Merv, Donnie, Marion, Ethel & Family,
So saddened and surprised to hear about Michael. Please accept our condolences and take care of each other.
We are deeply saddened by Michael’s sudden passing. He has been a good friend to the McCabe family for many years. Ben and Roxanne depended on him for their many projects in the yard and gardens. My brother Nate, who also died too soon, enjoyed their time together. Pam and I have looked forward to Michael’s visits, his stories, his good humor, and his hearty laugh. His work ethic was praiseworthy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you honor his life.
We fondly remember our conversation with Michael this June and wish we could be in Nova Scotia to honor him at his service. We send our sympathy and prayers.

Merv Donnie Ethel and Marion and all that knew and loved Michael which includes my family, I am so very sorry for your loss and for the loss of a person that was always there with a smile and a little talk for everyone Dock Cove will never be the same that is for sure. I remember back in the day when my 3 girls were growing up Mike took them under his wing and looked after them sometimes for the good sometimes not so good because they would all get up to no good but it was all in growing up and he would have given his life for them as he was the big brother they never had. Thank you Mike for always being a friend You will be forever missed.
