Michael was my daughters (Sarah) father-in-law. I never had the opportunity to sit and have a conversation with him, but to hear Patrick, Sarah, and my grandchildren talk about him, no doubt....he was one terrific guy. After his long fought battle, he is now resting peacefully in the arms of our Savior. He will be greatly missed.

"GODSPEED MIKE".......Gordon & Ellen Masak
