My uncle Mike (Michael J O’Connor) passed away this week.

I have only met Mike once in person when I visited Atlanta a couple years ago. It was a brief visit, but Mike’s hospitality made me feel very welcomed. He took me for lunch at Whole Food and had a walk with me in a beautiful park. The morning when I was having breakfast with him at his home, he showed me deer in his backyard with the excitement of a child. That was one of my fondest memories.

Mike, I will miss you and I wish you rest in peace!
