So many funny stories and good memories with Michael. Bill and I enjoyed spending time with him and you, Patty, very much. Introducing us to Godfather's and then it became a tradition. We will always remember the cheesecake....one bite..$1.00...second bite...$2.00 etc. He kept us laughing all the time. A big teddy bear with a big heart. We will miss him terribly. The Totillo family will continue to be in our prayers. All our love, Bill and Jeanette Mahoney.

So many memories I find it difficult to share one nor would I have enough room to share them all. "Little t" was the nickname I gave him many years ago and as always it has a funny story to go with it, as normally they all do. But all laughs aside he is a person with morals, conviction, faith, passionate temper, and was my freind. All these things and many more is what made me admire Mike, trust his judgement and respect his guidance, he stood by me and believed in me many times when others were not to sure, when others may have doubted and I will always treasure that gift. He was a tower of strenght and a baby bear cub rolled up in one and he loved him some Pat! I Remember watching him organized the entire car one time on a search only to have Pat come in from the field to grab stuff she needed and mess it up again, when she walked away he looked at me and said what, I laughed. He was so serious and said, it helps the missing people, she gets out there faster when she can find things. In that one moment I realized that girl can do no wrong in his eyes, I smiled, I always smiled when I was around "t". You've gone far past Manning now brother and we will all miss knowing your here with us. Rest easy my freind.
