I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with his sister at Lazarus in fine jewelry counter. I remember when I was a kid, going to the radiator shop with my father and he has always been nice & accommodating while working with his Dad. It was very impressive to see them fix radiators. They were such great friendly people and very helpful. He will be missed by people who truly care for them.

Mike and his parents were my neighbors on Brice St. They were always giving us a helping hand never asking for anything in return. When our mother passed they took my teenage brother, Tim in to there home! I never got to know Tiny very well as an adult as I moved away ,but if he turned out anything like his Parents Iam sure theres a place in Heaven for him! forever grateful

Mike always seemed to have a way of making people around him laugh. I will always have the Lad Vegas trip in the airplane laughed so hard we both were crying. I will miss you fly high with the angels R.I.P you are already missed.
