I worked with Mike at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette. Everyone loved Mike...he was such a personable guy. We were close friends at that time. I remember one time in particular - We were leaving the DLJ Christmas party at the Rainbow Room, when we exited the doors facing Rockfeller Center, Mike paused to take in the sights and sounds, and said something to the affect "Look at this! Isn't this beautiful?! I hope everyone that is visiting here really enjoys all this". This statement was typical of Mike, which shows how thoughtful and considerate a person he was. I now run the Tunnel to Towers every year in his honor.
