Michael - We will never forget! Shine on you crazy diamond!With Much Love,The Burton Brothers
St. John the Baptist Catholic Church was filled with family and friends united in their love and respect for a great man and just a wonderful human being. Memories were shared that evoked many tears but also SMILES with stories of cherished times spent with him - pictures from the past that helped to ease some of the sorrow, offering a bit of comfort to the grieving. The sun shone brightly on the long procession through the river towns so familiar to Michael throughout his precious life. Perhaps this was God Himself adding a heavenly smile for a life well lived.
Today we celebrated Mass for our friend Michael. So many people were there to honor this wonderful man. The church was filled to capacity! The cars to his resting place was miles long! , Michael will always share a special place in the Lakas Family. May you rest in heavenly peace dear Michael, till we meet again!

Mike, you were bigger than life in many ways. You looked at something and soon you knew what needed to be done. You then would have a wonderful conversion with the participants. As a friend you connected like few can do! We'll miss you greatly!
I am so, so sorry to hear of Mike passing. Every time we ever spoke, he always made me laugh.
So saddened to hear about Mike. He was a great friend to my father and my entire family. He really came through when my sisters and I needed help many years ago. His generosity was above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. He will be missed by many. Deepest sympathies to his family.
Dave and Mary, Kevin and I are so sorry for your loss. Please accept our love and sympathy.
Mary & Dave,I am so sorry for your loss. May God's grace surround you during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Teta Mary, David (Bea), Rosann (Bill and Nicholas)Our hearts are broken and are feeling your pain. Although many miles separateus, we have always found the time (happy or sad) to support each other, for this is what our parents and grandparents taught us - The family bond is strong. I found the following words, which I think explain it all:Our family chain is broken now,And nothing will be the same,But as God calls us one by one,The chain will link again.God has Michael in his arms.He was loved by all and will be missed. Vicnaja Jemu Pamjat! - Eternal Memory!With all our love, The Salony, Stack, Tymus, Halama, & Vislocky, Ochlan Families (from NY and NJ) as well as his family in Litmanova and Jarabina Slovakia (Halama & Salon Families)

Sending my deepest sympathies to the Halama family on Michael's passing. He was such a wonderful person. May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.
Mike and I have been good friends since 6th grade. Mike was one of my heroes. A friend with a kind heart and a gentle soul. Sat. night I was thinking about the DUNE Buggy. All of mikes' old friends will remember that and so many other great, fun times we had together; The giraffe Joe and mike made and trotted through Jerry's with Mike and Joe inside the costume. So many fun times. I have not come to grips that my friend is gone. I'll get there because Mike was one of the people who taught me to live life on life's terms. I will miss you. Your Buddy, Freddy Boy
(sigh). Miguel: My "brother", my lifelong mentor, my confidante...you have left & traveled beyond the door. I will miss you. I will carry your heart...I will carry it in my heart. Love you
I am so very sad and sorry; the world lost a gem beyond description. My favorite cousin and lifelong friend- how did life go by so fast? Wasn't it just yesterday when your whole family came to Ohio for the weekend and we were riding bikes down the street? Who will I take shots with at weddings? Who will tell me the funniest stories in the world? I love you so much! This hole in my heart will never heal, my sorrow will never ease, the pain will never go away. I will pray for you until the day I die. Mary, David & Roseanne...I don't know what you will do without him. I will miss everything about him. I am so very, very sorry. I love you Michael! May God grant you eternal memory and a peaceful repose. Vicnaja Pamjat.
Dave & family, My deepest sympathy to all of you. Mike was a true gentleman and such a great person. It was a pleasure knowing him. He will truly missed!
I am deeply saddened by Michael's passing. He was a good friend with a big heart! I always enjoyed talking with him and listening to his stories! Nobody could tell a story or carry on a conversation like Michael! I could talk with him for hours! He gave great advice, had some unique ideas and was always the voice of reason. He will be deeply missed. My heartfelt sympathies go out to Mary (Mom), David, Bea, Rosann (Zutzs), Bill & Nicholas. You all are in my prayers. Love, B.J.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Michael's passing. I have some great memories of our families going on summer vacations together and how Michael was the "Leader" of our group, and how he always made things very interesting. I am sure he will be doing the same thing in heaven with all of our loved ones. He will never be forgotten. Our prayers go out to Mary, David, Roseanne and her family. You are ALL in our thoughts and prayers. Love Lisa (Gazo) Galasso and Family
