I have so many great memories with you Mikey. I'll never forget that great trip to Cuba and my 13th birthday with you. When I saw you last we had a great time talking and laughing. I'll never forget that smile and I will miss you everyday. You are gone too soon. My thoughts and prayers are with the Novak family. Love you so much Mikey. You weren't just a family friend, you were family. I'll never forget my Uncle Mike.

We are truly saddened by the passing of our dear neighbour and friend, Mike. From the first day we met Mike just over 5 years ago, we knew we were blessed to know such a wonderful person. Mike was always ready to lend a helping hand, to smile and make the day brighter. We miss him so much already. Mike, your time with us was much too short.

Mike did some work for us many years ago and in the short time we got to know him we knew he was a great man. He spoke lovingly all the time of his children. He was honest, friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

We know he will be missed and we pray for his family during this sad time.
