    I’m so sorry. I remember my mom taking us to visit him in Rhode Island. She and Mickey were always close.

    Your war is over now, Mickey. Enjoy the peace.

    My deepest sympathy for the loos of my cousin Mickey. I am just now finding out of his death and very surprised. We were close until he went in the military and when he got out, I went into the military, and so with my 26 years in the military, most of it stationed overseas, we lost contact. His Mom was my Grandmother’s sister and as youngsters, I was 2 years younger, we used to visit weekends. Sorry for his loss.
