I never met a man so pure of heart, as Michael Leebron. He was my mentor. And any time I asked him "what he thought I should do, about any given situation, he would tell me straight out, whether I was wasting my money, or once and only once, did he say, I should fight something. And never once took me up on my offer to pay him, just like any other client. He even helped me, by introducing me to Michael McSpadden, for a research paper I was doing in college. He loved to help, especially if he saw that the results did help someone step up their game and become a better contribution to society. I used to get kidded a lot about my last name being Meek, bc of the beatitudes in the Bible, " Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
When it comes to Michael, I can't think of anything more fitting to describe him than "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall be with God." What a truly, good man this planet has lost.

I just found out yesterday, about the loss of the kindest, most generous, and pure of heart men I ever met. I am truly bereaved at the moment. I've known Mike since 1976, and out of all those years, he would tell me straight out, advice about matters that would pop up over the years, like, "forgot your ring, forget the furniture, sorry honey, there just aren't any laws governing this situation yet." And most of the time my anger over some stupid little injustice, were not worth hiring a lawyer over. Only once did he say, "Go for it", but oddly enough, I would offer him money, or beg him to treat me as a regular client, and he wouldn't hear of it. I always hear, "Blessed are the Meek for they shall inherit the earth." And man, when they say "Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God" , Leebron is there.
He was my mentor, the person I would turn to for advice after my folks were gone, and this is the kind of man Michael Leebron was---when I was in college, he helped set up an Interview with Michael Mc Spadden for one of my research papers AND took the time to read a short story in poem version from front to back about the first incident I came cryin' to him about; I guess it was one of the VERY few times he had 5 min.s to spare out of 37 years of knowing how busy he was. And he could have been making 2 to 300 an hour and just said, "Cool that you took a neg. and made a positive out of this tragedy", but If I recall, he said he had studied literature in school, and therefore took the time to read the whole damn thing. What a guy!! You are missed, and you forever will be missed. PS (I've heard that he has a daughter in Austin, not far from where I live. I would love to meet you. I feel so bad that I promised him a big ol' pot of gumbo, since he wouldn't take money, for years but I was kind of afraid the seafood might go bad by the time I got it to Houston. Maybe I could repay some of the kindness to the next generation. My name is Debbie Meek and my number is 512 769 9535.

I had the honor of knowing Mike for a short period of time. I have been an employee at FHLBJ for about a year and a half. Mike's office down the hall from mine. It is hard to come into a new work environment. He would walk by my office and make small talk. One day our conversation led to working out and he found out I was also a certified personal trainer. He told me of his love for lifting weights and asked for my opinion on exercises he could do for his knee. I researched and gave him a few. You would have thought I was the smartest trainer in all of Houston. He was so thankful for my suggestions and made me feel extremely happy to help. He even offered my family and I a free ride of the Belle for my input! After that, we had our common ground to discuss and I looked forward to hearing his comments and laugh every day. Mike, just want you to know that I will always think of you on "leg day". I hit my quads extra hard this week just for you! You are greatly missed.
