Oh my word. I am so sorry to learn of this. The McNamara family has my heartfelt prayers and deepest condolences. Mickey was a wonderful addition to my growing up years in SH. Always with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. He will be dearly missed.

Michael Mickey McNamara; a friend, a classmate and an all around good guy. We often played one on one basketball in school and also down @ the barn in Water Mill I'm sadden by this loss; but thankful for the memories and to have known him. I pray his soul to be received in peace as he has transitioned to be with his maker.
