    I was very sad to hear of the passing of my cousin Michael. Although I never saw much of him, he was a wonderful and successful man who was very devoted to his family. My father Bill really loved cousin Michael and would look forward to visits with him, Mona, and Jennifer. You are in our prayers. With deepest sympathy, Mary and John

    In the short time we have know the Kandzer's we feel they have become family. As Renters of their Chesapeake home Mike NEVER hesitated if we needed anything! He was unbelievably generous, caring and always made sure we were never inconvienced with the smallest of things. I'm sure he is watching over us now to make sure the roof doesn't leak, and the garage door keeps working. We are so blessed God put the Kandzer family in our lives..Mike will be sadly missed!

    Our hearts to out to Michael's family. Going from a teen who built Uncle Dick a wonder ship model to a man who was a model to all. We had nothing to do with all Michael's successes, but loved hearing about his experiences and great career. He was loved by many and was our shining star. Rest in peace. love Uncle Dick and Aunt Jackie
