Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm saddened to hear of the death of my former neighbor who I'll always remember as helpful, kind, happy, and generous. He had so much more to live for and was much too young.
Marley and Brittany please know that I give you my heartfelt condolences for your loss. May he rest in peace. Fran Byrne

Mike, I still can't believe that you have passed. You will be missed by the many people who have come to know you over the years. I will never forget all the shifts we worked together on Saturday afternoons at NAVAC. I appreciate your help and belief in me in becoming a Crew Chief. Your sense of humor and endless teasing will always be remembered, especially when I would sit at the kitchen table at NAVAC trying to correct my students' papers.

To Mike's family, my thoughts and prayers are with you always. Keep your memories close. Mike will always watch over you.

To Mike's Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. From Kindergarten through high school, Mike was always such a nice and funny guy. I would see him from time to time over the years and it was always a pleasure to chat and catch up on things. I also had the pleasure of meeting his children Hope and Mike Jr. and it was clear to see what a great role model he was for them. I know you will all miss him but you will always have wonderful memories of him to hold in your hearts. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers .
