    I will never forget you – my Sundays will never be the same again without your call………………

  2. Brian English says:

    Michael, like his two brothers, was a truly gentle human being. His interest in our lives, his sincere kindness and his determination to stay in touch down through the years has been a tremendous comfort to both Anne and me and an inspiration to our children.

  3. Kurt Bunting says:

    Michael was a dear and loyal friend of 40 years who was always there for everyone and anyone who needed a helping hand. He never asked for anything in return, execept to maybe sit, visit, and join him in a cup of tea.
    He made an impact on me that will last my lifetime and I will miss my dear friend a great deal, along with his weekly telephone calls to check up on me and what I was doing.
    His life centered around his wife “Miss Ellie” and his daughter Holly both of whom he loved more than anything.
    All of us who knew Michael are fortunate that he was part of our lives and he will be missed very very much.

    Mike has been a gift in my life. He was a great brother-in-law and a great friend. He truly cared for people and loved God. My sister, Eleanor, was the love of his life. My neice, Holly, was the apple of his eye. He could not have loved two people more. I treasure my time I had with Mike. I loved him with all my heart.

  7. Fiona Lennox says:

    Mike was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was kind, thoughtful and hardworking. I will always remember fondly the week-ends with Holly, Eleanor and Mike out looking at horses and over at the Allenhurst. My thoughts and prayers are with Holly, Eleanor and family both here & in Ireland. Fiona and family.
