The biggest bonus of marrying into the Katz family (Laura) was meeting and getting to know both Mickey and Esther. I truly enjoyed every minute ever spent with them. I am so sorry to learn of Mickey’s passing this week. Truly one of the good guys!! I’m sure he can rest east knowing he raised a wonderful family and was loved by so many. He is missed already and his memory will bless many.

Our love for "Uncle Mitch" was shared by all who knew him. He was not only our Aunt Esther's devoted life companion, but he was the voice of reason, the calm and steadfast advocate of family values that bridged generations and spanned a continent. Our memories are sweet. His life a blessing. Our loss tremendous. Our sympathy to Gerri, Larry and Elana sincere.
