Dear Father, i will miss our Wednesday night get togethers to go and play cribbage. The league lost an awesome member! You were always a well respected player, and a feared one at that! VSL Blues forever! In life, you taught me many things, honesty being at the top of the list. You taught me how to manage my finances, and save for a rainy day! You were the smartest man in my life who taught me many life lessons.I am so ever grateful for the wisdom you instilled in me, and will continue in life to be the man that i was taught and shown by example to be. You are my world dear father, and i will, strive to be as great of a man as you were.. All my love, your son, Mike.

Michael was such a dear old soul. I loved his sense of humour, frugalness and his Scottish accent.
He adored his family it would fill my heart with so much joy to hear Michael speak of his wife, she was his true love and taken to early.
I loved how he would respect her privacy, even though she had passed he would never go in her purse, where it was place beside the chair.
Oh dear Michael, you were such a great guy to know, this brings tears to my eyes. I will miss my visits up to your apartment to cut your hair, listen to music and for you to show me family pictures.
Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again.
Love,
Catherine Benoska Dolomont

To my wonderful Papa,

My life is definitely not going to be the same without you here, you were one of a kind. You were the caring and loving soul who made everyone smile with your jokes and life chats, I’m going to miss that about you. I know you are in a better place now, reunited with the love of your life, Nana. Say hello to her and give her a big hug for me❤️ I’m going to miss you Papa, and I love you forever.

With all my love, Rachel
