  1. Wish I knew Mustafa more than I did. Take care guys

  2. To Milena and family, I was saddened to hear of Mustafa’s passing. Please accept my sincere offer of prayers for all of you. May Mustafa rest in eternal peace in the heavenly presence of our Lord Jesus and our Holy Mother Mary.

  3. Awe, I was saddened to read that Mustafa passed away. I’ll remember his smile when he came to my til at Askew’s Uptown and buying Darby a treat. He was a very nice man and always had the exact change. My sincere sympathy.

  4. Growing up as neighbours to Mike and Milena since the 70’s brings back a lot of happy memories. Mike was a very lovable man and became more like family to us as the years passed. Both Mike and Milena were wonderful friends to my parents John and Maire and also to me. To Milena, John, Harry, Jane and James and families, please know my thoughts are with you at this time. He will be deeply missed..

  5. I first met Mike in 1976 or 77 at Federated. We both started working there at about the same time. I liked him immediately: down to earth, hard-working, friendly. Mike’s qualities were many. I will miss Mustafa and the chats and short visits we would have around town wherever we would run into each other. My thoughts are with you and your family. Mike was truly a wonderful guy.

  6. Dear Milena…please accept our sincere condolences. Remembering our visits at the Shuswap Medical Group Clinic, the Christmas parties, etc. Mustafa was a wonderful man. Take care. Shirley-Ann and Burt Asay

  7. Gerry always enjoyed working with Mike. I remember he always had a smile and greeting whenever we would meet him. He loved his family, especially the grandkids.
