Michael of Homer Street Peet's

I didn't want to upset his coworkers by asking then and there what had happened. Does anyone know? Was he ill?
I will miss seeing him :(

He died last Monday morning in the shop, as he and the other morning crew were prepping before the shop opened for the morning. Apparently he simply collapsed and was dead well before the emergency crews arrived. He seemed to this patron as too young to die, but apparently his smoking and life just caught up with him. At least he went quickly, which is a blessing. Watching my parents go through long, slow, awful declines puts his sudden demise into perspective, but he was definitely at an age where dying is unexpected and a shock.

Thanks for the information. How horribly sad for his team, and for us.

There was another discussion about Michael, but it's way down on page 2 now. Many customers and co-workers chimed in with tributes.
