We were so very sorry to hear of Mickey’s death. We liked him very much. We are neighbors of Dorothy. We also regret that we cannot attend the viewing or funeral as we will be out of town.

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. Please accept my family’s condolences on your loss.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Mickey and Joe,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. May the many wonderful memories you have with him get you through this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
To Cathy, Mike, and Joe and to the rest of the extended family…I was shocked when I heard the news and even this morning, I still am in disbelief. But, it is reality…the circle of life for Mick is complete. I wish you prayers this morning, not necessarily for Mick because he will be all right. He is in a better place and, now, is in the hands of God! I do offer you prayers, because his loss will be difficult to handle. But, you are a strong family…stick together and support each other, as each of you will need the others’ support at various times. I wish you all the strength that Jesus can give you during these difficult times. Cry when you have to cry and laugh when you remember something that Mick did that was funny. Always remember, you will be reunited someday!
I am so very sorry to hear about your Pop’s sudden passing and I send love and prayers to you and your family.
Mike, Cathy and Joe.
We were saddened to hear of your Pop’s passing. Uncle Mick was a great guy always full of fun. I remember spending a week in the summers there with you guys, always fun to go into the bar and have a coke.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your families. We regret we can not be there but know that we are with you in spirit.
Rocky and Yolanda Pizii and family
Cathy & Bruce,
You are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your Dad and Father in Law. I hope that your memories will sustain you through this difficult time and bring you happy reflections in the times ahead. When I worked for the City of Lancaster Street Department during two Summers while at F&M your Dad was always friendly towards me and someone that I respected, most likely greatly influenced because he was the Father of a girl I had great admiration for.
God bless you and your family today and always!
Our sympathy to Mickey’s family on his passing. I have many fond memories as neighbors on Rockland Street. Please also extend our condolences to his brother Joe.

Dear Michael, Cathy, and Joe,
My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you and your families. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Uncle Mick. His warm smile and resonating voice will forever be in my memory…even as a child walking into Mommoms house at the holidays. Uncle Mick always took the time to talk with me and make me feel special in the crowd. I can see him now dawning his signature snap cap and that unforgetable grin.
I am so very sorry for your loss. He will be greatly missed.
Sincerely,with love and prayers,
Roxanna Garnett Hasaka and family
