Michael and I met in grad school in 1988. We became friends and even though we drifted apart during the years, managed to keep in contact. We were classmates, colleagues and friends under the sun. Memories of playing Frisbee, hiking the Congaree Swamp,lunches, etc., live on in my heart and mind. My condolences go out to Priscilla and family, whom I heard much about! Rest in Peace, Brother.

Michael Juras, a pioneer of the New South

Picture Michael in the Congaree. He and his backpack are a silhouette in the late afternoon sun as he climbs out of the floodplain onto the wooded bluff.
There is a moment when we can't see our leader and .. feel..fear in the darkening swamp. Cypress knobs and Spanish moss reach for each other, chitter chatter, hoot and growl, spider eyes reflecting your torch back at you, the towering world record loblollies, the spiky palmettos of the pot-holed spongy floodplain..then, out of the dark, into the light we climb up and there's Michael, grinning at us, all of us.
The Indomitable Spirit.

What a surprise...a shock...to see that he has left us! Just last week at Rosewood Market, I saw Michael and we spoke as usual.

Michael was a man after my heart, one who rode his bicycle everywhere, something I started in life doing, but unfortunately do not do now like he did. He was always so gentle, soft spoken, happy and inviting. Never had I ever seen him with a frown, or unhappy words. He just seemed to spread peace, happiness and acceptance everywhere.

Michael added so much to our community and to the people within it. He will be greatly missed, but the seeds he planted will grow on forever.
