  1. My deepest condolences to Michael’s Family. I knew Michael well when he lived in London. He was my boss when I worked with him at the Liver Foundation donation section and we became dear friends. I loved him dearly but lost contact with him when I had to move to Ottawa. I tried to get back in touch a few times unsuccessfully. If Bruce could get ahold of me through email that would be nice. I only saw this today and I’m heartbroken to hear I lost a dear friend without being able to get in touch before. Heaven called an Angel home too soon. 🐾 💕
