Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear about Mike's sudden passing! I always recall Mike having a smile on his face and sharing jokes with my dad when Mike would stop by our restaurant for a bite to eat. The world has lost a wonderful man.

I am so very sorry to hear about Mike. He was always so friendly and nice to me and my boys, whenever we visited Val and Tony and he was there. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Peter and I are deeply sorry for your loss. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Mike will be missed by everyone who knew him. He was a talented and kind man with strong values and deep love for his family and friends. We will miss him dearly.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire Rabka family, but especially Mike’s wife and daughters. We only knew Mike through his sister and brother-in-law, who is my brother. Their love and affection for Mike was obvious during time we recently spent together. We are deeply sorry for your loss and wish you peace and comfort wherever you’re able to find it.
