So many fond memories, it's hard to decide what to share. There were Sunday lunches with his mom and dad with his mom's fabulous cooking, and food from his dad's beautiful garden. There were great dinners at the Belmont with the singing bartender, great food, and not so great service (but that was part of the fun). Crazy trips to Atlantic City where we fluctuated between living like kings and other times paupers. Fun times with my mom. One particular memory comes to mind-we treated my mom to a Broadway show-Oh Calcutta-we had no idea what it was about before we got there. Not the type of show you take your mom to. We laughed for years over that one! RIP Michael, you were definitely one of a kind.
