My best guess is that someone mistook Mike Taylor's sad passing for that
of Mark Feltoe. Both were (are) boisterous, redheaded camp kids, both
of whom incidentally had (have) epilepsy. Although most of us know each
other by sight, there are many of us who greet each other regularly
without being sure of names (at least this is certainly the case for me
-- it is one of my great frustrations with myself that I cannot seem to
remember names properly, no matter how hard I try). I can imagine that
some poor, well-meaning soul made the error in identification and the
whole business "growed like topsy" from there.
As I said to Richard earlier today, I think I speak for all of us when I
say that I'm ever so relieved that there have not been two tragedies
amongst "our" youngsters this week.
BTW, Mike Taylor's funeral was today. It was absolutely heartrending,
but it was good that we had a chance to say goodbye. It was
well-attended by many from the re-enactment community as well as loads
of people from all of the other facets of Mike's life.
