Mike, I thought of you today. I remember when we went to lunch at Miller Park and we talked about all of the baseball stadiums that you visited. I remember we had a great meeting about the ABB program. Miss you. Eric Anderson, Gallagher Bassett Services

Michael, I remember the moment I heard that you had been taken from this world and I felt such an ache in my heart. You had so much to offer to everyone whose life you touched. In such a gentle way you made a huge impact. You were so kind-hearted and are sadly missed. God Bless you and your family!

As I wait for the S's to be announced today I think of you and how dear you were to me and everyone at Travelers. I was a mother figure to your little groupy but you were always my favorite. You were a blessing to know and so very special. I pray for your family to find strength knowing how much they love you. I know you are a President Angel by know and I feel comfortable about that. May you rest in peace and tranquility Estelle Vester

I remember as childhood friends we were the only 2 families in the neighborhood that had swimming pools. All the kids in the neighborhood would spend hot summer days going back and forth between pools to cool down and have fun. The Sorresse family would always make you feel welcome and have plenty of towels ready. Love to Joanne, Nick, Lenny, Mom, Dad and especially Michael....we miss you and we will NEVER EVER FORGET.....God bless and be well my friends!!

Unbelievable that it's been 10 years already. Although we never met face to face, we spoke almost every day in the course of our work. I miss that, and I still think of you oh so often. Until we do meet, I wish you peace Mike.

I first met Michael fresh out of college working at Travelers. It has taken me 10 years to do this. Michael I know heaven is filled with many people close to my heart, I am sure they welcomed you with honor. You were one of the sweetest guys I knew. You must of made your parents so proud of the man you became. We lost touch after Travelers, but the memories 'the crew' had will last a life time. Until we meet again. Much Love

I can not believe that it ten years since you were taken from our world. I just wanted you to know that when we moved to Florida, I found photos of you with the puppy I got and you were there playing with him. Quincey has since passed and I am sure that if you call his name, he will come and play with you again. We miss you.

I worked with Mike on the ABB account. We always had a great at the Partnership Meetings. I had the good fortune to work with Mike for a couple of years. He was a great claims guy, but even a better person who always spoke of his family!!

Mike; I always get a little sad on the 11th when I think of you. But thinking of the times we had with our friends soon puts a smile on my face. I have been fortunate to remain close with eyeryone, and we will never forget you. You were a great guy to work with, but you were an even better friend. God bless you, Mike Bob Beyer

Mike, Hard to believe it's been six years. You remain in my thoughts and prayers, and I think of you every time I do a 'good deed'. Your optimism and kindness was not lost, it lives on in everyone who was blessed to know you in life.

Michael We can't believe that 6 years has gone by. We had a mass for you today and Maria did the first reading. She did so good you would have been so proud of her. I miss you so much, we all do. You will be in our hearts forever. We will never forget. Love you a lot your loving family.

Mike, I can't believe it has been 5 years. What a sad day for everyone. It feels like yesterday since all the shore trips and happy hours. What good times. I especially remember the lunches in NYC where we just sat and chatted about life. We were lucky to have you for as long as we did. You know the saying 'Better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all'. You were such a sweet soul and a good heart. You are surely missed and may god bless and take care of you. We miss you Mike! Lots of love, Theresa and Troy

Michael, i always looked forward to meeting with you and lenny after work to look at houses together. there was always a laugh. I enjoyed helping you and Catherine find the house in Morris Plains. You were a beautiful person and an incredbile force. Anyone who spent a moment near you came away with that. I will forever remember your kind soul. love brett kaffee

Mike It is still hard to believe that you are no longer with us. Linda and I miss you dearly and we think of you all the time. It has been a slow and painful process these past two years getting used to life without you. Whenever I have an extra ticket to a sporting event, car show, or invite friends over to the house, I still think of you and then get the painful reminder that you are not around anymore. Bailey is becoming a beautiful little girl and I wish so much that you could have met Kevin. You were a special person. Our children will know who you were and how you lived your life so that they can emulate you. We will never forget you. Love Pete, Linda, Bailey and Kevin.

Michael, As one of your classmates from WPHS '85, I was terribly saddened to hear that you had died 9/11/2001. Though I live in Colorado now, I happened to be visiting my dad in NJ that day. I went back to the WTC site on 9/11/02 to hear your name read aloud, in person. I haven't stayed in touch with many people from WPHS, which I regret. Today, our classmate Bev Gill (Dickinson) found me on the internet - she is the first person from our class I've talked to since 9/11/01. She found me because I mentioned your name on my web site. Thank you for connecting me back to our class. I am so sorry you are gone. You will not be forgotten, and neither will Eric Alexander and any others from our class who are no longer here.

Love you always Sammy, Marina, lisa and sam. ps: i will always wear your pin b/c it means that u r right next to me giving me advice on what i should do and don't do. thanks for everything.

Michael, We were friends through our 20's (working and shore houses together)...Its unbelievable to think you are no longer here. I remember a time when we lost touch for a year and I finally moved out on my own...one day a package came in my mailbox from you out of the blue. It was a housewarming gift wishing me 'happy cooking in my new place'. That's the kind of guy you were - warm, caring and kind. I only wish and pray my daughters meet someone as wonderful as you in their lifetime. I pray often for your wife and your family. You will be missed dearly.

I lived with Mike for about a year and a half in Morristown, NJ. I was just out of college and my brother and a few of his friends rented a house together, Mike being one of the guys. He quickly became a good friend. He always went out of his way to do something nice or get a laugh out of me whenever I was down. When we went out, he would keep an eye on me and when he knew I was tight on cash, he was the first to spot me a couple of bucks or buy me a beer. We lost touch as our lives moved in different directions, but I think of his kindness often and I try to emulate his opptimism as I progress through life. Thanks, Mike...I still owe you a beer.

Michael, I will always remember what wonderful boys your mother and father had, such gentle, respectable and loving children. I always think of you and what your family is going through. I visited Ground Zero on June 1st it was my mother's birthday and she wanted to vist the site. We had a special police escort, when I told the policewoman it was my mothers birthday,the policewoman (Kerri Hyland) 5 years on the job, she was the sweetest person I have ever met. She singled us out over hundreds of people there. Maybe you made the miracle happen for us. God Bless you Michael and I know the lord is taking good care of you. I am so sorry I missed your wedding.

In Loving Memory Of Our Uncle Mike. We are still too young to understand why this had to happen and we probably never will. We miss you so much, but we know you are watching over us and you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thanks for being such a great uncle. We miss your 'tickles' and your big hugs and kisses too. Uncle Mike, you would be so proud of how good I am swimming now. I know you would be saying, 'Way to go peanut!'. You are truly a hero in our eyes and you are a part of us forever! We love you and miss you very much. Hugs and Kisses Amanda & Michael XXXOOOXXXOOO

I worked with Mike at the Travelers in Morris Plains, NJ many years ago. While we went our own ways, we stayed in touch a few times each year. The last time we spoke was just 2 weeks before 9/11. We always had fun and he was great to bounce ideas off of and see what 'new product' Marsh had that I could use as a Risk Manager. The day I had to delete his name from my Outlook was one of the saddest days I can recall. I miss Mike. Paul Fox
