Alice and Susan,

We share the loss of a great guy. Mike’s perspective, humor and recounting of Tait and family history was something we always enjoyed. He was kind, wise and a good friend. Your names always come up when we gather and your spirits are forever intertwined with good memories of Tait. We’re so glad we got a chance to see him that last visit.

Love to you both from our family,

Jon Schumacher and Mary Briggs

Dearest Alice and Susan,

We just returned from a week at Tait. Ron called this morning to tell us the news of Mike. We are so saddened to hear of our precious Mike’s passing. He was a wonderful, fun, talented man who always made coming up to Tait Lake an extra special trip for us. We loved sitting with him, listening to stories, always laughing and always learning something!

We hope you are both well. We wish you gentle healing from this great loss. We will be in touch.

Much love,
Judy, Tony, Erica and Andrew

What a special friend Mike was to my father, Phil Martin. My sisters and I heard many stories of the adventures that my father and Mike had together. When I was little, my father would offer to read a book to me at bedtime. Instead, I would beg to hear stories of the antics of my dad and Mike. Their friendship endured their entire lives.
