One evening Stephen Reilly attended a Miraculous Medal Service at Christ the King Church with Michael and I, afterwards Michael said to me, "come into town with Stephen and me." I said "I've no money for the bus." He said he would pay. We go upstairs on the bus. When the conductor came up for the money Michael refused to pay. The conductor made me get off the bus and I had to walk home. Michael and Stephen killed themselves laughing. Slean leat Michael, Cait Ni Murchada

As small children and new immigrants to America, our Uncle Michael played an important part in our lives. My deepest sympathy to his children and his sisters. Attached is a photo I found of Michael at Half Moon Bay with pals Phil Hussey and Dennis O'Leary; taken 1970. Sincerely, Catherine Green
