To the family--I was so surprised to hear about Mike. I've been out of town for almost 4 years now but I always ran into him around town and we'd chat to keep up on what was happening. My best to all of you, we were all kids together growing up in the neighborhood. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My heart breaks for Michael's family. I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a wonderful guy, always smiling and always gave me a big hug and kiss on the cheek whenever he saw me. Mike, you will be missed and I hope you knew that you were loved by so many. Fly with the Angels and Rock the Heavens my friend.

I am so very sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He was a kind and gentle soul with a wonderful sense of humor. I am so happy that we were able to recently reconnect. I admired how strong and optimistic he was! The world is a little less bright with his passing. Love and light to all of his family and friends.

Michael was a sweet boy and lovely man with wonderful family and friends. Our heartfelt sympathy to all who know and love him, especially the other Failla's I grew up with- Mrs Failla, Jane and Don, and our dearest Laura. It was 'sunshine on a cloudy day' to see all of you and your beautiful families last year at Paul's services. May it comfort you all to know that he is with others you have loved and lost- and that you will all be together again one day. Love and prayers.

To Jane

One of my favorite memories was in high school. Michael was sitting behind me in class and he noticed that my moles were in the shape of the Liberty Bell, crack and all. And he was right!!!! He was genuinely kind, loving, great sense of humor and a gentle soul. I will keep Michael and his family in my thoughts and prayers.
