Toledo has lost a good, kind man.
I met Michael Severino about 10 years ago. He was my trainer and mentor when I taught at Kaplan Test Prep.
Was saddened to see the news of his passing at such a young age. I hadn't seen him in several years and didn't realize that he had become such an involved animal advocate until I saw this morning's Blade article. It doesn't surprise me though. He was always willing to help someone in need and was quite possibly one of the kindest, most genuine people you could ever meet.
