Dear Kathleen, Pat, Brian, Kimberly and family,
We are so very sorry to hear the sad news about Michael.
We will always remember our wonderful holiday in Poughkeepsie when Michael arranged for all of us to go
on a picnic by the lake. Everyone enjoyed it immensely.
Michael made us feel so welcome with his lovely smile and great sense of fun.

We know Michael's Dad and brother Stephen and his aunts and uncles, who have gone to their rest before him,
will be there to greet him and welcome him home.
May he be at peace.

You are in our thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.

With all our love.

Annette and Neil Wallace
