Mary, Jeannie and I are so sorry to hear of Mickey's passing. We have missed the Sunday morning greeting and sincere smile that was typical of Mickey each Sunday. Our living in South Carolina has been bitter sweet. We miss seeing our church family at Maranatha and yet we have been blessed with a new Church Family here in Myrtle Beach.

We are so sorry we are not able to support you at this most difficult time. Please know you and the entire family are in our Thoughts and Prayers. May you be comforted in God's promises that He will never leave you and in knowing Mickey is in the presence of our Loving God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Dear Carrigan family and loved ones of Mickey. I met Mickey in 2006 on the softball field and for about 5 or 6 years I played with him on a few different teams at Holding Point our home field and travelled with him to Binghamton and Syracuse. He was a fabulous team mate and I enjoyed every moment playing with him.
He was always positive and encouraging. More importantly it was a pleasure getting to know him as an individual, we talked about our conviction quite often and offered prayers together before games and understood each others service to God and his Son. He was a great man who will be missed. I thank God that I was allowed to know him!

My sympathy extends to the family and friends of Mickey. I (We) will miss him at the Chemung County Family Fitness Center where I shared playing pickle ball and talking to him. He was tall like a tree and had a wing span like an eagle, a kind demeanor, with an easy smile.

I worked with Mickey at P&C in 1970-71 and I remember his humor and the kindness he gave his co-workers. Being a few years younger I looked to Mickey for guidance and admired his service to our country. In 1973 I bought Mickey's 1973 Z-28 camaro which I enjoyed but couldn't afford. These memories stay with me and I truly hope in some small way it comforts Mickey's family during this difficult time. Sincerely, Michael Kohberger

My heart felt condolences to Mickey's family. He was a kind and caring man who loved his family, siblings and nephews much. But more important he loved the Lord Jesus. I pray Sam and his family will experience that peace that defies understanding.

So sorry of the passing of Mickey. Went to school with Mickey and had the pleasure of meeting up with him at the Horseheads Legion a couple of years ago. Prayers of comfort to the family.

Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your dear family member, Mickey. I knew him way back in our high school days at Odessa-Montour. He was as year ahead of me, but I knew him from some classes and watching him on the basketball team. In those days almost all of us went to Vietnam, hopefully he came back ok. Best wished to Mickey's family and friends. God speed.
