    Dearest Janet and Family,
    We are so saddened by Mike’s passing.
    He was such a great guy and we had so many years of laughter together in Revere Youth hockey!
    He is with Tami now and we can only imagine how excited she was to see him again.
    With your amazing family by your side, you will face this tragedy together and make it through as you always do.
    Sometimes life just isn’t fair to some of the nicest, kindest people. You and you’re family have endured enough pain to last a lifetime. Sending you love and prayers and lots of hugs to get you through this most difficult time.
    Patti & Paul
