Even though I knew your dear father was in failing health, I was truly sorry to receive your call that he had passed. It is never easy to lose a loved one, especially a parent.
As you know, I met your dad many years ago, when he was a member Michigan State AFL-CIO Executive Board. And I have such great memories of him sitting in the front row at those meetings, signing checks, chewing on a cigar!
The one photo of him (with his cigar) on his remembrance page captures my memory of how he looked as he was signing those checks!
Mick was always in a good mood and always had a ready smile. It was a pleasure having him on our board.
He shall be missed.
Blessings to you and your family,
Patty Farhat, Secretary
Michigan State AFL-CIO
