Mike I will miss our conversations and good times at the Post Office. You were always nice to EVERYONE. I will miss your cartwheels and splits at a moments notice. You were taken from us much too soon. God Bless You

So sorry to the Celotto family which also includes all of the Cove, 1/2 or more of the entire city and his friends in Hawaii . Mike made friends where ever he went including on the trains to NYC when we were going to rock concerts in high school in the 1970"s. He would work that train and make friends his laughter was contagious and loud! Mike,s Led Zepplin impressions and splits were great! Always remember the great times hangin on corner, the pond and parties we all had together . I hope you didnt suffer much RIP Mike
