Dear family of Michael,

We were very saddened to read the obit in the paper this week. We got to know Michael well from his real estate business on St. Simons. He was invaluable to us as he handled many investment real estate purchases for us while we were living out of state. It was always a great pleasure talking to Michael as his charm and great attitude were always on the forefront. We have now retired here in Georgia and I am sad to say that we did not get a chance to see Michael again before he passed, but we wanted you to know that we were very fond of him.

Our deepest condolences,
Take Care,

Chuck and Linda Dries

We are so very sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He was very good to my family and I since meeting him upon our move to St. Simons. Our prayers are with you and please let me know if there is anything we can do as he was a dear friend to my father. We will have fond memories of boating, eating and talking with Michael on many of the beautiful days in the Golden Isles. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the Alderman family.

Sue and I purchased our home thru Michael. I came to know him better as I walked my dog in the Village early mornings. He was always around and we sometimes had breakfast together. I studied Michael's genealogy as he was interested in becoming a member of the Son's of the American Revilution. He was duly qualified. I also learned that his ancestry was from Limerick Ireland, being a Palatine and also a probable cousin. We enjoyed our ribs and stories and cocktails at remote places around Brunswick. So sorry.

Kathryn I worked for your Father on and off for several years. In all that time one thing never changed, he always had your photo on his desk. I am very sad to hear of his passing. I know how much he loved you both.

My sincere and deepest sympathies to the Alderman family. I became friends with Michael last year, as we both began exploring retired and semi-retired lives in Ecuador. He was a very good friend and I will surely miss his presence and our friendship. I am very sorry for your loss.

I am saddened to read of the passing of Mr. Alderman. May his loved ones take comfort in Jesus' invitation found at Matthew 11:28 which reads, " Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you."

My sincere sympathy to the family of Michael Alderman. Michael made his own way in the real estate brokerage community here in the Golden Isles. It was my good fortune to have business transactions with Mike. Though I only knew him casually, he was professional is all regards in the transaction or two he and I worked together. He took good care of his clients and customers, and he had a big heart. You would want to know that I was reciepient of his good will and caring heart during a couple of the darkest years I went through in a bankruptcy in '08 & '09. I would want Mike to know that I have played that kindness forward in the truest sense of the Golden Rule. He was a fine fella, indeed. Roland L. Daniel, Broker for Roland Daniel Properties.
