Dear CMENAS Community,

It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our friend and colleague Michael Bonner passed away on Friday May 24, 2019 suddenly at his Ann Arbor home. Michael came to U-M in 1989, and was known to many in Ann Arbor and the broader CMENAS community as a friend, colleague, mentor, teacher, and scholar. Going above and beyond, Michael also served the CMENAS intellectual community as Director two times, from 1997-2000 and 2001-2003. 

We have lost a scholar and a mensch unexpectedly, but may his memory live on. CMENAS will honor Michael's life and work with an article in its newsletter for Fall 2019. Please share your reflections, memories, and photos for inclusion by sending them to CMENAS <>. 

My condolences go to his family for their tragic loss.
