"Michael loved rice pudding! Whenever I would come to St. Louis, or he would come to NY, he would often ask me to bring him some from the deli in my hometown of Bronxville, NY. He would also tell me not to tell Noémi! I met Michael as an early investor in Centene, but we became friends, and he was a mentor to me. His love of family and friends, particularly his co-workers at Centene, were most important to him. I remember walking with him in the headquarters and was struck by how many people he knew by first name asking them how things were going at work and at home. Friends and family were his oxygen and he thrived with people around him. I am a better man knowing Michael and his beloved Noemi. May God bless Noemi and Peter and all who knew and loved Michael."
