Michael, I'll miss your phone calls for every special occasion and your hardy laughter. I told you whenever you're in NJ stop in and I'll make baked ziti and an apple pie. We have so many wonderful memories of family gatherings. God rest your soul. We will always love you and Maria. Peace, Aunt Ann

Michael was a friendly face that will be greatly missed here at Harpoon Harry's. We truely enjoyed his humor and looked forward to his visiting us on Saturday. He loved giving our Tiki bartender my husband a hard time and always ask me if I could find better help. He was a great guy may he rest in peace.

Although no words can really help just now. It is all the little things that we will always remember, the quiet nights together, the smiles, the laughter, good food, the happy times the four of us shared through the years. And although it may seem hard to us right now, it will be all those memories of these special times spent tohether that will help push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. You and Maria will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Love Susan & John Marto

God's ways are mysterious! All we can do is accepting his decisions and carry gracefully the burden. My thoughts are with the Russo children.

I will miss your 9 am walks. I really wish I had known how you felt after losing Maria. I can't help but think that I could have helped steer a different course. Now you are reunited with Maria in heaven. God bless.

So many things I want to say, yet no words seem to come to me. Uncle Micky, Aunt Francis, Jimmy and Michael were always special to me. I can still remember the family get togethers at their home in Clifton when we were kids. A long table in the basement where Aunt Francis would serve the macaroni, meatballs, and you name it. The meals were wonderful. After dinner, she would clear the table and all the adults would play cards, tell embarrising stories about each other and constantly rib each other. We were that kind of a family. Michael always had that humor and I can still hear his laugh. He was special. As we became older Aunt Francis would always say to Michael, "When you gonna find a nice girl and get married". Michael would always reply "Bite your tounge Mom". Well Michael found that nice girl in Maria and come Sundays I'll know where to find Mike. He'll be eating macaroni and playing cards with Maria and the rest of the family. I'll miss you Mike.

Mike always had a smile, a quip, a kindness to bestow. My fondest memories are our bantering conversations and his witticisms. He teased others with laughter in his voice and goodness in his heart. He and your Mom together always. Michael and Danielle, find strength in each other, your family and friends. When you need it most, we are all there for you - physically, emotionally, from afar. Lean on others to help you find your way through this darkness - there is always light. I'm sending tons of love and hugs to you both. Val

Dear Uncle Mike, I already miss your laugh. I know you were not my uncle by blood, but in my heart, you will always be family. Rest in Peace, I love you. ~ Jennifer
