  1. Cousin Mike!!!! Oh, man. I can’t believe you are gone. I will always remember the amazing ride-along I had with you during my college years with the fire and lighting the flares in the street and translating Spanish for the DUI guy. You made it one exciting night. Thank you so much. Love you. Cousin Jacquie To Marleen & Bob and Ethan: I’m so sorry that Mike is no longer with you. I know he’s smiling down on all of you with your mom/grandma and dad/grandpa. I love you all. Cousin Jacquie

  2. Mike, we will all miss you. You were one of a kind my friend. For your family, I am so sorry for his departure so early in his life. He will always be remembered for his fun and jovial ways. God bless him

  3. Mikie, Thank you for the wonderful gift of Ethan. This is the one good thing good we created. Watch over him as you will watch over everyone you have touched. You are missed. Find your Mom and Dad and together guide Ethan throughout his life. You are creating havoc on Earth, you bad boy. Many of our friends we haven’t seen in eons are bringing people together.

  5. I lived at Harbor Cove where Mike worked as a security guard in the late 70’s. He was a very special guy & loved by all. Not only did we feel safe when he was on duty but we had a great friend. I’m sorry to hear of his passing. I send my sincere sympathy to Mike’s family.
