If you have been around FlyerTalk for a while there is no doubt you have come across the posts by Mike Cordelli, one of the most gracious people you will ever meet in this community. The news is spreading fast…Mike passed away unexpectedly last night. We never met in person but we had interacted on FT and online numerous times and I feel like I have known the guy for years. It will be weird not interacting with him anymore. I am so so sad.
To get an idea what kind of person Mike was, here is his last message on Facebook:
Take some time to look up into the sky tonight and tomorrow night if you live away from lights. Starts tonight, but Sunday night may be the show with 100 per hour. Search perseid showers,for viewing tips
Here is a thread on FlyerTalk, appropriatelly titled: “A hole in the wall that may never be filled: RIP Cordelli”
A beautiful post about him by Canarsie at the Gate is here: In Memoriam, cordelli
I am shocked and heartbroken.
Mike, I know you are looking down on us from the sky now. Take care my friend and rest in peace. You have no idea how much we are missing you!
