Matilda, Frankie, Heide, Abbey and families - Bruce and I are so sorry for you loss and will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. Mickey was a wonderful guy who always had a joke or laugh. I always enjoyed seeing him in the audience at the shows. I'm sure that he and Uncle Tom Manion are together and having a good time.

My deepest sympathies to you all at this difficult time. I have such great memories of living on Compass Road.  Your dad took me out on a boat for the first time in Chincoteague.  Memories are such a comfort and I know they will help you a lot in the coming days. Love to you all❤

Dearest Matilda & Family:

Ron and I are so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed sitting with him during coffee hour at church. He shared memories of his "boating" days at the shore and water skiing with his daughter, Jan. It sounded like they were both "pretty good" on the skis!  I will remember him when we last visited in Mid-Dec at your apartment. He was in good spirits and glad for the company.  I know this will be hard for you as you spent practically your entire life involved in Mickey's life; including school days.  He was one "swell" guy! May it help to know that your extended church family of friends are keeping you close in our thoughts and prayers. Take care.

Love & Blessings, Linda & Ron Zynn

        David, we have worked together for roughly 16 years now and we have become pretty close. Both of us growing up in the Fire Service following our fathers I can only imagine the emptiness that is left behind with the loss of your father. I can tell from all the stories that I have heard you tell about your dad that you two were close and that he will be missed. Please know that you and your family will be in my families thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. If i can do anything for you let me know.
