We are so sad and sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. Haven’t seen any of you for a long time, but have great memories of all your family, and the old days. We always thought of Mike as “the cute one” of the 3 boys. Hoping you have some peace in your hearts, knowing that he is happily in Heaven with all the loved ones, who have waiting so long to see him again. Hold your memories close.
With Love & prayers,
Jeanette, Wendy, and Korinna (Burke) Kehoe
