was so well thought of in our circle of Cureton's friends, and he will be remembered and missed by all. We are truly saddened by this news.

Mike Whalen was one of the best bosses I ever had at the bank. I started in the Credit Dept. He was an excellent leader and role model. Back in those days we only had typewriters and I would give Mike my stack of letters at the end of the day to sign. One day I saw him holding up one of the letters to the light. He called me to his desk and just shook his head at me and said stop using so much correction tape. I got the head shaking allot. He was a great man.

Sarah, my deepest sympathy is with you and your family for the loss of your beloved husband. May our Lord bless you with peace and loving memories. Virgie Benvenutti

Mike was one of the most loving and kind husband, father and grandfather we have ever met. We will miss the wonderful times we shared. Our love and heartfelt condolences to Sarah and all the family especially his grandchildren. He was so devoted to Grace, Connor and Cate and his wife Sarah Ann.
We will meet again in heaven.
Love, Noel & John

My condolences to the Whalen family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Whitney National Bank for 20 years. I will always remember Mike as a true gentleman and dedicated professional, and have missed his great sense of humor. Rest in peace, Mike.

Mike was one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. He was always smiling and always ready to help any one. He will be greatly missed.

I will always remember your genuineness, kindness, friendship.
