Michael was a good man who loved his family and wanted the best for them and for others in the world he knew. His passing deeply saddened me. I believe this society lost a good man just when good men are needed most. Peace be with him and those who loved him. TE

Dear Susan and Graham,
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Michael. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the time to come as you adjust to losing Michael so quickly and while Michael was young. We trust that the memories of all the years you shared will bring comfort to you. David has very fond memories of Michael as a member of the klezmer band and of Graham in the Temple Beth El youth orchestra.
