Mike Cordelli passed away yesterday while on a trip to Napa. I knew Mike over 10 years on Flyertalk. We broke bread many times at restaurants, WineDo's, and in my home. A nice guy is an understatement when talking about Cordelli. Mike was a caring individual. When he found out that I was in the toy business, he asked if I had anything that could be donated to the disadvantaged children in Norwalk CT. He would come to my home annually to pick up those boxes of toys. Mike also was involved in animal rescue. His post on Facebook always reminded his followers to think about those homeless animals. I feel so sorry for Anna, his wife. They did everything together. It's my understanding that he died in Napa; enjoying another one of his passions, wine (and travel). Mike could be depended on to bring a good, no, exceptional bottle to our wine dinners aka WineDo (on Flyertalk). To say I'll miss him is an understatement. He wasn't a screen name to me. He wasn't someone that I met once or twice and touched me. Mike was someone that I knew and liked after multiple meals together in the Metro NY area. To those reading that didn't know Mike Cordelli, or only knew him from what he posted on Flyertalk, you missed out. If you knew Mike, then you understand what I'm saying. Mike was a rare breed in the online world. He was a real gentlemen. May his memory be a blessing.
