Not sure what to say?

Mike was an awesome colleague at the American Osteopathic College of Pathology and the American Osteopathic Board of Pathology. He helped the College navigate difficult times as we moved from independent management to being part of the original iteration of the AOA Certifying Board Services. I will miss him immensely.

I went to college and med school with Mike.
He was always friendly and helpful...loved to play guitar ...he was a great asset to the Ostepathic profession.

Mike Smith D.O., OU Pathology Resident

Mike was a trusted and amicable fellow Pathology Resident at OU (OKC, OK). Upon completion of Residency, he led the OU Lab Hematology/Hematopathology Section for several years. We joined forces again in 1995, when I recruited him to help lead the Hematopathology Section at Christus St Elizabeth Hospital (Beaumont TX), a position that he held for 20+ years, until his retirement several years back.

I considered Michael to be one of my closest friends. We had some great times playing guitar together. I was deeply saddened when I learned of his passing. I wish we had spent more time jamming.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
