Ever since I met Michael in 2004 when I started working at CCR I was immediately struck by his charisma, patience, insight, and passion. It always made my day and week when he would come to the office and stop by my office and chat about Cuba, building revolution, and politics. I was struck by the fact that here was the president of CCR taking time to talk and care about a “lowly” legal worker. But it all makes sense as we came to know each other. I’ve looked up to and learned from Michael’s example — something I still am today. So, it is with a full heart and a warm embrace that I send you, him, and your family love and hope for a speedy and full recovery.
