  4. Sending love and strength to Mike’s family. Mike and I went to FHS and met at the “radio” station in the cafeteria. When we went to UNB we kept going at the FM station. Mike and I stayed in touch over the years and he kept his passion for music, which we share. He will be remembered fondly by all of his many friends, including me. Steve Staples (Toronto)

  5. Mike, you were the longest relationship I had, going back to my teens and we should have had many more years. We spent so much time playing cribbage and listening to music. When my kids were young you babysat them, you taught them how to play crib and told them your jokes. Every time someone says “what’s up?” I immediately think of you and how you’d always answer with “the sky” and then you’d laugh that contagious laugh. I will always miss and love you. Rest peacefully my friend.
    These lyrics best describe how I’m feeling:

    “Where went that cheeky friend of mine?
    Where went that billion dollar smile?
    Guess life is long
    When soaked in sadness
    On borrowed time
    From Mr. Madness
    And so it goes
    A choking rose back
    To be reborn
    I want to hold you like you’re mine
    You’re gone but you’re on my mind
    I’m lost but I don’t know why
    You’re gone but you’re on my mind
    I’m lost but I don’t know why”

  6. Rest in Peace Mike, you’ve been a great friend and example of positivity and generosity in this life. I’m very sad you had to leave us so soon, I’ll miss you always and think of you often. May God richly bless you in the beyond.

    My deepest condolences to your father Richard Tait and your family, and to all your friends & roomates in Moncton.

    Lots of love.

  7. I was so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. We grew up on the same street and I was friends with Dick and Mary Ellen. Mike would come be everyday to take our dog Princess for a walk and he loved that dog. I am so grateful for the support provided to Mike by the staff at his care home and for the love and companionship given by Jim and Betty Harvey. You are indeed true angels.

  8. I am saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. We met back during our FHS days and kept in touch off and on after high school. My condolences to Richard and Trevor’s family.

  9. Dear Mike,
    We had so many good times in the late 80s in Fredericton.
    I am grateful to have had you as a friend. You were special in so many ways. Yet the most indelible memory I have of you was your kindness and readiness to be a friend to everyone.

    Always your friend
