Dear Judy and The O’Shaughnessy Family,

As you already know, Mike was such a cool, mild-mannered guy, and I was glad to grow up close to him and his family, living on the same street. I’m really glad to have known him and his whole family. He will be missed by everyone he has touched throughout his short lifetime.

I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
