Dear Robin, Holly, Ellie and the whole family,
We were so sorry to hear about Mike. He fought a very hard battle with all of you supporting him for these past months . He was such a good friend of George and Jane for so many years. I have pictures of the four of you in Florida having fun doing such crazy things - the beach place south of Naples, New Years antics and the time that George re-proposed to Jane. Before I even met any of you, I had heard so much about the family from Janie. Both you and Mike were there for Jane when George passed away until we could get to Buffalo. You were such a great help to all of us during that time. And when I came to visit Jane a few months later and received my tragic news, I don't know what I would have done without all of your help. I found some very dear friends during that time. Mike will be greatly missed. Thoughts are with all of you. Love, Pam and Tom

Oh Robin, where do I start. I guess from the National Parks Tour, when we met you and my sweet Mike, what a great trip it was with the two of you. Then we went on more trips together and spent time with you in Fl. each year you and Mike went down there. We loved the time we spent with the two of you this past August. We know how much you love your sweet guy and he will always be in your heart. Remember the life and good times the two of you had and it will carry you through. Lean on your family, they will always be there. When you talk to Mike in your dreams, tell him he was loved by so many. Mike always called me Barbie, I will never forget that. I love the special friendship we have. Love you, keeping you in my prayers and thoughts. Barb. and David

Our condolences to this wonderful family. Michael's mother and our mother were best friends when we lived in Buffalo from 1958 to 1967. We had the pleasure of meeting Michael again a few years ago at a St. Bart's reunion. We have so many fond memories of Michael and his family. We are so sorry for the loss of this lovely man.
