Dear Barbara and family...
I am truly saddened I by Dr. Mike’s passing and so sorry I did not know about the funeral mass for I certainly would have been there.
Tom and I had the greatest respect for him not only as our dentist but as a friend.
And as someone else stated he was a pioneer in TMJ. And I can attest to that. Another connection: My husband and Dr.shared the same birthdate and Dr. Mike passed on my birthday!
Prayers and c

I was shocked and saddened to see that Dr. Marfino passed away last week. I was a patient of his for 40 or more years (when he had his office on Linwood Ave., Buffalo until he retired) and always looked forward to my appointments with him as we enjoyed conversations about being Conservatives.
I know he was looking forward to his retirement and I hope that he had a few years of enjoyment.
Please accept my sincerest condolences to all of your family at this difficult time. May God's Peace be with all of you.

I even knew his parents and his late brotherNick Mike was a real gentleman I just saw him at our class of '50 Xmas luncheon and I asked how he was doing and how his daughter Susan and Tom were doing He will be missed by our CHS class and by all of us but we will all cherish the memories of Mike. Again , my heartfelt condolences to all of you!

Dear Barb and Family,
Our deepest sympathy on your loss. I spent many years working along side of Mike and remember well his passion for helping every patient who came to him. He was a life long learner and was always exploring any avenue that might improve the well being of all the people he served. He was a pioneer in TMJ treatment and brought pain relief and comfort to so many. His work is carried on now thanks to his generous mentoring of younger dental professionals.
I remember most of all his love for his family. He often told humorous but loving stories of his parents as he helped them through aging. He took justified pride in his children and frequently shared updates. Barb, you and the kids were clearly the center of his world and the love came through in his stories. I hope that you find comfort in your memories and your love for each other.
