"I never seen a more loyal, down to earth person whose heart was filled with compassion and love for his fellow human. Michael was someone that would argue with you for opening the car door for him. I miss the jokes. I will miss our talks on world politics, the Cardinals and the Yankees and especially where is the best place to get sable in NYC. Most of all I will miss his friendship and his life guidance. He always picked up your phone. The last time I saw him he turned to me in the car and says Mike I am talking to as your uncle please do not get upset. That was last life guidance he gave me. Rest in Peace Uncle Michael."
