My thoughts and prayers are with all of your family. I took care of Mike's mother, Mary, at Sunnyside Manor. He was an extremely gentle, kind, and devoted man. I was saddened to read about him passing, but I am positive he is happy to be at Mary's side again! I am fortunate to have known him and p.s....he grew the best jersey tomatos I have ever had in my life!!!

Mikie; You were the ultimate Uncle, I learned so much from you, everything from working on cars to plumbing and weather forecasting, the list goes on and on; you knew something about everything, quite incredible, great mind of a man. You also gave so much help and your personal time to Gary John for all the years you lived with us, 10 years in total, you truly changed his life. You will never be forgotten; as well, I will carry on the tradition of your values as a person of great honesty, honor,love and respect for others. You never asked for much from anyone but gave of yourself to all in anyway you could. I am glad I was able to give back to you as much as I could to help and comfort you in your life. You left this earth knowing the ones that treated you with the same honesty and the ones that may have not. Your with my Mom, I wish you much happiness as you start your new life of good health again. I have a long way to go on this earth but in heaven's time I will see you soon again. Thanks for the love you gave to Linda and Gary John. Your impact was grand...Love Gary
