Hi i knew John Michael at Church. He became my Godfather and a neighbor and a friend. Like Joe S. We shared sport together and Joe played a few pranks but all were great. John M. Lived like me a good walk from a country school and he went to Uni like Dave and Lee but we kept touch over distance here in Wodonga Australia. My feelings for all and JM was many things expressed including brave with the patience of Jesu Job Jos and Mary and acceptance of God Bl. Trinity provides. I miss his cheery letters but feel him praying me on like St Paul said to Ephesians. I hope as Catholic to meet him. He was a good man for all to see... for all seasons and all. C U JOHN MICHAEL a true Tiger for any edit etc.

To me there have only been 5 great men in this world

My father
My grandfather
My father in law
My cousin Vincent
My uncle mike

None of the men where/are perfect but I have no problem hoisting them up on pedestals and declaring them the five best men that are/have been in this world

Three of them have left this world and the world has gotten a bit darker because of it. Their words/deeds/ and legacy carry on in each of us

Words cannot express my love for the three that have left us and I hope the two that are still here, know my love for them.

If I can live my life anywhere close to the five of these men then i know I've done a good job.

I love you dad and papa, please guide uncle mike. Your journeys are complete, rest well and forever be at peace.

Dear Diane and family,

We are going to miss Mike’s pleasant demeanor, his intelligent mind, his gift for making interesting conversation, and his friendship over so many years starting when our kids were at Franklin School. We valued that he shared his difficult health journey with us, and he was a great support to us as we, too, discussed our health issues with him. We will miss him at our evening dinner dates, but we hope that you, Diane, will continue to join us.

Mike was a lucky man. He was well loved.

You all take care,

Dear Diane and Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have been blessed to know how wonderful all of my cousins are and were. Although it has been many, many years, we have had updates at our Brown reunion about our family who is spread far and wide. I am so sorry for your loss, Larry, Curly and Moe were a pretty special bunch.

Dear Diane and Family,

I met Mike in Sept 1969 at Western University - he was beacon of good in a sea of exciting confusion. His querky smile and sense of humour was his forte. He and his entire family made me feel loved and guided me through. I owe you all so much. Mike will be missed by all who knew him. All our best wishes goes out to you.

Dear Diane and Family,

Mike and I have been friends since the 8th grade and while it was not until a few years ago that we began meeting in person, we talked every Christmas for a great number of years. He was loved by my family and I will always remember our visits in Myrtle Beach.

Dear Diane, Vince, Chris and Grandchildren:

My mother coined the term Curly, Larry, and Moe for us three Daugharty Boys. There were so many great memories of us growing up, both in Streetsville but also in those teen years in London Ontario and St. Thomas with our grandparents and cousins. Since 2002 and our mother's passing, we met for quite a few years in Mackinaw which was the half way point. We continued to grow in our brotherhood. I will miss Mike on so many levels. I know he will now have the 'peace that passeth all understanding'.

Dear Diane & Family,

I am so sorry for your recent loss. Mike was one of the strongest people I have ever met. He has been battling health issues for many years but he never let that battle get in the way of time with others. I will always remember Mike's contagious smile and "fatherly talks" about life. Prayers continue for you and your family to heal and to follow in Mike's footsteps by living each day to the fullest.

In Deepest Sympathy,
Theresa Dachel
