I met Mike in 1986 as a medical student on my first outpatient pediatric rotation at [the former] Francis Scott Key Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland. He couldn’t have been that much older than I. What struck me was how kind and thoughtful he was. He never failed to send me a note when he saw a paper I wrote or heard about something I had done. I so valued these bits of contact from him. I will miss him.
