Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Friday, December 31, 2004 - 06:48 am:

Our custom at the end of each month here at Pasty Central is to honor the memories of our loved ones and friends who have gone on before us. What better way than with a sunset depicting the close of each day and significantly the winding down of another year. Take a moment and reflect on the names of those we hold in our memories...

Dorothy Baccus
Doris L. Beck
William Joseph "Joe" Blake
Arnold "Arnie" Edwards
Clement "Maco" Miller
Rev. Dr. E. Olaf Rankinen
Our servicemen and women who've given the ultimate sacrifice

I have to add a personal note about one of the above names who was a special man in my life. Clement "Maco" Miller... I'll always remember him as a smiling, helping soul, who would visit with our family on Sunday's, taking my brothers and I for ice cream, eating dinner with us and then playing pinochle with our family. May he rest in peace along with all the others who've passed on.

We welcome you to add the names and memories of folks you hold dear...

He was born in Mohawk, to Reuben and Impi Hill, and although we lived downstate, the memories and stories of the UP were very special. Our last visit was for the Mohawk School Reunion, when he met some old schoolmates from many years ago, and had a great time! He was truly loved, and is truly missed!

I think it would be great at the 1st of each month to announce the births of all children born the previous month. Rick & I would be able to announce our 8th grandchild who is due about the 10th of this month. In fact we're leaving in a few days for Florida so we'll be there for its birth. We'll let you all know when we come back. We'll also be thinking of you in the UP while we're in sunny Florida. Jen & Jack planned their baby's arrival at the right time-in the winter to get us away from all of the snow! haha!!!

By JTTW, Dallas on Friday, December 31, 2004 - 06:55 pm:

My heart goes out to all who has lost a loved one. Dealing with loss can be a hard road - I have traveled that road often in my lifetime. This year I lost a good friend/co-worker Norine. I miss you Dew!

My "In Memory" for this month/year however, is for a little angel I had known for over 7 years. I was never very fond of cats but I was blessed with Cosmo who taught me to soften my heart and to know what unconditional love is truly about.

He was a bit skitish but nothing felt better than each night as I was drifting off to sleep, I would feel the softest paws slip under my cheek for me to rest on and I knew that he felt safe with me. I was entrusted to care for an angel!

Now I imagine him never feeling skitish, but forever bathing in sunlight - the sunlight of the spirit! I miss you Beautiful Boy!

By Norma in Midland on Friday, December 31, 2004 - 07:05 pm:

A very fond remembrance of our little gray kitty, Jiggerdee, who left us on December 10, 2004, just 66 days after our little Sheltie, Seltzer, did the same. She was 18 years, 9 months, and was a special little girl, definitely her mama's kitty. You left us too soon, Jigweed, and never got to know your new puppy brother, Shammah, well enough. We miss you so much,your boodles and purrs, your morning meows, and always "Thunder Paws", and tears still flow for your passing. Rest well, little girl, go find Seltzer, and be nice to each other.
