We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Mike was loved and respected by all who knew him. He was our friend and medical advisor when he had the T & C Pharmacy. He almost always came down and discussed any new meds we got. He truly cared for his customers. Dennis and Kay Baughman

Mike and I would both light candles at the 4:30 Mass at Our Lady of Fatima. He always had kind words and a pat on the shoulder while were at the altar together. I will miss his presence and wish I could have known him better. Rest in Peach dear friend.

Mr. Mike was my best friend’s Dad who owned a neighborhood pharmacy. It was a hub of activity for the Town & Country subdivision. Most days I showed up there to try and pull Mark out of there from doing chores like stocking, cleaning and making home deliveries. Instead, I usually got pulled into doing those chores with Mark. Mr. Mike would tell us that we could probably be done with the work twice as fast that way. He would always make it worth our while though with a free Coke, some candy, lots of jokes and maybe even toss us the keys to the ‘69 Cutlass as Mark, myself and Mr. Mike we’re probably the only admirers of that muscle car in the neighborhood. But really, I pitched in to help because I enjoyed his company. Mr. Mike was always available, genuinely interested, and ready to dispense with some advice about something he was thinking about earlier with you in mind. And the stories and jokes were endless. I still use some of his Dad jokes to this day on my girls and they get incredible eye rolls. He was a great role model to have around in Town & Country as a person who, like Mark and I spoke about this past week, was a blue collar self-made businessman who made everything possible for his family and community. And he did it with a smile and a lot of jokes. Mr. Mike was one of a kind and while I’m deeply sad for his passing, I’m very grateful that he was in my life. Mrs. Napoli, Mary, Matt, Michael, Mark and Wendy, while other family events are keeping me afar, my condolences are with you today. He will be missed.

Shirley, Mark, Matthew and Mary, I cant tell you how sad I was to hear of my darling cousins death. He was one of the sweetest, most generous men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, much less being related to. I will truly miss his smile and the love he always seemed to have for all who knew him. I won't be at his funeral but I will hold him dear in my heart. Much Love, Charlene

Mike was a neighbor & dear friend to my whole family. Many years later he was so helpful to me as a Hospice Nurse when he worked at Aaron’s. It was so great to spend time with him again. He was one of a kind & will be greatly missed. ❤️❤️❤️

Dear Napoli Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. As Mr. Napoli closed his eyes in death and opened them in Heaven, I know he heard the joyful words, Well done good and faithful servant. I have such fond memories of visiting the pharmacy with my cousins where Mr. Napoli always greeted us with such warmth and always had our favorite candy during the summer. More than once my mom called him to ask for advice on how to handle some odd medical issue; he was our family pharmacist even though we lived in the next state. May God hold you all closely as you grieve his homegoing. What a joy is ours that we will be united for all of eternity with our loved ones. Holding you close in prayer in these days. Much love, Julie Aipperspach Anderson

Mike was definitely a good man and a great pharmacist. He was a member of the 5th District Pharmacy Association and many of us knew Mike a long time as a colleague and friend. He always seemed to be in a good mood and sported his trademark smile. He will definitely be missed and he was well loved by his friends.
Bobby Bentz left a message on May 19, 2021:
I met Mike during the Great Flood of 1991. When he saw my men and the Caterpillar tractors unloaded at his pharmacy he was awed. I told him we were going to turn the water around and we did. We became very close from then on. Thankful is not enough to describe what Mike was. If every person in our troubled world had Mike’s attitude, this world would be a great place. Christ was all over Mike.
Linda Awtrey left a message on May 19, 2021:
Mr. Mike is what my children called him. He was a wonderful man. He was my pharmacist when I was young mother and until his retirement. I haven’t seen him in many years but I have so many wonderful memories. My condolences to his precious family. He loved you! Rest well Mike.❤️ Linda, Richard, Rich and Meredith Awtrey

Shirley: So sad to hear of Mike's passing. I had to do some figuring and its only a few months short of 60 years that I have known Mike. He and I worked many times together at St Francis. Everyone loved him including me. He and I went to a Saints game and his cousin Baby Matassa talked us into sitting with him in some box seats. I thought I was in the movie The Godfather. Sitting just below us was Carlos Marcello . The bus ride from Baby's was very interesting. Karen and I pray for you and your family for peace comfort. Really loved that guy.

Stephanie Heller Jones left a message on May 19, 2021:
Mr. Mike was such a generous man. When I would go into the pharmacy with my mom, I always asked her to buy me a candy cane, candy bar or a something from the gift shop. He always said, “Ah momma, let her have it”. He would then wink at me and say, “You can have it” and never charge us for it. I still have a jewelry box from his store that he gave me that has been passed down to my girls. He was one of a kind and will me dearly missed.

Sincere condolences to Mike's family. Mike was one of my mentors in the Pharmacy profession & he will surely be missed.
Lisa S Taylor left a message on May 19, 2021:
While I did not know Mike nor do I know any member of his family, we have something in common. My mother, Elsie, was born on precisely the same day as your dad, Mike. She was born on a farm in northeast Arkansas and today lives near Choudrant with her husband of almost 73 years. My prayers are that precious memories of Mike fill the hole in your hearts. I know you will miss him.

I was blessed to have known Mike as a coworker as well as a fellow pharmacist. What a kind, hardworking, fun guy! My kids all were so grieved to hear of "Mr. Mike's" passing as well. He definitely was a family favorite! Shirley, you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers as you deal with this huge loss! With love, Susan, Lee, Sara and Margaret Jacks
Sue LaBorde left a message on May 18, 2021:
Mike was a super nice guy! Always with a smile and a willingness to help. One of my favorite memories is when our son was very young and needed a prescription filled after the pharmacy was closed. I called Mike at home and he immediately came and opened the pharmacy and filled the prescription. There aren’t many good people like that. My prayers and condolences to his family.

It is with deep sorrow that we write this note to the Napoli family. Fay and I and our boys have so many wonderful memories of Mike and Shirley as well as their children. Town and Country Pharmacy was our health safety net. Mike, always on the alert, made sure the meds were safe. He took time to share with us any issues that might cause a problem, he let us know. We were also members of NMBC, along with the Nopoli family. We loved Mike and grieve with you. Thank each of you for allowing us to be a part of your lives. He will be forever missed and you in our prayers.

Shirley, my dearly beloved Mary, and young men: I just heard of your loss, and my heart is breaking for you all. Please know that I will "pray without ceasing" for your comfort and peace during this difficult time. Mike was the absolute best pharmacist in the world, as everyone who visited the Town & Country Pharmacy will quickly acknowledge. We all said Mike had the knowledge of a physician. I will add that he also had the heart of a saint! I know you will take a special comfort in knowing that you were blessed to have him as a husband and dad. Mary, your obituary for your dearly loved dad is so very beautifully written. He was proud of your path into the English world. He told me so. Love to you all! Janis and Charles Hill
