I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was such a nice guy. He would do anything to help others.

I will be unable to come to the visitation since my brother, Jim's daughter died unexpectedly Sunday evening. The visitation for Sarah Ede Kennedy is the same time as Mike's visitation.

I met Michael at Hazelwood and have worked with him for many years. He was a very hard working individual and took his job very seriously. He always had a very kind word and a sweet smile. He was very kind hearted and will be missed very much. I count it as a blessing, to have been one of his friends, and for so many years.

My uncle monkey meant the world to me. I have so many treasured memories with him, such as dozens of Disney world trips and receiving hostess cupcakes and other little treats each time I would come visit. You will truly be missed. I love you so much. RIP

His smile and sweetness was amazing. Playing Santa Claus was a treasured memory. Shared with so many. True angel on Earth and now in heaven with Uncle Earl and Aunt Ruth. He will be truly missed.

Love and hugs to all of you.
