To the Dranzo Family, My sincere condolences on the passing of Michael. I attended High School with him, and he was a great guy to be around. Always seemed to make you laugh when you seemed down. Mike was a very easy-going person, and hearing of this unfortunate news was shocking. He is suffering no more now, and he will be missed. He will be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you during these tough times.
