I was fortunate enough to be able to meet with Mike on many occasions over the years. I appreciated his intelligence, open-mindedness and wealth of experience. I will miss him. My condolences to the family.

A lot of people like to use the word "special" as a pun to talk about anything related to our restaurant, but I would really be remiss in saying how special Mike was to us. He was the first one to write about our place in his column in En Ville. He then immortalized the restaurant with his play "The Special" and it truly was special to see it off Broadway with my family. I still have the first scene of the play cut out from the newspaper way back in the 1960's. When I read it, I can visualize my dad behind the counter and the banter between him and the customers. It's a real treasure to us. Thank you, Mike.

He lived life on his own terms, following his passions and guided by his spiritual beliefs. In many ways, he was a trailblazer. Fortunately, he lived a long and full life.

Mike and I studied film production at Concordia together in the mid-90's. He was the loveliest gentleman and I was very fond of him. Although we lost touch afterwards, I never forgot his kind, affectionate disposition and his words of encouragement that I could always count upon in tough circumstances. I'm so sorry to hear that he has left us. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Heather Reisman - 21 days ago

Dear Lisa & Glen Thinking of you both today. Like so many who have posted here, I have so many warm memories of your Dad. He was always a loving uncle who clearly took joy in the love and interests of all his family. I still cherish a book he inscribed and gave me when I turned 13, the title of which is Great Leaders. His optimism, curiosity, willingness to chart his own course, and true empathy for others always defined him. He will be missed by so many. Love Heather

Mitchell Goldsmith - 22 days ago

Dear Glenn and Tracy: My brother and I grew up on Pineview, one back yard and two doors down from your house on Jellicoe, at a time when 5-year-olds could roam the neighbourhood freely seeking adventure so long as 7-year old Glenn could tear himself away from his crystal and chemistry sets to lead us. A very strong memory is that Judy and Mike took me to my first Alouettes game (Stuart and I still have season tickets). What I truly appreciate was having lived near people like the Gutwilligs, Grunvalds, and Strolls, on whose doors you could knock and always be welcome and safe. My condolences.
