  1. Hi, I worked with Michael in San Antonio. He was a fantastic human! He was studying to be an anthropologist. He loved humanity and all the diverse cultures we have. He was working on writing a novel. I was fortunate to read a bit of it. He was into politics. We had a lot of fun chatting about life. I will miss greatly.
