My sincerest condolences to Aunt Betty and the family. Mick was one in a million, such a fun person to be around. He was two years older than me so he was more like a cousin than my uncle. But he never let me forget he was UNCLE Mick. I loved him dearly. God Speed, Mick. I can just imagine the talk fest that's going on up there with all the "cholly's", your sisters and Grandma.
