Condolence From: Peter Rosenberg
Condolence: Wino was the guy you loved to see coming through the door. He always made your day better with a wry observation on life as he shook his head side to side. And he listened to what you had to say and gave pretty good advice, too. He was a gentle soul and everyone liked him; he had no enemies.

I considered him one of my closest friends growing up and I’m sure there were a hundred other guys who would say the same. Playing King of the Mountain at Adams School, getting kicked out of class together in Junior High for not wearing socks, going to jams, hanging out in the park, getting yelled at by Al (although you were his favorite), playing softball and hitting the bars in Madison afterwards, tipping a few in his place on Wheeler Street and then the apartment on Court Street, and, of course, in the watering holes downtown. Who else could walk into the Bear Trap and order “a Dog, a Lou, and some dirt” and have the bartender nod and bring him an Old Style, a Budweiser, and a can of Copenhagen? He was the undisputed King of Main Street and will be missed by so many.

Mike, we didn’t see each other much in recent years but those memories will always be there. So sad to see you go.

Condolence From: K. Andreah Briarmoon
Condolence: Michael, You taught me about the importance of having my car detailed - at least once per year, but ideally, twice - Spring and Fall. And apparently a sewing machine to you was as mysterious as car stuff was to me. You insisted on giving me a ridiculous amount of money for simply hemming the lace curtains for your parlor doors. I will always cherish the support and encouragement that you gave to me during the horrible ordeal of my child having been snatched, four months to locate her and bring her home. I am grateful to Dave and Lisa for introducing us at their mid-January "beach party"; furnace cranked above 85 degrees, 30 below outside, Pina Collatas, sand piled on the living room floor (on a tarp, I hope). Their whole entourage of friends, including you, took in me and my five children. Duck Soup band, music, potluck dinners, picnics, swimming, cook-outs, bonfires, weddings, birthdays, moving parties, insane Halloween parties - a lively bunch. Tons of memories. When my name became Briarmoon, my nickname went from Mac to Mac-moon. I appreciate your sensitivity, integrity, humor, and style. Warmly, Andreah
