Condolence: I was shocked to learn of Michael's death. He was a person filled with humor, energy, good spirit, moral outrage, and, of course, talent. It is sad to realize that he is no longer here to keep us all on the right track.
Condolence: Michael is legendary as a driving force in the late twentieth century's Harvard Square architectural community. During at least some of his years at The Architect's Collaborative, Harvard Square arguably was the world's most important architectural community. Within that community, Michael was very well known, loved and greatly respected.
Like others from Minnesota who ended up in Cambridge, Michael was an "art star". With seeming ease he was able to quickly express good design ideas with expressive sketches.
I feel fortunate to have known Michael and send my love to his family.
Condolence: My Condolences to Gebhart family:
Losing a loved one is never easy and my heart goes out to you. The pain is so real but the God of comfort helped me through that terrible pain when our daughter died and now when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to pancreatic cancer. God doesn’t leave us without hope. Notice these few Scriptures of comfort: Revelation 21:4 (no more sadness or death) Isaiah 33:24 (no more sickness) John 5:28, 29 (the Resurrection) Psalms 37:11 (where we will see our loved one) Psalms 37:29 (for how long).
When you feel up to reading these few Scriptures, may they be comforting to you as well.
