I had the honor of being part of Mike's care team in the Hope Tower. He was a fighter like no other. I had many wonderful conversations with Mike and Kathy during his visits that I will always cherish. My condolences to Kathy and the Cassidy family. May your family find strength and may you rest in peace. ~Nancy V.

My deepest sympathies to Mike’s wife and his family. It was clear over the years that I knew him that he loved you all immensely. I was fortunate to work with Mike in New Jersey - he was the consummate professional. He cared deeply about his clients and approached his career with PNC with a sense of excellence. As much as he cared about professional success, however, he truly did value his family above everything. He was a good man who will be missed. Claire Stevens

Mike was blessed to have such a loving and caring family around him which gave him more comfort than anyone will ever know even in these past few months. despite my religious affiliation, I do believe there is Sainthood, and Kathy, Tommy, Meaghan and Caitlin are living proof. I hope there is lightweight football and plenty of games to be umpired in heaven

The incredible turnout at your service today is just a very small reminder of how much you are already missed and how many lives you impacted.
