  11. Candle“Your wings were ready but our hearts were not”. Mikey, thank you for coming into our lives. You were an amazing, kind hearted, caring, loving brother-in-law and uncle. The best….

  12. CandleIt is with a heavy heart that I write these words, to say that we are devastated by the untimely and sudden passing of Mike is an under statement, his kind and loving personality brightened up even the dullest day. His ability to mix with all of us, young and old, was a joy to behold, he was a ‘people’ person, easy to sit and chat to, easy to listen to, and, above all, great to laugh with.
    Our hearts are broken for you too, Tootsie, your loss is immeasurable, but, please rest assured that we will be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers at this saddest of times.
    May Mike rest in peace.
    Always loved and remembered,
    Colm and all your Irish family.

  13. CandleMy son, there is no friend as loyal ,thoughtful , and with a heart as beautiful as yours . It was an honor knowing you and although the empty space you have left in our lives will never be filled , the joy and laughter you left in the wake of your presence in the lives of me , Carlos , Mary , and Barbie will sustain us till we are united again .

  14. CandleMikie… to say that we would miss you It’s such a cliché and understatement… Your love for others and life was so BIG And always so loving… Your kindness and laughter permeated every occasion… You always had a smile and a good word for everyone… Our Emerald Isle vacations were always so much fun! You will be so missed! Your wings were ready… But our hearts are not… Thank you for loving us! Fly high with the Angels now…

  15. CandleMikey I’m so sad to hear of your passing. My heart aches . But I want to thank you for a wonderful friendship. I feel Blessed to have you and Rose in my life. I will keep a special place in my heart for you. I will miss your camp fires and all the Mets Games with you,Rose and the Gang. I can hear you in heaven Let’s Go Mets.
