  1. Dear family,

    I am deeply saddened by the grief that you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue looking to him when ” he will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.

    love from a stranger,

  2. Descansa en paz , primo.
    Ha sido una triste noticia para todos nosotros.
    Desde el cielo estarás viéndonos junto a tu mami.
    Todos lloramos tu partida.

  3. We are so sad to hear of Mikes passing. Without a doubt he was the smartest person I’ve ever know and kind to everyone. The Fratteroli family will be in our thoughts and prayers! RIP ol friend! You will be missed

  4. My old room mate and fiend Mike,

    You were always fun to be around. I have lots of awesome, fun memories from then (around 1988) and value our chats together. May heavenly peace be with you and mercy and comfort be with your family.

    John J
