Uncle Mickey was a man of honor. He was well respected in his community and always wanted to do good. Always a gentleman. I will always remember how he stuck with the O'Connor family bad or good. He put up with the lot of us. Helped take care of my mother, Uncle and Grandmother. But my favorite times were when you would take us to get a Coke with a cherry. You will always be remembered with love in my heart.
