"To Noémi, Peter and family: Michael’s profoundly deep and abiding love for you was always on full display and wonderful to behold. It also spilled over generously to his friends, his beloved community, our country and indeed the world. May the memory of his love and devotion – and that broad smile with a twinkle in his eye – lift you up and give you strength during this very difficult time. Leonard and I hold you close to our hearts as always and forever."
