"I am glad that a classical guitar piece plays for this web site. Michl was too shy to talk about  playing guitar publicly, but play he did. His favorite guitar piece was a tune written by Leonardo DaVinci. i remember the the first time he came over for dinner and he brought his oil portrait of a tucan. Yes, friend is the right word for Michl. He told me my hair was not turning gray - it was platinum. We used to do New York art galleries together. For his birthday one year we saw the Monet exhibit at MOMA. The first time I asked if I could play chess in the group at Port Chester he asked if I wanted to play for money. I am so sorry that he is not still in Port Chester."

"Michl & I lived in the same building. At times we'd meet at the mailbox & ride the elevator together after work. Though it was a short ride to the 4th flr, he aways had something fun to say or asking questions "what's for dinner"; "who are you voting for"; "see any good movies lately", "you've never met my cat?". I was shocked & so sad to hear of his passing. He will be missed. Condolences"

"It may sound hackneyed, but Michl was without doubt the heart and soul of the chess group that met weekly at the Port Chester public library. He was always the first to invite a curious onlooker to play a game, which is how we first met some years ago. Michl played chess optimistically and with great flair, which is how I suspect he lived the rest of his life as well. He will be missed."

"Michl I will miss you buddy. He was such a great person with a good heart! Some of his jokes were cheesey, but they still made you laugh. Thanks for re-freshing all of my chess skills and teaching me new ones. Gone but not forgotten, may you rest in peace."

"Mike and i have worked closely for about 5 years. He had taught me all that i know in chess. Even to the point where he told me Javi listen here is one rule, "you should never beat the teacher". Mike was a great man with always the best intensions. He was full of jokes and enjoyed everything about life. Mike will be missed dearly but with this page his memory will live on forever.God bless"

"Mikes love for EVERYTHING made him this an absoltue pleasure to be around. His spirit could lift anyone up even in their darkest times. Whether it be sharing a beer, playing a game of pool or wolfing down a Sam's burger, I could not have asked for better company. I am truly honored to have known him."
