06.2.2017 - A message from Michael's sister, Debbie Ratner (Brannigan):
"I am completely devastated at the passing of my Brother Michael Brannigan!
He passed away yesterday when his private plane he was flying, crashed in Ventura! I had seen it on news last night and had a knot in my stomach, as that's the airport I know he flys out of, but prayed it was not him!
He leaves behind my beautiful sister in law Tiffany and my 16 year old niece and 11 year old nephew!We are beyond heartbroken and prayers would be very much appreciated!! I Love you forever my sweet Brother💙"

As I'm sure most of you are aware by now, we lost one of our beloved neighbors in a shocking and horrific accident last week. Tiffany, Amelia and Graham would like to extend an invitation for you to join them on Sunday June 11, 2017 @ 4pm in our park for an intimate gathering to celebrate Michaels life. This event is meant for family & neighbors as a casual pot luck get together.
We will have all plates, cups, utensils, napkins. Tables will be set up to put your food items on. Please bring your own chairs as seating is limited.
In addition if you are unable to attend this event there will be a formal memorial service on June 25 th at Santa Paula Airport.
