Sorry to read of Michael's passing. His father and my dad (Arthur Tucker) were cousins. After Tom's passing my father corresponded with Mike. After my dad passed away my sister, Margaret corresponded with him. She passed away in January 2016 and I wondered about Michael. Wilmington, DE is our home

I always enjoyed our conversations when Mike would come into the pharmacy. I am glad he is free of the pain and suffering he endured for so long and that he can be reunited with Marlene after almost 6 years apart.
