If you read Michele Longo Eder’s obit in the March 31 News-Times, you are aware of her many impressive accomplishments. You already know of a life well lived with few wasted opportunities. You also know what is most uplifting about her life was all her efforts were in service of helping others. What I want you to know is what an extraordinary experience it was to have Michele as a close friend.

How did I meet this person, you ask, living in Michigan as we did? Well, one of the early summers we came to do maintenance on our future retirement house, I noticed an attractive, dark-haired young woman cupping her hands around her face peering through our dirty windows. I went outside to ask, “Can I help you?” Her reply: “Busted!” I didn’t know she was an attorney.
