Our sincere condolences to the Freedman family. I heard of Mike's passing last week over dinner with an associate of Mike Freedman's,Mike Porges, who also worked at Gillette. I too worked at Gillette in the creative side of the business. Mike and I worked on many projects at Gillette. We also tried our hands running a Stride Rite Shoe store. I very much enjoyed Mikes association. He was funny, kind, and a good partner. With much love and prayers for strength at a time most needed.

We were sorry to learn of Mike's passing.

I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Gillette. He had a great sense of humor, and an amazingly infectious laugh.

We enjoyed playing golf with both of you in Concord.

Best wishes to you and your family,

Norm and Pauline Roberts

Dear Anna, I am honored that I had the privilege to get to know your Dad and your family during the years that you and Christina played for Boston Blast. Your dad is a kind person, treated the girls with the utmost respect and was loved by all. His passion for soccer was awesome. I could always count on him to answer my silly soccer questions as we stood along the sidelines cheering you on. His memory will forever live on in my heart and in the lives he has touched along the way. With heartfelt condolences to you Anna and your family.

Dorothy and family: I had the pleasure of working with Mike in the Gillette Stationery Products Group first in Europe and later in Boston. He was such a great colleague and a very friendly and helpful person. I very much appreciated his kindness, his friendship and his counsel and support in various matteres. He had great business acumen and a wunderful sense of humor and it was always fun to work with him also in times when it got tough. It is so sad to hear, that he is no longer with us. I am Sorry for your. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mike, a great person and a great professional. Generous, warm and friendly treatment, always transmiting an aura of peace and humility in every life matter.
For me he was a truly "mentor" since we landed in Boston with the family in 1997 and I had the privileged to work and learn too much from him in Gillette. I will always be greatly thankful of his support.
I am deeply saddened by this news.

I worked with Mike in Gillette International. What a great guy he was to work with - friendly, level-headed, and open to contributions from everyone on his team. My sympathies to his family.

Mike was a very good friend. We had many great times together, at Gillette, at dinners with the four of us, and especially on the golf course. I will miss Mike immensely.
