Dear George and family,
It was just last evening I heard of Michael’s passing . I was saddened to hear the news. It was about a year ago I saw Michael at Charlie’s! He greeted me and hugged me and we reminisced about his years as a student at Joseph Howe school. He was as personable that day as I remember him as my student. Your family has endured traumatic loss more than once . I know you must all be devastated. I am so sorry. Mrs. Rooney

Chris and I had the pleasure of meeting Michael about 3 years ago for the first time at a birthday party for his little sister, our daughter-in-law Kristin. He was a kind and gentle soul with a big smile every time I seen him. You will be missed. Rest in Peace Michael. 🙏
