A message from Mike Crowley’s family

M8 sees MikeAs many of you know, the LEGO building community lost a leading light earlier this month, when Mike “Count Blockula” Crowley passed away.

The love and sympathy expressed here, on Facebook, Flickr, FBTB, and all of Mike’s other online homes didn’t go unnoticed by Mike’s friends and family, who asked me to pass along this message from Mike’s parents to all of you.

My wife Janina and I wish to pass along our gratitude to the wonderful folks from the Lego Brick community for their outpouring of sympathy to the family at Mike’s passing. We greatly appreciated so many sharing stories and pictures of their memories of Mike at the many conferences he attended. He so loved these times when his health was better and you all made us aware of a side of him that we did not know existed.

Again, thank you all for your kindness, it made a very difficult time for the Crowley family a great deal easier knowing that the Count had so many friends and fans.

God Bless you all,

Paul and Janina Crowley
