Not sure what to say?

My condolences to you Marsha and your family. We had lots of good times with Chuck from high school onwards. I shared some old photos from the early 70's with our group, including Colin. You might enjoy them.

Chuck was an amazing, kind and thoughtful brother in law. Many years ago he inspired us to cook and has shared many recipes with us that we have passed onto our children. He will be greatly missed.

Mike was my first boss at The Canadian Press - and the best boss I ever had. He was also a mentor and a friend. He was smart, compassionate, and funny. A wonderful editor with a true sense of news. I know how much he loved Marsha and Reagan - he spoke of them often. I last saw him at a lunch with our mutual friends Bob and Denise and it was wonderful to catch up. What a loss.

Mike was my boss when I first joined the Canadian Press. What a wonderful introduction. I was amazed at his vast knowledge and lifted by his warmth and positive outlook. A steady rock of a person who knew what was important in life. Solid as they come. We all learned so much from him. I have often thought of him. My deepest sympathies.

Mike was a prince of a guy, a true gentleman and a savvy newsman. Mike & Ken Becker conspired to give me one of the most important breaks of my career and I am forever grateful. My condolences to his family.
