I am saddened by your loss. He was one of my best friend in Widefield High School. He was kind, funny, most of all very thoughtful. May God keep you on his blessings. Iris and Happy Kewin

I grew up in the neighborhood with Mike. He was my brother's age and I saw him around. His mom was my first piano teacher. Mike and I became friends on Facebook awhile ago. My brother has been gone a long time so it was nice to connect with someone who knew him. I enjoyed Mike's sense of humor and was proud to know he had honored our country by serving in the Navy. I will miss our little online chats. Much love to his family and friends.

Rhonda and family- Mike was certainly a favorite amongst the Albanese group. I remember him as being respectful, kind and very humorous! I always admired Rhonda and Mike as a couple. You could see the bond and love there. Blessed be the heavens, and those he left behind, until you are all reunited with joy, once again.
