What terribly, terribly sad news. It is always such a blow when a young person
is taken from us, and Michael's sweetness and generosity of spirit make the loss
all the sadder. My condolences to Michael's family and his many friends.

With great sorrow we announce that Michael J. Kiskis passed away today,
Mother's Day, in Binghamton, New York after suffering heart failure. He died
surrounded by his caring and devoted wife Ann, friends and family members.
He was beloved and he was one of those rare individuals who knew how much he
was loved and he loved in return. Those of us who were among his friends
recognized that he was and will always be our greatest gift. As Twain said
we are thunder struck by his loss.
As plans are made for a memorial celebration of his life, information will
