  1. Michael, as you already know, your father was a wonderful and caring man. He always amazed me as to how sharp-minded and capable he was, even to the very end. You took very good care of him and he loved you very much. He just wanted the best for you. Uncle Mikey, you are now in a better place and finally at peace! You will surely be missed. Love, Anita
