    My heartfelt sympathy to each one of Michael’s family. I didn’t know Michael as an adult but I have fond memories of hanging out with him and Joanne MacDonald when we were teenagers. Going to dances at “The Centre” and for Saratogas and cokes at Dick’s. He was kind and fun and cute of course. I suspect that never changed. Mr. Connolly, as a parent who has had a child die I know the torture of that. Being the second child is not going to make it easier so I wish you strength and grace. I don’t have to tell all of you how wonderful Michael is because you know that more than I. Blessings to all. Colleen
