Eddy's Thoughts
Don't let life flutter by


I met Michael when I was searching for publications to carry my singles column. What struck me the most about him was his sincere desire to get to know me as a person, not just as someone who wrote a column for the Gantseh Megillah. I remember his calling me just to chat, just to get to know me, which really made me like and appreciate him and later grow to love him. Out of all the people I have known, I would have to say that Michael, more than anyone, truly cared about, truly loved, the people in his life. I know that I am not the only one who felt this way. Judging by what people posted on his Facebook page, there were many people whose lives he touched. He touched mine, and I will miss his loving spirit.
