Messages of Condolence

  1. Eleanore Mate condolence:

    Michael’s wonderful smile, warm greetings, and friendly conversations will be missed at. St. Louise. Diane, thank you for bringing your Dad to Mass. He just kept up his spirits, and you were his blessing. I first met him because my husband, George, knew him somehow through their involvement in printing.
    I am sure he has greeted you, Michael!


  2. Larry Wiginton condolence:

    My condolences to the Kurey family. I live across the yard from Mike, and I visited with him and Maggie on their walks whenever I saw them.

    We showed him our newest puppy when we first brought her home and he held her and watched her grow up the last year or so. He was a pleasure to be around and I always loved to hear his stories.


  3. Steven Lifka condolence:
