We are so very grateful for the part that Father Michsel played in our lives and especially in Barbara and Donald Hewitts' lives as well. That goes back to the time when Father Michael was residing at the parish in Burlington, New Jersey. Father Michael was a very large inspiration to the both of us. Amy learned more about the Catholic faith after we married because she spent so much time with Father Michael and he and her had many many faithful times in company and prayer and they often celebrated mass together in his home. He brought her so much closer to God than she had ever been in her life which still remains today. We know too that he very much enjoyed all of the many many times that we spent together and our different travels. Yes, their was always a rosary said as we traveled. He will be very missed by both of us. One of the most gracious and also a great humorous side to him as well. Very genuine and will be greatly missed. Thank you to your family for allowing us the time that you did for so many years that we did get to spend the time with him that we did. For that, we will be forever grateful. Our prayers to all of you as you heal from losing one that each and every one of you so dearly loved.
God Bless all of you.
Konrad and Amy Hewitt
Michael’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
The staff of MacFadden Funeral Home extend our deepest condolences to you and your family on the passing of your loved one. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy for your loss. May our thoughts and prayers provide comfort for your family during this difficult time.
