Not sure what to say?

Mike, I haven't seen you in a long time, but you were part of my youth. I remember your beautiful expressive brown eyes and your heart felt laughter. you made people want to be around you. Your passing from this world, although painful and sad for those left behind, into the open arms of our Lord, and those that have passed before you and who long to hold you again. Rest in Peace Mike, So many will miss you. I will remember happy brown eyes and a very special person.

Many happy memories as a friend and my next door neighbor as I was growing up. We know Mike will be missed!

Its hard to believe your gone. Ive know you since I was born. You were my Dads best friend. You were apart of family just about. You were my assistant coach with my Dad when I played little league Baseball. You always came over to our house on Ola ave alot and we loved when you were their. You always made us laugh. You always had a kind heart willing to help almost anyone. I remember you going camping and fishing with us alot when I was younger. Hard to believe...
