Dear Pat and Family, I was very sorry to hear of Mick's Passing. My career in selling Perfusion Products started the day Mick hired me as a Sales Rep in Chicago for Bentley Labs. He was the Best Manager I could have ever had always supportive with a kind and happy personality I always looked forward to calling on accounts with him. Unfortunately we lost contact a few years ago but I always thought of the many times we worked together at Bentley and then at Medtronic my Deepest Sympathy to You and Your Family God Bless You All.

So many wonderful memories for over 50 plus years. The places we went together with you and Pat and fortunately the pictures I have can fill several books. Our family trips together for years on lakes in KY. As we go through life we have only few really close friends we can count on and you were the BEST. I Love you boy and I’ll see you on the other side!

Jennifer and Family, I was saddened to hear of Jennifer's father's passing today. They say a father holds his daughter's hand for a short while, but he will hold her heart forever. As you mourn this tremendous loss, close your eyes and remember the wonderful times you spent together, and the moments that captured both your hearts. What a room-brightening smile your father has, and I am sure he is smiling down on you now, and the beautiful family you and Mike have made. May the coming days bring you peace and loving care from your family and friends, and the remembrance that we are all in the Family of God. Take care, Ray

Mike and I befriended each other when we were both freshmen at Roger Bacon High School. Though we didn’t see much of each other after college, I always considered Mike to be a good friend. Saddens meThat he has passed. He was truly one of the good guys.

We love you Butz! You were a mentor, friend and second dad to me my entire life. You were smart, witty and most importantly kind. I could always count on you to make me laugh and to give great advice. Watching you and my dad do the things you did made me the son, husband, father, brother and man I am today. You will always be in my thoughts. You made a life well lived and I will miss you my friend. Mark
