Irene, Laura and Christa: I still remember fondly the close proximity where we lived in North Plainfield, NJ and having fun in our yards. Then the visit to Orange County, CA. Mike kept us former Siemenslers together with his emails and annual wishes. He will be missed. My thoughts are with you with my deepest condolences for this loss.

Mike was a smart, kind and generous person who did everything with a smile. He helped me to land a wonderful job back in the late 80s that introduced me to outstanding colleagues and international travel. My heart goes out to his family and all who are grieving his loss.

So sorry for your loss. May the "Peace of God"(Phillipians 4:6,7) be yours as you cope with such a loss. Draw close to God and he will draw close to you.
