    Dear Ann and Family- Our hearts go out to you on the passing of Mike. As my cousin, you could not have chosen a more true love to spend 42 years with. Mike was such a great person. Caring, helpful and a great craftsman. We remember visiting in West Haven, and he loved keeping us fed with soup and sandwiches. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God help daily to get through this time of sorrow. We Love you. Michele and Don

    Ann, I am so sorry for your pain from Mike's passing. You both were so strong these past few months. I saw how you both focused on each other trying to make it through the difficult time. You were comforting Mike and he was trying to comfort you. He was such a brave man. I love you both and sympathize with you with all my heart. I'm grateful to have been his friend all these years.
