  1. Michael,

    You will be missed by your friends and family. Thank you for the love and support you gave me during your lifetime. I hope that you are at peace and surrounded by all of our wonderful family members in heaven including our grandparents who you loved so much.

    My love and best wishes always,

    Your loving brother Jim

  2. We remember Michael very fondly. As the ringbearer for our wedding in 1968 he was elegant, poised, and proud. Over the years we often saw Michael during vacations and holidays in California, Ohio, Connecticut, Cape Cod, and Maryland. Even after all the children had become adults, Michael was very kind to attend our gatherings, including our 50th wedding celebration in San Diego, which meant a great deal to us.

    We will miss you, Michael, and will continue to have many happy memories.

    Mary Alice and Steve

  3. I have such great memories of Michael, one of my “cool California cousins” who would visit the east coast during the summers growing up. Whether we were all together at Grammy and Grandpa’s or on the Cape, there was always fun to be had. As adults, I enjoyed visiting with Michael at family gatherings and catching up on each other’s lives. He was so proud of Sean and Jona, and I’m so sorry for the loss of your dad. To Jim, Mary and Pat, may you keep the memories of your brother close during these difficult times. And to Uncle Jim and Aunt Gay, may the love and support that surrounds you from family and friends help heal your broken hearts. We are here for you all. Love, Erin
