Mike was one of the nicest kids. We were fairly good friends in high school, but like so many, we lost touch after we graduated.

It came as a shock when I heard he was sick and that he wasn't doing well. I was out of town when he passed and unfortunately didn't find out until weeks later. I felt terrible that I had missed his funeral and couldn't pay my respects.

The last time I saw Mike was at our 5th year reunion (I think). To the best of my knowledge he got sick shortly thereafter, but I'm not sure of the exact year that he died. If anyone can supply any info to post in Mike's memory, it would be appreciated.

I still think of Mike and miss him. We both went to IUP along with Debbie and a handful of others from our class so I saw them both there but than lost touch after the 2nd or 3rd year of college. Mike was my partner in Co-ed Cheerleading so I got to know him more the last year or two of highschool. I was caught off guard with his death as well and didn't get to say good bye or share any stories with his parents like I would have liked. Mike was a wonderful person and I was glad I got to be a little part of his high school and college life and Debbie's. We'll never forget you.

Thanks to Deb Ranieri (Tate) for the information about Mike. If anyone has any more, it would still be greatly appreciated.

I met Mike when I was four and his dad had brought the boys along to visit my dad at our home. He was a quiet, gentle boy and such a beautiful man! When he died, I was in Florida working at Disney World and didn't find out until my grandmother saw it in the paper and called me. I was devastated when I realized how many things we did in school over the years, and I never told him how much he meant to me as a friend. He was in most of my classes, homeroom, and general life, and I never appreciated him enough. I sat with him at lunch all through 8th grade, and found so many paper hearts from him for valentine's days and candy cane days in high school, and I was even his CPR partner in Health class! I have never taken anyone else for granted ever since his death. I was so thrilled when he and Debi were engaged, and wanted them to have a wonderful life together. I hope his parents realize how important he was to everyone.
