I have just been advised that Mike’s Father passed away early this morning. He was in his 95th year.


                                Arrangements at Highland Park Cemetery are incomplete at this time, however Mike advises that there will be a viewing only as his father did not want a formal Funeral.                 

                                Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family

 I have now been advised by Mike that there will be a visitation this Wednesday at Highland Park Cemetery from 2:00 to 3:00 PM . Internment to follow.
