    Aunt Karen and Mara, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Uncle Mickey had a heart of gold. So many times I wanted to thank him for taking such good care of my dearest friend, Lisa. I believe he was her angel here on earth. I could have never asked for a more kind, funny, sincere and loving man to look after her during her childhood and adult life. Again, I’m sorry. He was an incredible man and will truly be missed.
    Love, Shelly

    I worked with this beautiful man for many years. Always a friend, co-worker and once in a while a jokester. Myself and my team that worked on projects with Mickey will miss this dear man. I am going to miss saying almost every morning ‘hey Mickey, how’s Minnie ?’
