Tom, Kathy, Ryan and Lindsey,
I am truly saddened, and my heart breaks for you. I cannot imagine your grief, and words cannot take away your pain. Memories....knowing what a beautiful son and brother he was, I pray will help you to heal over time. The Giuntas have always held a special place in my heart. From high school, to college, marriage and births of our children. We had such fun when the kids were little. Time passed, with our lives taking different paths. I wish I could have watched Michael grow into the wonderful young man that he was. My deepest sympathy…..love, Marilyn (Whitbeck) Coomber
