Richard, my sympathies to you and family. I never put your name together with your dad. I knew your dad from Little Turtle, he was a fine gentleman. I wish I could stop and pay respect but waiting for my daughter in Baltimore to give birth. God Bless, Joe

The Curran Family, I was shocked to see Mike's obituary in the paper this morning. My sincere condolences to all of you. I worked for Bank One when Mike was at Gahanna (old downtown location) and I was Manager of the Easton Office on Hamilton Road. I always enjoyed Mike's friendship. Nothing fancy, just a rock solid human being with good family values. May he rest in peace!

Sorry for your loss. I did not know Mike well, but appreciated his friendship at Rotary. I belonged to Sunrise, but saw Mike at Rotary Golf League and a few times at Noon Club.

Lucy, we both worked at the Public Library in the late 80's until your retirement. A bit of sunshine behind the circulation desk. My thoughts are with you and your family. Bless you for the years you were able to care for Mike. Joanne Seith
