  1. Fr. Mike was one of the coolest people and best priests I’ve ever known, and I just think we at Res were amazingly lucky to get to know him.

  2. Mike was wond of the finest men I ever met. He and I used to play bridge together once in a while. I also saw him just before I left the Bay Area and seeing him and talking to him gave me courage to go on with my life.

    He told me some people have to live to know why things happen and some have to die. I knew he was dying then.

    I was very sorry to hear of his death. I will always remember his kindness and laughter.
