Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to just find out about Mike's passing. He was a wonderful person and I spent many days and hours with him at the early days of Hopatcong Hawks soccer. Mike was a great help during those years.

Mike was a great friend to Birth Defect Research for Children. He helped our organization in our search for answers to the effects Agent Orange had on veterans' children and grandchildren. I will miss him and wish his family my deepest condolences.

I am so very sorry to learn about Mike's passing. He and I worked tirelessly on Agent Orange issues with several other Vietnam Veterans for the past 18 years and it truly breaks my heart to lose this fine man. My heart goes out to his wife and family at this time. Rest in Peace, Michael. I love you my friend.

Today we mourn the passing of a great American and Humanitarian, Mr. Agent Orange of the Vietnam Veterans of America, our Brother Michael Eckstein. Michael Eckstein is one of the forefathers of the movement to fight for the rights of veterans and their families to successfully obtain treatment for exposure to dioxin Agent Orange and recently to all military exposures. From all of our Sisters and Brothers of VVA Chapter 327 we extend our deepest sympathy to the Eckstein family.

The time has arrived for you journey on the road to paradise which you have earned as a truly good person who is selfless and committed to others.. as a brother Veteran, you will be missed but never forgotten. None of us Veterans will ever be able to fill your shoes and accomplish the heights that you provided.
He will raise you up on Eagles Wings and hold you in the palms of His Hands. God's speed my brother .you will never be forgotten.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
