  • Mike was one of the nicest men I have ever met. A man among men and always a gentleman. He will truly be missed but I’m so happy he is with his beloved Joan and no longer suffering.

  • Rest in eternal peace, dear Mike. Our days are less bright without sharing a warm hello. Good friends and neighbors these past many years, you and Joan are truly missed.

  • Sending my most sincere sympathies to Michael Jr, Dory and Isabella.
    Mr. Sansone was a class act. He was such an accomplished and intelligent man. I am so glad that I got to know him on a personal level over the past year.
    He always had a smile on his face and that smile would light up the room he entered. Everytime I bumped into him I would say “so nice to see you Mike” ,and he would say “nice to be seen”, and we would both burst out laughing..
    His real pride and joy was his favorite granddaughter Isabella. He would love to tell me all the different stories about her and there wonder relationship. He would burst with pride telling me how smart and amazing she was. He was a man of deep faith and will be missed by all who knew him for many years to come!!! God speed Mr. S, and May you Rest In Peace with you beloved Joan. I am so glad that I had the pleasure to get to know you!
