To Connie and Family - I was a student at St Mary’s, Ilchester when Mike was the novice master in 1970-71. I feel grateful that he was placed on my life’s path as he greatly helped me to think honestly and seriously about the vocation to the priesthood that I was pursuing. I subsequently left the seminary in 1973 and have enjoyed a full life as a married man with a wonderful wife, three daughters, solid sons-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. I know he helped many of us who were in the seminary as well as others when he worked as a counselor. He was a good man and I know that God will reward him for a full life well lived. May our Lord be near you all in the days ahead as you adjust to life w/o Mike’s physical presence. Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let Your perpetual light shine on him. May you rest in peace, Mike. Jim Seeberger, Parkton, MD
