Dear Maria, John, Alex and all your family,
My heart breaks for you at the loss of Michael. I’ll always remember his smile at QU and how he danced happily with us “girls” at your house during one of our get togethers. May your happy memories help you heal. With sincere sympathy and loving thoughts and prayers, Rest In Peace Michael.

I love you more than I can say. And I will miss you every day.
Remember the fun we had playing cards and games and the family cruises we all shared.
I’ll miss that beautiful smile and those big bear hugs.
I believe one day we will meet again and as I pray for your soul, may our blessed Mother watch over you. Love always, Grandma

I am so sorry for your loss! Mike and I went to Lynn together. We were really
close and he always made my days brighter. He always had a smile on his face and was always nice to be around. We used to go to our friends condo right on the beach, we would always sit on the deck and listen to music and watch the sun rise.
