    Congratulations Mike! I hope your journey through your retirement years goes as well as mine have since January 2016! I remember many encounters with you and how much I enjoyed working with you. It was a real pleasure! The PICPA was very lucky to have you for many years. Best wishes!!

    Congratulations, Mike.  I cetainly hope retirement will provide you with much adventure and satisfaction.  You have had an amazing opportunity to see our profession grow and change; and you have contributed immensely to Pennsylvania CPAs.  My memories begin several years before yours, since I can remember having to get to the office early as a staff member, or risk having to use a hand-crank adding machine instead of an electric one for the day.  Thanks for all you've done ... and ENJOY!!
