The Stern family, the older and the younger, has been dining at the Bagel for more than 50 years. Kedzie, then Devon, and currently Broadway. Mike, these past 10 years or so, would most often sit down with us and chat as we awaited our Sunday breakfast. He considered us friends, you could read it on his face. When he asked my daughter and I, just two weeks ago, how we were dealing with the oppresive heat, I responded, "As long as I can feast on kippers at the Bagel, all is well in the world." Mike's eyes brightened and he chuckled, telling me that he appreciated my appreciation of how kind he had been for so many years. Mike was a one-of-a-kind guy and we will miss him. It is not for no reason that my daughter and I, the second and third generation (my dad, who died at 95, was the first) of the Sterns, make the Bagel our home on Sunday mornings. We'll be back soon.
Our deepest condolences
The Sterns (Edward and Lauren)
