  1. We can’t begin to imagine what you are feeling, but please let us share our heartfelt condolences. And just a little while all of the pain and sorrow that we feel from the death of our loved ones will cease and be replaced with joy, because the former things have passed away. With caring thoughts.

  2. Ann and Don VanAltens

    Don and I are so sad to hear of Mike’s passing. He was a super guy and we enjoyed our family’s friendship at Sunset Apartments. He will be truly missed. Our prayers for Patty, Corrie and Chris and their families.

  3. Janet D. Morgan, M.D.

    My prayers are with the family. I shall never forget Mike; he was a mentor and partner for many years. He was an exemplary clinician, but what I most admired was his indefatigable loyalty to Patty and to his family. He was a gentleman and a gentle man. His spirit will live on forever…

  4. Dr. Sheahan (Mike) was the best doctor I ever had – or ever will have. I missed him when he retired and now, with his death, I will miss him even more. I was with him throughout almost his entire practice and have some very funny memories of him. My thoughts are with you at this time.

  5. Shirley A. Hemminger

    I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Sheehan at UH for many years. As a nurse, I could always see that he was a caring and devoted caregiver for his patients. My deepest sympathies to all of his family.

  6. Harry and Kate Greenfield

    40 years ago our family needed an internist. My wife’s cousin, a nurse recommended Mike. My wife and I were patients of his until he retired about 11 years ago. He was the litmus test we used when evaluating any other physician. We truly loved being his patient. He was the best. We we miss him as our doctor. Our condolences to his family.

  7. Jan and Frank Gabbert

    Remembering Dr. Sheahan with fondness during our association as members of the South Euclid United Methodist Church. Our thoughts of deepest sympathy are with his family at this time.

  8. Ron and Carole Pettay

    I learned of Mike’s passing on Saturday and was shocked and deeply saddened. Mike and I were the best of friends in high school. We shared many, many good times and adventures. I was proud of his many accomplishments and success as a Doctor. Mike always seemed to have a plan and he worked it well. I will always remember him.

  9. Mike was my best friend. He was the best man. Literally. I was the best man at his wedding in 1966 and he was the best man at my and Linda’s Wedding in 1966. I loved him and will miss him. Condolences to Pat and family.
