Condolence From: Rob Goldberg
Condolence: Dear Mike and Family,

Friendship is a gift. Sometimes, it is a gift with dividends. I’ve known Mike since the 7th grade. As we became friends in high school, I got to know his family well. Though the ups and downs of our teen years, the promise of our time in college, and our early professional life, we hung out, worked together for our local caterer, and shared many meals together.

In fact, I was a fixture at the Whang’s house in Metuchen. Mr. Whang always encouraged me to come over, and spend time with them. When I worked at Muhlenberg Hospital over summer break, he made time to have lunch with me and gave me rides home when I needed them. Eventually, our families started getting together. Then Mike’s parents and my parents started going out to dinner ON THEIR OWN, without the kids! Imagine that.

It was with great pride when I brought my new bride home, we visited Mike’s parents at their house in Edison. As always, they were warm and kind, gently asking us about our future. It was a pleasure to visit with them as always.

I last saw Jimmy and Chin at Mike and Sylvia’s wedding. It was a fantastic event, and wonderful to see both of them beaming with pride. It was great that we could share this important moment in their lives.

With fond memories of Jimmy Whang, the most enthusiastic tennis player I’ve ever met (only 40 degrees, let’s play!), and heartfelt condolences for Mike, Lynda, Sylvia, Lauren, and Ella.
