I worked with Michael when the Ramada Rennaisance first opened on Broadway, he used his humor and great personality to get his point across. He definitely made the shift fly by. I'm very sorry for your loss, it has to be huge. My prayers are with you.

Mike was an inspiration. A swell guy. I guess that's what he was best at, being a swell guy. Now Jesus gets to have a swell guy to hang out with until we all meet again.

Many memories of Mike. His first Gym in Saratoga. The many lessons he taught me about life. But most of all his journey with all of Bill W's friends, RIP. It was a pleasure. God Bless you and your family.
