Mike my brother! We were inseparable in our days of youth! There wasn’t a day that we wernt together. We were a part of each others family. You were an amazing drummer and your humor was so entertaining. Thank you for being such a great friend; you were a charm to all. And, we will always be together. El Malei Rachamim.

Micheal, Thank you for befriending me after realizing we may be brothers from different mothers.
You recognized our common bond, hyperactivity, disregard for authority & structure, rejecting anything that intruded on, pranks, screaming, running wild, mischief, trouble making, disrespect for rituals, the belief that if it does not make you laugh it has no purpose other than sustenance and later on music.
You taught me that you can steal your parents car and get away with it, toilet paper is not just a bathroom accessory, shaving cream is not just for grooming, you can annoy those in grade levels above you.
That alone we each caused fear and loathing, together we caused dread. Our parents did not seem to care if we were together, as long as they had some time away from us. Camp Laurel Wood kept us in separate bunks and had a dossier on us.
We helped each become comfortable with ourselves, behavioral issues became paths to laughter and joy. I’ll miss continuing to grow old together, looking at each other and remembering the good old days. Good bye my dear friend, love you!

Michael was the Great Goldman to me and my kids! We enjoyed every minute with him and will cherish the memories dearly! He was funny, caring, loving, generous, thoughtful!!! The list goes on. Every day we were together whether it involved going out to eat, the store, pharmacy run or an appointment. It was never a dull moment. No matter where we were he always put a smile on the faces of those around him. Every event I had that involved my family Michael always attended and everyone always looked forward to seeing him. This has hit me harder than I expected and has truly will take me time to heal from. I hope his children know how much he loved them and constantly spoke about what great adults they grew up to be. We love you Goldman ?? Rock those drums in heaven my good friend! Until we meet again I will always love and miss you!!!

My condolences go to his kids and family. Michael and I had a very different friendship. For 20 years we had bad times,good times,sad times,and times that only we would understand. He was a very special friend to me. He was extremely stubborn but had a huge heart. He also loved his music and his drums . He was ALWAYS there for me no matter what. He is now at peace and is suffering no more. He will ALWAYS have a place in my heart. We will see each other again in the afterlife. Until then,I love and miss you dearly Mr. GJ.

All my heartfelt condolences to the Goldman family at this time. Michael was one of my all time best friends. Through ups and downs we were always there for each other. Now there is a hole in my heart. Mike played with me at my Wedding as well as in our band at Nasson. To say I’ll miss him is a huge understatement. I’m so sad but will think of our good times Lobstering, and playing together, GodSpeed Mike!
