Michael (Left) and his husband, Pat (Right)
This last Saturday, the chorus lost one of its most endearing members. Michael Greene, one of our basses, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday morning. Michael was a longtime member of the chorus. He was one of the members who would be there with a hug and a smile. He was quick to tell you that he loved you and he meant it. He made the world a little brighter because he was in it. His husband, Pat, became our chorus Mom. They brought in treats and contributed many things to the chorus. Michael was known to pay membership dues of members that couldn't afford them. Michael was one of the HOAMC members who traveled to Carnegie Hall to sing "Sing for the Cure" as part of a chorus made up of members of various choruses from all over the United States. A while back, Michael was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and had to retire from his nursing career. He still faithfully and lovingly took care of his husband who also has ailments. Michael will be missed by many since he had a way of finding a place in the hearts of those he knew. Our thoughts and prayers are with Pat and the rest of Michael's family.
