Mike and I first met at The Bronx House Community Center just as we were entering our teen years. The Bronx House was equidistant from where we lived: Me - 2355 Williamsbridge Road, Mike - 2084 Bronx Park East. It was over a mile between our two buildings, so we frequently spoke by phone: Me - OL 4 1258, Mike - UN 3 4575 Mike was often hanging out/working at his parents dry cleaning store, Ebony Cleaners on 7th Avenue at 127th Street in Harlem - SA 2 9288. At The Bronx House, we were in a social group we named The Regulators. After a couple of years, our horizons expanded to the 92nd Street Y. There, we formed a group called the Ebonies with Mike serving as President. Depending on context, we used the expression "EBONY, EBONY!" for our hello, goodbye, a cry for help, confirmation, consolation, affirmation, acknowledgment, bonding and just for the hell of it. It was mainly used as a substitute for: "Catch you later." Although Mike eventually moved to Texas and I remained in New York, we spoke frequently throughout the years. Without fail, Mike would always end our conversations with: "EBONY, EBONY! He said it exactly the same way and with the same youthful enthusiasm as when we were teenagers. Mike always lived his life with that same youthful enthusiasm. EBONY, EBONY! Billy B.

Michael was a fraternity brother of mine from Westchester Community College in Valhalla NY. in the mid 1960's. He will always be in my heart for helping me unlock the mysteries of my own spiritual journey. Although he has left this world, take comfort in knowing that he will be waiting for all his loved ones on the other side. May God bless you all and give you peace. Anthony Bianchini, Albany NY
