Michael Patrick Furlong

Mike is one of the greatest guys I have ever known. I worked with him and I've known him for the past 11 years. I still can't believe he's gone. This photo from his obituary is exactly how I remember him. We miss you Mike.

The text below is from his obituary at Here's a link to his Guest Book
