    We will miss you our dear funny friend! I’m crying as I write this. You always made us laugh no matter what was going on. We feel so fortunate and blessed to have known you. This world will definitely not be the same without you and we will forever cherish the good times we all had together. Take care of Cindy. See you on the other side. Much love, Teresa and Scot

    I didn’t know you well, but I remember how popular, happy, and funny you were in high school…and you were very nice to me on the school bus when others picked on me. Funny how it’s the little things that people remember about you. Its the little things that matter and make a person who they truly are.

    You were always making people smile! You were one of the people that made Westwood feel like a home for me and I’ll never forget the times at hillmont or you picking on Jamie! Your sons have had an amazing role model in you and I know they will carry your love and lessons with them always. Rest high!

    Mike for many years you and I laughed and joked at one another and seemed to always pull pranks on each other. I will miss you so, and never forget ya. Each year when college football rolls around and our two teams face each other, yours being Ohio State and mine Penn State, I can smile and say this one’s for you my friend. Please watch over my dear friend Cindy and understand that everyone loves and misses you dearly. Love ya my brother!

I know you will be looking down at us all and smiling that wonderful smile that you have. RIP Mike… I love you always!!!!
