My heart aches. You were an incredible man who will be deeply missed. The smile, the jokes and the bond we had is something that I will cherish forever. I know you are no longer in pain and for that I can find comfort. I just wish we had more day together. I know you will be smiling down on us each and every day. Especially on 9/14 when the Steelers play the Giants.

Make sure you keep smiling my friend and Rest In Peqce.

Love you

Cousin Dan

My brother from another mother. I already miss you but do know you are looking down on us from the heavens above protecting your family and friends like the offensive line has always done for qbs of your beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. You possess the rare gift of lighting up any room you enter with your greater than life personality and never disappoint in touching everyone’s life in a positive way. We are all blessed to know you! A piece of my heart left when you left this earth to live among the Angels.

To Linda, A shining example of commitment and true love. Your love for Joey was recently matched by your care of Joey over the past few years. You are an incredible woman and the true love of a Joey’s life. I look at your relationship with Joey as a testament of what a love story and life long relationship should be.

Each of you have also raised an incredible family that carries the Mikulka tradition of commitment to family, faith and friends while always living, loving and laughing along the way.

Love always ,
James Kennedy SR.
