Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary to Mike and Heidi


Mike was a good friend of mine during my City College days (1967-72) as we belonged to the same fraternity.  In October 1970 he met Heidi at one of our fraternity parties at our Brooklyn location.  In November 1971 he became engaged to Heidi at the Mill Basin Bowling Alley.  We joked and said he wanted to strike at a spare moment when Heidi was in the right frame of mind.

They were married on June 17, 1973, at Terrace on the Park in Flushing Meadows.  At that time Mike was at law school at the University of Pennsylvania while I was a graduate student at the University of Rhode Island.

I kept in touch with Mike until the end of 1976 when I relocated to southeastern Connecticut to work at Pfizer in Groton.  After then, I lost track of him for many years until the coming of Google searching.  It is an unofficial hobby of mine to try to find people I haven't seen in decades.  Mike became a highly successful attorney and lives in Brooklyn.  Mike and Heidi had two sons.  I don't know if they have grandchildren.

My reconnections with people through social media, telephone, or even face-to-face were very brief.  Thus, I decided not to try to contact Mike after not seeing him for 47 years.  I don't have any bitter feelings toward him, but I believe I must look ahead to the future, not back upon the past.

Happy anniversary to Mike and Heidi.
