Deborah and Sheila,
I am sorry to here of Mike's passing. I feel guilty, we've never met either of you two and we didn't know Mike had been in the hospital? My wife and I were in WNY, this past Sept, we could have visited, missed opportunities!!
Living out West in Oregon, it can be easy to lose track of family! No excuse, it is what it is.
It was not unusual for our two families to get together, Mike's Grandma Minnie was the younger Sister of our Grandma Ruth!
It has been a tough week for our extended Hooker/Samuelson/Sheehan family, Tim Sheehan, my first cousin, passed in IL Nov 4th! When it rains, it pours……….
I can't remember a time growing up when Mike wasn't out there with, us running around with a smile on his face!
Mike and Debbie came to my oldest Brother's Celebration of Life about 2 years ago I think, it meant a lot!
I wish I knew the right words to say, but I'm not sure there are any?
"Say not in grief' he is no more' but in thankfulness that he was"
Love to all the family and friends he touched, Jan and Terry
