I have great memories of uncle Mike. He was the most generous and kind person you could imagine. Always had a nice thing to say. When I read the above text, it reminded me of how well uncle Mike could tell a joke. You didn't know the joke was coming until the punchline came, which was always hilarious. What a great leader in the family, and his offspring carry on the tradition! Note to other family members: Please see the part above about flowers vs. donation to Sloan Kettering.

The world is a little dimmer today, it’s missing a contagious smile, and a very hearty laugh. This is a very tragic loss to a wonderful Liamero Family. I’m grateful for the laughs and jokes we shared over the years. There are no words to ease your family’s pain. But someday we will meet again my friend on the 2Nd Saturday in July at the big table in heaven and share that laughter again with a drink and Cissy can pick the cocktail of the day. God Bless you and your family I know God is enjoying a hearty laugh with you now.
