I was lucky enough to count Mike as one of my best friends for the past eleven years, We met in Boston when I moved there after college and quickly became inseparable and had the most fun together doing everything and nothing. Throughout the years Mike and I have enjoyed adventures in Boston, Cape Cod, Nantucket and beyond. When my husband and I had our first child he became the most wonderful “Uncle Mike” they could have, being there right after each child was born and being a part of every birthday and celebration. My whole family was enriched by Mike’s presence in our lives, and he was a part of so many celebrations and family events that we counted him as a true member of our family. Every event was enriched by Mike’s presence, and nothing will ever be as good without him. My heart is broken, and I know that there is not a day that will pass when I will not miss my wonderful friend. I know that my children will forever hear stories about their “Uncle Mike” and he will live in our memories.
My love and deepest, most sincere condolences go out to Tom, Kathy, Ryan and all of Mike’s family. You are in my thoughts constantly and I thank you for bringing such a wonderful person into the world and making him the caring, funny, loving person he was.
