I have many fond memories of Mike from our days as students at SJC...staying up late talking while he was working security, encounters in Gallagher Hall, etc. But what I will remember the most is watching him with his family at Homecoming and other SJC events. My thoughts are with Jackie, Ethan and Lauren. God Bless.

Mike was one of my students at Saint Joseph's College. We remained in touch after he graduated. Only last year Mike took time out of his day to pen a brief note. I'll remember him fondly.
