Michael was a kind and giving person. Always greeted everyone with a smile. He did great things for The Children's Shelter. God's peace to him and his loved ones.

Michael was always constant. No matter what day or occasion, he always offered a welcoming smile, cheerful hello, a warm hug and then always would make me laugh. I will miss seeing you at temple! I know you will rest in peace for you shared so much while on earth.

Nancy, Jennifer, & Erin,

We were so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, especially during the weeks and months ahead as you learn to adjust to this great void in your life. Michael had such a huge personality and he will truly be missed...not only by you, his family, but by all who knew him. Yesterday we kept thinking of all the funny things Michael used to say and all those good times we had together. Those funny sayings will stay with us forever. Even though he is gone, our memories of him will live on.

We pray that God will remain especially close to you today and in all the days ahead. Nancy, we will make plans to stop and see you on our trip north this spring. I wish we could be there today to give you a big hug. Just know that we are thinking of you and are with you today in spirit.

May God Bless and Keep You!

Dear Yoffe Family,
we are part of Nancy's other family, CruisePlanners. We were fortunate enough to enjoy Michael and Nancy's company on a couple of cruises. We so enjoyed our time together on the American Queen this past September. We really loved Michael's stories and loved sharing memories and stories about our mutual, precious, grandchildren.
Chris and I are praying for you all at this tragic and sad time.
Blessings, Chris and Sheila Korte

Dear Nancy and Family,
Our hearts go out to you and your family at this very sad time. We wish we could have spent much more time together, but we do cherish the "long distance" friendship we have shared for so many years. We will always remember Michael with great love and respect and are thankful that we had a nice visit in Asheville summer before last. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort in the difficult days ahead. May Michael's memory be for a blessing. With much love, compassion, and friendship always, Judi and Howard
