So sorry to read the obituary of a cousin, and so sorry that there have been so many years between us. I am the granddaughter of Flora Beane-Janssens and I remember Great Aunt Margaret well. Sending my prayers and love to a dear cousin and greetings to the rest of my family.

So very sorry to learn about the passing of a dedicated patriot and flying mate from 50 years ago at the 30th MAS, McGuire AFB, NJ. May the surviving families be comforted that Mike has lived a full life of service to his faith in the Lord of us all, his family and dedication to service of his country. He has left a legacy that is a model to all who knew Mike. Rest in Peace my friend. - Chris Beiler, Ridgeville, SC

Please accept correction to my previous condolence...replace reference of Mike, instead to Richard (Dick).
