  • Hello,
    I used to be Susie Rosen, and when I was a junior at Mather High School, Michael, a sophomore was my boyfriend, and my old best friend sent me his obituary. I am writing because I still remember how funny, gentle, and sweet he was, a real delight. I am sure he was a wonderful husband and father, and I am sorry for your loss.
