Michael was only with us here at Merrill Lynch for 6 months, but in that time he made an indelible impression. It is extremely rare that anyone is universally liked and admired in a business setting, but Mike was. He was insightful, clever and hardworking (he was the first one in and the last to leave) - but most of all, he was kind and considerate to everyone around him - an absolute pleasure to work beside every day. He spoke about his family every day and loved spending time with them. He was extremely proud of his brother Tim and the improvement he was showing in his basketball game - Mike said that you were going to be better than him soon, and he meant it. Kathi and Michael, Sr. raised a wonderful, wonderful young man, and everyone he met had to think so, because he was indeed special. Our thoughts are with the Ice family during this tragic time. We would all be better to know more young men like Michael.

Kathi, we are so sorry to hear about your son Michael. I read about him in the Rye Record. I still have a subscription to that even though we've been in Houston for 17 years now. Hope you remember us, we worked with you at Texaco. I can't imagine your pain. We have 2 sons, 1 is the same age as Michael. Cindy and John Gazouleas
