  1. Kay Morris condolence:

    So sorry for your loss!
    I can share in your grief!
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers ❤️


  2. Elizabeth Smith, wife of Bill Smith, deceased condolence:

    Michael was a friend for over 50 years. I will greatly miss his bold personality and generous spirit. His love of sailing that he shared with my late husband was the enduring basis of their friendship, but it was much greater than that. We thought of him often and looked forward to getting together too infrequently after we began spending winters in Florida. He was a unique person, never shy about expressing his opinion, and he will be greatly missed.


  3. Angela Eller-Bond condolence:

    Kathie and family,
    Mr. Michael will be greatly missed.
    His love of animals and sense of humor was great.
    I will miss the stories about the adventures you and Michael took to the boat, dinners, the condo and even the store. I loved that you both always had fun together.
    I am thankful for the times he was my buddy for fundraising events even if he was a bad/fun influence.
    Sending prayers and hugs.
