I will never forget Mike Moran. He worked with my husband, Dave. They were good friends. Mike was such a kind man. He and his wife were so helpful to my husband and I back in 1988. We were looking for a house. He invited us to their home. He explained what he liked about New City. Thanks to him we moved here 30 years ago.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his wonderful family. He is now with the angels and will forever watch over all of you.
