Dearest Sharon and family. Loss of a great one. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

M. Terry Ashcroft - June 4, 2019

Mike was one of our model railroading regulars. His passion for the hobby and his attention to detail inspired the rest of us to push ourselves to new limits. He has left is far too early. We will miss him greatly! I can only hope that you, his family, may get some degree of comfort knowing that he has left each of us better for having known him.”

Our sincere condolences and sympathy to Rose, Tom and Sharon and the Sonosky family. It is most difficult to see the passing of my friend Mike. I remember the great times at his family cottage (especially of the launching or not of his speed boat). Mike, we certainly had some fun times with our pals Gen and Gordy. Pam and I are most grateful Mike was gracious enough to accept our invitation to be an usher at our wedding. Thank you Mike for the time you shared with us.Peace be with you Mike and your family.
