To the Gallagher family, 
I’m so sorry for your loss. I went through St.Joe with Mike all 8 years (and Lancaster Catholic as well although I didn’t see him as much there). He was always fun and funny. I have many great memories of him. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Deepest sympathys to Cindi & Jack:   I had the privilege of coaching young Mike in basketball at Saint
