A special person has gone on before us. I believe I was one of Dr. Shumway first patient's when he came to Middleville. He was a very compassionate doctor . He delivered all 4 of my children. And was our family doctor until he retired. I will never forget how caring he was. So sorry to have missed his funeral. We were out of town and did not k know of his passing. But I will always have my great memories of my favorite doctor. May God bless your family and leave you with beautiful memories. Dave and Barb Dykstra

I am Sorry to hear of Dr. Shumway's passing. He was a very kind and caring person. That is why I am named after him. My parents Dick & Pat Baker trusted him to deliver and care for my three older bothers, my older sister & I. He was the calm caring voice when I was scared getting my first shots. All the way up to when I was eighteen with my last check-up. He lived such lone life & I know was a great man. I just hope I can give his name the respect it deserves. Douglas Baker
