Mike,
You are still missed, and will never be forgotten...You and your family are in my prayers. I still remember my first days at SP Kingston, when I was fresh out of the Academy. You were one of the senior Troopers who made us new guys feel welcome. I always looked up to you, and I always will. Rest in peace, my brother.....

Mike,
Thank you for your professionalsm and compassion when our
family friend had her accident shortly before May31. I wanted to send Dot Valentine's Day flowers, but maybe she doesn't want them from me. Also, thank you for leaving an
example for the rest of us to live by.

Mike,
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you. So many times I will think of something to tell you or share a new recipe. I still find myself looking at your favorite spots on 28, especially when one of the "new Guys" is on patrol. As many of us say, "you made a left turn into Heaven and GOD has another angel." I miss my protector, but I know you are around me always. Kathy

Mike my friend of many years, you are missed every day. I hope the hills are small and the wind is always at your back in Heaven.

Mike,
Although we never "hung out", I always considered you a friend. You always had class and style as you went about your police duties. Our work together with Cops and Lobsters was very satisfying. I am attending the FBI National Academy. Part of the training is distance running. I wear a shirt with your picture on it at every run.

You are sorely missed by all of us.

Sergeant Timothy McGuire
Ulster County Sheriff's Office
