I've known Mike since 2002 and we've become good friends especially over the last 5 years. Just a week before his stroke, we talked on the phone to arrange our next lunch. I felt honored to be considered his friend. His intelligence and wit far exceeded my own. I will miss him dearly.

Hi Leonard and Julie- I am so sad about your dad. We were dear friends. He leaves a great legacy! Leonard- we had dinner together last summer when I visited. I was so thrilled to meet you. Your dad adored both of you. If you need help with anything please let me know. Especially his work stuff- your dad and I worked on a few projects together. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Warmly, Mona
