Michael, I missed you when you left the states to “go home” and miss you tons more knowing you’ve gone on to meet your maker.
I shared more than a few Irish cocktails with Mr. Michael Scanlan; moments and memories that recently and tragically gained infinite value.
Michael, I’m sorry I will never be able to sit with you at your country house in Athea, Ireland, in the County Limerick, to enjoy conversation over a few pints of Guinness or (and?) a bottle of Bushmill’s like we have done so many times together.
What a loss. What a tragic and terrible loss.
