There is less light in this world, Mike, because of your passing, but you sure gave it sparkle. Your inspiration to your students, your laughter and silliness, generosity and hope, and constant optimism left anyone you met feel better. I was a blessed sister.

I will miss Michael, his humor, his art, his caring about others. He was always kind and welcoming. He will live on in my heart.

Sorry to hear of his passing.
We were friends back in the 70’s and 80’s, but lost touch.
Again, my condolences.

My condolences to Jerry. I purchased a sculpture titled "Punctuation" in early 2000's at an art fair in Indian Wells, CA. It is one of my favorite pieces and is now in a prominent spot in my Naples, FL home. I remember how nice both Michael & Jerry were and they shipped it to Milwaukee. Michael did the stainless steel and Jerry did the glass. I just want you to know how much I appreciate it. Very best to you Jerry.

Only knowing Michael for a short time does not diminish the impact his passing has had on me. Seeing the love he and Jerry shared touched my heart. Which is sadly broken. Rest now dear Michael. We all will keep an eye on Jerry for you.

I can’t believe Michael is gone. I loved going out to dinner with you two and then going back to your house to chat. Michael’s wonderful sense of humor always had me laughing and his kindness always made me feel welcomed. My heart aches. My thoughts are with you Jerry.
