RIP my Brother-In-Law Mike ..
I remember the first day BooBoo introduced you to our friends and family .
You had no fear and didn’t care what anyone thought , because you found true everlasting love with my Sister Arlene , everyone had doubts about the relationship , and didn’t give it a month .. to everyone’s surprise , out of my five sisters including myself , you and BooBoo shared the best marriage , ( the wedding was at the Berkshire, and oh what a wedding party )
You guys had the truest of all love , never left each other’s side , you both complimented each other. I remember the day when Your daughter Michelle was born , oh what a day that was , everything worked out beautiful , you have three grandchildren that adore you and will miss you along with many more family and friends ..
Your in Gods hands now Mike Fly high and keep a watch over us all ..
Love ya and gonna miss ya , ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Cathy Murawski
