    Mike, i was sorry to read about your loss. You and your family are included in my prayers. Having lost both my parents already, I fully understand the impact of parent’s passing. You are lucky to have had your Father with you up to the current time. Take heart that he is with the Lord.

    Mike & Harry: Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of you father. Although I never had the privilege of meeting your Dad, my mother spoke very highly of your Mom, and of course, I was fortunate to work with Mike at St. Peter’s bingo during my high school years. Your family are in our prayers. Chuck Conroy
