  • "I knew Mike and Bonnie from their time at St. John the Baptist church in Garden. I remember him as a very sincere guy with a great sense of humor. I also recall working with him collecting papers for recycle supporting St. Mary Magdelene parish in Cooks. We also shared a deep affection for Notre Dame. I will certainly miss this great character. "

  • "Dear Janowski Family, my heart aches for you as you navigate through the loss of Michael. Though I never had the privilege of meeting him personally, from what I have heard and what I have read here, he was a remarkable person. I am deeply regretful that I never had the honor of meeting him. The void left by his passing is undoubtedly immense, and I want you to know that my thoughts and condolences extend to each and every one of you. Tim, though our paths have just recently crossed, please know that my heart goes out to you in particular. Madeline, as you remember your Grandpa and mourn his loss, please know that I stand beside you in spirit. Even though I cannot be there, I'm sending all the strength and love in the world your way. Your Grandfather's legacy lives on through you, your family, and all of the memories you share. To the entire Janowski family, please accept my most sincere condolences. May you find comfort in each other's company as you celebrate his life and legacy."
