As the anniversary of Mike’s passing was just a couple of days ago, I just wanted to express my remembrances and let him know that gas is $3.79 at Krogers. Mike is still with us!

buddy,

when i’m at home, i think about you

because that’s where you would call me sometime.

when i’m at the hospital, i think about you, because that’s where you would call me sometime.

when i’m on the golf course, i think about you, because that’s where you would call me sometime.

when i’m on the river in my kayak, i think about you, because that’s where you would call me sometime.

but there is no call today.

and there will be no call tomorrow.

today and tomorrow won’t be quite the same.

Dear Mary and girls:

Frani and I were very saddened to learn of Mike’s death. Mike was my first friend in Williamsport, and I’ll always remember him warmly. His good humor and advice helped me through some challenging times prior to opening our Mall McDonald’s — and for years afterwards. He was a very special guy and his memory remains special.

Hopefully, a belief in an afterlife and sweet memories will help you all through this very difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless you all.

Dear Mary Ann & Family,

I was sorry to read in the Williamsport paper today about Michael. I will never forget my life learning experiences at Elby’s. Mike was a tough boss with a big heart.It’s been almost 25 since I was a Elby’s Waitress. I can remember how Mike gave me confidence to always do a better job. He was a wonderful person, and will be missed. I’m sorry for your loss.

Dear Mary, Stacey, Amanda, and Michelle,

We are all so very sorry to hear of Mike’s passing and our hearts are heavy as we think of you today. Our years in Williamsport were such happy ones for our family, in large part due to the friendship that we shared. Your example of family meant a lot to us when our children were still very young. Mike was a wonderful man and we will always hold his memory in our hearts.

The promise of eternal life helps keep our eye on the cross and on the hope of reuniting in joy and in love.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and in the days ahead.

Love, Bob, Pat Susan and Philip Nase

I was sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. My thoughts and prayers our with your family. My first job was at Elby’s in Muncy twenty eight years ago. I’d get a little nervous when I had to wait on Mike and his family or if we were cleaning and he would show up. I told my kids when they were young clean your rooms like Mr. Boury was coming ….they would just look at my like I lost my mind. I hope he knew how many peoples lives where touch because of him.

I worked for Mike as a server in the Wmspt. restaurant many, many years ago. I was just out of H.S. and not yet ready for college. After two years “in the business” I decided to enroll in college. I gave my notice and Mike teased me by saying that I’d never finish school and that I’d be back for my job. Some may of taken offense to his words, but I knew better. It was his unique way of encouraging me to succeed and prove him wrong which I did. I can still see him strolling through the restaurant proudly toting around a small baby boy whose arm was in a cast. He was his foster child and Mike loved him dearly. He was an inspiring man, quick-witted and sassy! He will be dearly missed by many. My condolences to you all.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Mike was a great guy with a big heart. I worked for him at Elby’s in Muncy up until the time he sold it to Wally Smith. Even though I didn’t know him that well, he left a lasting impression on me. He will be sadly missed

Mary Ann, Stacey, Amanda and Michelle;

I am sadden to see the passing Of Mike. Mike meant alot to me as a young person coming out of college, giving me my real first opportunity in the work place. I have nice memories of our relationship, he was kind and thoughtful behind the sometime hard exterior. I learned how to run a business from Mike that is so valuable to me today. Mike once said to me that if he died ,do not close the business, Mike would want us all to keep the business of life open. I will never forget the mentoring and life lessons Mike gave to me. Through his example, I always knew family came first. Our hearts are heavy today.

With deepest deepest thoughts;

Love Ron and Pat Cioffi

Michael is the father of my newest graduate student at NCSU, Amanda. I only met him just recently. I was complaining about having six cats. On that basis, I think that he thought I was OK. I found him to be friendly, warm and personable and wish that I could have known him better.

Mike was much more than just another patient. He had a freiendly, fun endearing air about him that made everyone instantly like and respect him. I will miss him, his candor, and his wit.

Mike was the best brother a sister could have. I loved hearing him laugh and listening to his dumb jokes.

When things were not going great for me he was always there. Even during his illness he showed great concern for my daughter who is going to Iraq.

He was so proud of his 3 daughter and rightly so because he and Mary did raise 3 wonderful girls. He told me he had a great life and I believed he did.

Everyone I know who knew Mike thought of him as a great guy.

I will miss him but I have so many good memories of him that will keep him in my heart forever.

I love you big brother,

Lynne

My deepest sympathy to the Boury family. Having also been born & raised in the Wheeling area, and having also graduated from Greenbrier Mil Sch it was a long ride between Lewisburg & Wheeling, that we did travel together a few times, I have good memories of spending time with Mike, back in the early 1960’s. Good by, Mike.

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of Mike. I remember finding his size intimidating upon meeting him for the first time but quickly learned his heart and sense of humor were also “super sized”.

Our thoughts & best wishes are with you as you travel thru the grieving and face new routines.
