To the Flynn family, I extend my deepest sympathy and most sincere condolences as you grieve the loss of your family patriarch. Your own heritage is great...because Michael Flynn was a great man of God. He set an incredible example for all of us. May God draw you closer to each other and to Him during this time of your grief, loss and sorrow. May God comfort you with the same comfort that Michael Flynn comforted so many of us through the years.

I remember Mike on the day of my wedding to his sister Diane, to our joint outings at the Jersey shore or camping in Pennsysvania.

I also remember the tragic death of his son, and its recall whenever I babysat my grandchildren.

We exchsnged bits of news in our Xmas cards, I'll miss these periodic updates.

My father relayed the news of Uncle Mike's passing to me. I'm so sorry to learn of this and wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to you all. When I saw the obituary, I was immediately struck by the strong resemblance between Uncle Mike and his dad (Pop-Pop) in this photo. Although I haven't seen him in many years, I remember your dad as a fun-loving guy who enjoyed being on the water and fishing. I think he even took us out on a motor boat once and (perhaps against better judgement) let me take the wheel briefly -- a pretty big thrill for a landlubbing kid from NJ! I wish our family had lived closer so we could have gotten to know Uncle Mike and you all better. Hoping your memories will be a comfort during these sorrowful days.

With deepest sympathy,
Suzanne Passavant
