Auntie Annette,
I will always cherish my time spent with Uncle Mike. He is truly an inspiration and will forever be missed. May you find peace in knowing that his legacy will live on and that he is now watching over you. I love you so much

Dear Annette, Angelo, Elaine & Joseph (and spouses, grandchildren ~ Heartfelt condolences to all of you. Please allow me to continue with a few more treasured thoughts that remind us all of the accomplishments, the happy, full life with Annette by his side, and his peaceful, natural passing into the next phase of his life (perhaps more pastry?:). He left behind something that could never let anyone forget him, the business that he created, nurtured and loved and the family that is part of all of it, and of him. What a legacy, so rare, so incredible. I have so many memories of Mike's as a child when Annette graciously gave me those miniature ricotta cheese pies as a teen. :)))... Anyhow, cherish all that is left, and importantly, in the simple ways that were the ONLY ways in the beginning, and then the rest of you took it to new heights. God Bless,and much love to all of you ~ Sharon
