Sorry to here of the passing of Manila Gipp. A friend of my
mothers (who passed over in her 95th year) and many many
others. She once gave the original owner of our cottage (Reverend
Lucas) some furniture that was surplus from the hospital in 1936.
We still use it. Got to date from 100+ years ago. Would somebody
pleae refresh my memory of her relationship to George Gipp? Until
just a few years ago , Manila had a birthday party at the Honold/
Kusts place towards the west end of 5 mile point beach.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 09:29 am:

Oh my God! What a great shot. I'll have to save this one, that's for sure.
Thankfully we're celebrating my parents' 55th anniversary today rather than sending out memorials about them. I am forever grateful. My dad almost died 3 years ago from a heart attack so every year is a blessing. He doesn't have a lot of pep, but he's here and we're so happy about that.
I will remember both sets of my grandparents though. They are always thought of and I still miss them. They are Pete and Irene Normand, and Ed and Eva Durocher. Miss you guys.

My sympathy to all of you who have lost loved ones. We are nearing the one yr anniv of my husbands death. It's rough!

Thanks Dan Belo and Eddie Fitz for the kind words on my cousin Bernard Benson. I think his Mom and my grandmother were sisters. Dan did you live by them when they lived on the end of the road on the top of a hill.

In loving memory of my husband, Dale, who passed away one year ago on March 29. He brought out the best in me and is missed very much. We spent many happy hours in the U.P. It is a special place and I know he's looking down on it every day ....enjoying the view.

By james f. haven (Technoido) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 03:21 pm:

By Lori Houle (Runnerlori) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 05:45 pm:

In loving memory of Uncle Joe, who passed in his sleep on March 15, 2006. Joseph Houle will be missed and fondly remembered by many! Press on regardless ... "POR" as he always said when we were cross country skiing! And I smile when I think of his big hug and greeting, as he would say, Laughing and Smiling: "Hi PatsyMicheleAnneJeanneLORI!"... his silly way of trying to grasp names. My cousin, his son, Joey was always known as JimmyGaryTommyJoey! He did it to us all.

Even as the sun goes down
to end the light of day,
it’s rising on a new horizon
somewhere far away-

And though our world seems darker
for the loss of one we miss,
our loved ones life is dawning
in a brighter world than this.

~~unknown author~~

Rest peacefully Dear Uncle Joe! Hugs, PatsyMicheleAnneJeanneLORI... :)

By Dotsie Salani Stewart (Suna) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 07:21 pm:

Was so sorry to hear of the recent passing of Joe Houle---what a great human being. He had such a wonderful smile and always had a funny story to tell about the Lauren Grove. I still have a chair that he reupholstered for my Mom, Dorothy Salani. I would walk by the shop everyday on my way to school and he would always have a cheery "greeting' from the door way. I always thought the house next door was so unique with all the brick exterior--also remember the old gate in front. God Bless the family.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 07:59 pm:

My aunt, Florence LaRue who loved the north.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 08:02 pm:

Fran, I was a friend of Rickey Benson when he lived in Royal Oak, many years ago. He was Whitey's son and they moved to Tawas in the fifties, is he related to you. I know he died quiet some time ago. Mrs. Benson was a great lady and she was Rickey's grandmother. There was a pond that was by the railroad tracks that was named Bensons' pond, I think.

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Friday, March 31, 2006 - 08:08 pm:

In memory of my "baby" brother, Chuck Rogers, who would have been 60 on March 15th. Miss you little brother.

By Betty Paull Colborn,AZ (Betty) on Saturday, April 1, 2006 - 01:15 am:

In loving memory of my dad, Bill Paull, formerly of Ahmeek, then Royal Oak. Went to be with our Lord 11 years ago this March. And my uncle, Harry Houle who left us 2 years ago this March. He was from Menominee. Both were very important to me and I still miss them both so much, but I know I will see them again.

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Saturday, April 1, 2006 - 11:29 am:

Gee,I am not sure if Rickey Benson is a relative or not. The Bensons who were related to us were children of Mayme(Mary)Benson.Her husband passed away when her boys were young and she raised them by herself even tho she had very very bad eye sight. I was young when we used to go there.She had about 5 boys(Francis, Leonard,Bernard,?and?! AS far as I know none of them had nick names.I don't remember a pond either.Just that they lived on the end of the road on to of this ridge.I wish I could remember the name of the street or area they lived in. Maybe by a ballfield? Was there an area called Lynwood near Hubbell? The name comes to mind.

By DH (Daveintemecula) on Saturday, April 1, 2006 - 08:46 pm:

Just wanted to add another message to note Joe Houle's passing. Joe was a friend of the family and I'd konwn him all my life.
