Here are some of the many kind comments folks made about Mike J. Quinn:
‘Mike wore a mantle of graciousness’
‘Pickwick in the flesh’
‘a good listener and funny too’
‘a model moderator’
‘humorous & kind & welcoming’
‘as crazy as I am!’
‘he always made an effort to show love’
‘he did readings to shut ins and made them feel good’
‘he had presence and warmth’
‘he looked for the best in people’
'he made me feel comfortable at meetings to share, no judgement’
‘a generous spirit who showed leadership’
‘helped me learn how to be a good man’
‘his spirit lives on in our group’

As the founder of the Dickens Society of Baltimore in 2010, I always felt Mike's warm welcome and support -- whether on a visit to a Friends of Dickens New York meeting perhaps in 2011 or 2012, or at the Morgan library exhibit on Dickens or when seeing him at the 2014 annual conference in Chicago. Sorry to have been out of touch with him in recent years, but I fully understand the sense of loss of NYC Dickensians.
