: We had heard rumors awhile back that Mike Phillips, Huron Sachem, had passed away. We couldn't find anyone to confirm it ... until now.
: From Kenneth Deer, Editor/Publisher of Eastern Door ...
: "Mike Phillips died on September 15 at the age of 69.
: He left 4 children and seven grandchildren.
: He will be missed."
: We will, of course, update our interview pages with MP but thought it should be posted here first.
Yes, he WILL be missed ... Mike Phillips was a man of great wisdom & generosity. He was filled with life ... filled with love ... so VERY proud of who he was, yet so very open to all he encountered.
As Elaine has mentioned, we had been notified, via e-mail, of his death, some time ago ... As we were unable to confirm this, we refused to believe it. I feel a terrible loss, though he only entered my life for a few minutes on the screen & a few hours on the phone. I think we made it clear, at the time of our interview, what a true pleasure it was to get to know him a bit. I feel honored now that he gave us all what were to be some of the last hours of his life.
Yes, "He will be missed."
