    To Mike's loved ones. I had the priviledge to know Mike for several years and shared hundreds of cups of coffee with him at Einstein's. Mike was a pleasure to discuss the things we shared in common like sports, politics and they way we were raised. Mike was great fun to be around and was much loved by everyone in our "crew". He had a great sense of humor. He had great dignity. I will miss truly him. Ron Oronzio

    Mike or Pittsburgh as he was affectionately called by many who had morning coffee with him at Einstein's was a giant of a man with the heart of a puppy.I was one of those lucky enough to have regular contact with him. He was old school in values with basic wants and had dedication to family that one rarely sees . For the last 15 years I watched as he dealt with struggles in his various family illnesses travelling to Pittsburgh many many times with complete dedication. To the day he passed he looked over those around him that needed it and did so lovingly with never a complaint. How he remained so positive about many things around him that would have crushed the average man was amazing and I felt privileged to have known and been able to learn by his example. Mike will truly be missed by all that had the honor to know him. He will remain always in our thought and prayers.
