"It has taken a while to try to even express what this man meant to me. He was a leader, a mentor, an inspiration, a father figure, and a legacy. He was one of the most selfless and humble people I have ever met. He made me a better person through his examples of charity and doing what is right. His smile could light up the darkest night and his humor could put anyone at ease. He was a visionary that changed the world. There will never be another Michael and I feel so very honored to have known him and worked side by side with him. He was the heart and soul of Centene. He was a titan of healthcare but would give the shirt off his back if it meant it would help someone live a better life. He is what we all should strive to be. Michael, you were loved so much. The loss we feel is staggering. You will be forever in your hearts. Always. God bless you Noemi, Peter, Susan, and the Neidorff family."
