Mike always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. He endured a lot over the years but never lost his positive outlook. He was always the first to help someone if they needed it. To say that we will miss him is an understatement. The appreciation that I have for him is beyond measure. Rest easy Mike, you will be missed but never forgotten

I heard of Mike's passing today from a friend who used to work at Rehab Programs. I had not spoken with Mike in decades. I was, at one point, the audit partner from a small Westchester CPA firm and did the annual audit of that nonprofit. Mike was a very smart and funny man and I had a lot of respect for him. He was quite eclectic. You won't know me but my name is Mike McNee and I am the head audit partner now of a very large CPA firm headquartered in NYC with offices along the east coast. I felt it important to say a prayer just now for his soul and in remembering him, it now makes me so sad for your loss. God bless.

My condolences to Mike's family and friends. I got to know Mike over the course of many years. He was extremely kind and generous to me and I will always think of him with the utmost respect. He was a man of great dignity, class and perseverance. We shared many laughs and I will always be thankful for his friendship.
