Condolences to the whole McElfresh family. I grew up in Philly & raised in "Normandy".
I was childhood friends with Mike's younger sister Diane. I remember their very nice parents and often wondered how the family was after moving away.
May good memories comfort all of you at this sad time.
Diane, I send friendly Philly (((hugs))) to you.

Praying for Mike and his family. Mike and I grew up in Philly, in a small neighborhood “Normandy” we shared good times together, played basketball, football, and hunted together in the nearby farms for pheasant and small game. I lost touch with him after he moved from Philly, but I’ll never forget his good natured ways. Rest In Peace Mike. 🙏 Don Scott
