|God Bless You Mickey, You were always known as the friendly kid from Emmettsburg, when you came to Lake City and visited your uncle Fr. James Fandel at Saint Mary's. It was my good fortune to serve several Masses with you in our early teen years.|

|My Father and I wish to pay our respectful and sincere condolences to all who had the joy and privilige to have known Mickey, we met during a trip from Ireland to Emmetsburg and had the warmest "cead mile failte" (a hundred thousand welcomes) from this Kind and gentle man. We often talked of him fondly and especially after his recent illness. He will be missed on both sides of the Atlantic. Slan agus Beannach Mickey a Cairde.

|God bless this Irishman. Emmetsburg has truly lost its most prominent flag bearer. In life, there are so few of us who matter in the larger scope of things; Mickey was one of those who did. God bless Mickey Conlon.|

|I had always known Mickey through the St. Pats pagent, but really got to appreciate what a kind, thoughtful man he was after my daughter, Laura, spent many Saturday afternoons with her "chaperone" as Miss Shamrock for a year. We both appreciated so much the way Laura was made to feel special during these big days! Thank you Mickey!!

|Most people think of St. Patricks Day when they think of Mick Conlon but our family would immediately think Christmas. When kids would come to school after Christmas and try to tell us there was no Santa we knew better because we say him came through our door every Christmas Eve with his big black garbage sack full of toys for us kids and even once we found out it was Mick we still wanted him to come because it was not the same. Every confirmation, graduation, and wedding he would sign the card Santa! I can still hear that unforgettable Ho, Ho, Ho! Mick gave us Christmas memories that we talk about every year and will continue through our lives. Knowing that we have our Santa looking over us in Heaven is a great feeling. |

|The fighting Irish has lost a true gentleman and a loyal friend. I remember the time he was Santa Claus for a McNally family reunion. Noone could have done it better. He will be missed.|

|Sorry to hear of Mickey's passing and I'm sure Emmersburg will miss him always but especially during St. Pats day celebrations.
I went to ECHS and graduated with Mickey-small class but good classmates.

|May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

|To The Conlon Family -
Emmetsburg truly lost one of its finest with the loss of Mickey. When I think about Mickey over the years I realize how much he gave to others and to his community. First knowing him as a family friend and fellow Great Oaker. Then spending time with him when him and Mom worked at the SO. When I taught at the Catholic School he volunteered his time to teach the kids how to be altar servers. And, of course, his true love -- St. Pat's. Working with him was always such a joy. He always had a way with the youg ladies - the queens and my Little Irish Dancers loved Mickey! He truly loved everything about St. Pat's, his community, and helping out wherever he could. The loss that we all feel is tremendous. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you try to accept this loss. We know that we have a special "leprechaun" watching over us.|
